Papier-mâché recipe box (house shape), Foam paintbrush, Scrapbook paper, Scissors, Hot Glue, Zipper trim
1. Apply a coat of Crackle Medium to the entire outside
of the house box. Allow to dry 3 hours.
2. Working in one direction, apply Bright Baby Pink paint
over the dried crackle finish. The paint will begin to crackle as it dries.
3. Cut scrapbook paper to fit the different sides and
shapes on the house box. Apply the paper to the box with Mod Podge. Do this by applying Mod Podge to the box
with a foam paintbrush. Next, apply
Mod Podge to the back of the paper.
Position the paper onto the box.
Smooth with a brayer or your fingers to remove any air bubbles. Wait 15 minutes and top-coat with a layer
of Mod Podge.
4. Make the Flower: Mod Podge a circle of paper to the
back of a Mod Podge Designer Shape Circle.
Cut zipper trim into six 4” pieces.
Hot glue the ends of each zipper piece into a loop shape to form a
petal. Repeat with the remaining 5
zipper pieces. Hot glue the zipper
petals to the back of the Podgeable Circle.
Hot glue the zipper flower to the front of the box. Make sure you wear Hot Glue Finger Caps
when hot gluing.
5. Hot glue zipper trim across the top of the roof and
around the base of the roof.
Be sure to only paint in one direction when apply the
top-coat of paint for the crackle finish technique. This way your design will crack evenly and
you will not paint over cracked areas.
