Scrapbook Paper & Mod Podge Frame Craft

Create customized party accessories when you use paper and Mod Podge to craft a custom picture frame.

I just love Mod Podge. It makes it so simple to create your own custom wall decor and coordinate the look of your party decorations.

Recently, I was in charge of the party supplies for my MIL’s 60th birthday. I really enjoyed creating this decorative frame with polka dot scrapbook paper that matched the pennant banner and other decorations I crafted.

The 4×6″ chipboard frame was only $3.50 (half price) at Hobby Lobby. And the single piece of scrapbook paper was $.59. I already had the Mod Podge and foam brush on -hand.

4. Use the foam brush to apply a medium coat of Mod Podge to the front of your chipboard frame & position paper over frame, using a firm flat surface (such as a credit card) to smooth out any bubbles or wrinkles.

5. After 15 minutes, apply a coat of Mod Podge to the front of the frame (over the scrapbook paper) to seal it and create a protective coating.

That’s it! So simple!
