Decoupage with doilies...


As promised, here I am back with my dabble with decoupage.  I needed some storage in my Craft Room.  These kraft nesting boxes from Papermania were just the job, but how to decorate them?  I wanted something practical, no ribbons, flowers or bows as I'll be using them daily, so any excess decoration would just get in the way.
So, I had an idea to try some decoupage with mini doilies, a bit of an experiment really and I did have a panic when the kraft paper started to bubble up, but once they were completely dry the bubbles disappeared to leave a professional finish.  I'm impressed!

Here's my next project, a matching photo frame.

I think I've got the Mod Podge bug, I'm looking round the house for more boxes and containers to cover!   :)
