Do I Love Mod Podge?

Why, yes I do. I use it for so many things.

The other day, my husband came home with two of these butt-ugly lunch boxes from some work event. They are perfect for the kids to stick toys in or to bring a lunch on an outing (duh).
I decided to spruce them up a bit and cover up the text. I made a stencil of the indentation on the box, then cut some scrapbook paper to stick on there. I used Mod Podge and put a layer underneath, smoothed my paper onto the glue, then let it dry. After I let it dry for a minute, I added the kids' names with some rub-ons. Then I put another light coat of Mod Podge on top.
Voila! Personalized old-school lunch boxes. (They aren't as cool as my old Shirt Tales lunch box, but they'll do!)


  1. Shirt Tales! I didn't know anyone else watched that.
    I think these are WAY cooler. Cute idea!

  2. Awesome... you've inspired me to cover everything ugly in my house with mod podge and cute scrapbooking paper!

  3. Good job. They went from ugly to cute.

  4. Those turned out really well. Good thinking!!!

  5. I love all your ideas! I can't remember how I found your blog, but I love it!
