DIY {Do It Yourself} Friday: Mod Podge Photo Box

Good morning and Happy Friday to you all out there in Blogland! Sarah here for this exciting DIY Friday. :) Today I made a mod podge photo box. I’ve been wanting to up-date these boxes {I have a few} for a long time, so I jumped on the opportunity. I have done a few projects with Mod Podge and thought this would be a darling little thing to add to my collection! Ha! It’s so easy to make and you don’t need many supplies. You will need:

 1. Box

2. Old book pages {or… newspapers, magazines, scrapbook paper etc…}

3. Mod Podge {I bought the glossy kind at Joanns}

4. Spray glue

5. Brush {I like foam best, but any will do}

So here is my original and finished project! Do you like? I’m happy with the way it turned out. I find it has a vintage charm to it {which i LOVE}. This project didn’t take me long at all, maybe 30-40 min. tops… including taking photos and documenting everything. So Mod Podge on my friends!

**Note to self: LOOK THROUGH the vintage book you purchase at the thrift/antique store BEFORE buying it. Ha! I ended up with some twisted love triangle book and didn’t notice until I put the pages on the box! Ha! **

STEP ONE: Spray the glue onto the surface of your box. Arrange pages at random. I like the look of torn edges and random patterns, so that’s what I went with. Cover your entire surface of both lid and bottom.

STEP TWO: Brush the Mod Podge over your entire surface {both lid and bottom}. If a page has overlapped another page, life up and brush some Mod Podge under there. Notice that your page is secure. You will want your entire box to have a layer of Mod Podge coating it. Make sure you don’t get the pages too wet, otherwise they may slightly tear or bubble.

 STEP THREE: I trimmed the excess pages from the lid and the bottom and folded under the edges to ensure that the pages wouldn’t fray or look weird.

STEP FOUR: Do one last coat of Mod Podge to lock in all your pages! Let dry-You are now finished with a gorgeous photo box! :)

So, my Evy’s Tree blog readers, have you made any projects using Mod Podge lately {or ever}? How do you think mine turned out? Any suggestions for me? In general, have you done any neat projects recently? I’d love to hear from you! Maybe we could even feature your project here?!?! Comment below or you could e-mail me at I love learning how to do fun projects that I can use around the house! Hope to hear from you soon!

Until Next Time,

    Creative! I’ve mod podged Archie comics onto shoes… They are looking a little worse for wear now, but for a while they were awesome :-)

    I would like to express some thanks to you for rescuing me from this particular crisis. Because of looking out throughout the the net and finding methods which were not productive, I thought my entire life was gone. Being alive devoid of the solutions to the issues you’ve resolved as a result of your entire post is a crucial case, and the ones that might have negatively damaged my career if I had not discovered your web page. The talents and kindness in dealing with all areas was invaluable. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not come upon such a stuff like this. I’m able to now look ahead to my future. Thanks very much for your reliable and amazing guide. I will not think twice to endorse your web blog to any individual who wants and needs guidance on this problem.
