Modge Podge Mania...I Finally Made it to the Party!

I am excited to have finally jumped on the Modge Podge bandwagon. Before blogging I did not even know what it was. Xazmin @ This is the Year hosts a fun Modge Podge party once a month. This is my first time joining the party, and now I am hooked.

Now, I realize I'm a little late for the party. Oh, and Valentine's day has come and gone, as well as the candy I'm sure. However, I am here! For my project I found a couple of cute tins at the Dollar Store a while back. Then I pulled out some Valentine scrapbook paper I already had on hand. Well, I modge podged the tins into something special...a Valentine treat for the boy's teachers. They loved it. Cameron's teacher really loved it. She loved the vintage paper and was surprised to find out I did that.

It's not the best pictures. I am still learning to take pictures without the flash and my house is dark.

Before: Pretty cute, but not the look I was going for.

This was the easy part.

After: Now, I'm liking it.

Mmmm, even better!

Ready to be delivered.

I'm linking up with Xazmin's at This is the year. Check out the other great projects!

Haha! I didn't know what MP was until I started blogging too! Now I'm a total convert. I know as long as I have some MP I can make all kinds of stuff! Which really works out with inexpensive but awesome gifts.
