First let me say that I'm sure I'm not the first person to use Mod Podge to glue paper to jars. But here is my Mod Podge/glass story.
I was watching TV with Tony the other night and saw a pretty vase on a sitcom with rose circle pictures embedded in it.
"Hmmmmmmm...I wonder if I could make something like that with scrapbook paper and Mod Podge," I thought. Reluctant to potentially ruin an expensive glass vase I decided to start with some jars first (which were half off at Hobby Lobby and cost about $1.50 each).
I started with a jar, some Mod Podge, sponge brushes, circle paper punch, and scrapbook paper.
I punched some circles.
And applied them to the jar by painting on a little Mod Podge, applying circles, then a little more Mod Podge, then a little more circles, until I had gone all around the jar. When all the circles were stuck down I painted over the whole jar with a couple coats of Mod Podge.
Obviously you can see brush strokes which I am OK with. But (probably due to my paper choices) it didn't feel as modern as I would have liked.
So I looked around my craft room, spotted my paper punch and emptied out the contents.
I liked the colors and parts of type on the punches. I decided to give it a try with my second jar using the same technique. I dipped a toothpick in glue to pick up the small punches and apply them to the jar which was really easy and saved my fingers from getting too sticky.
