At one point in my life I got ahold of some cool glass jars with fitted lids:
I liked them but not plain – I wanted to spice them up a bit. So what is a Mod Podger to do? Well, of course, add tissue paper. I love tissue paper on glass because with the light, it gives a bit of a faux stained glass look. As you can see from my first pictures. So how did I do it?
The Sizzix is nice just because it cuts out a lot of tissue paper at once. In various sizes.
Once you have the circles, Mod Podge them down (very carefully so they don’t tear).
Layering circles of different colors gives them a cool effect.
Once you are done layering, apply a final coat and let both containers dry.
It’s a beautiful effect when the light shines through!
These updated containers are so colorful, and you can make them with any shades of paper and shapes that you like. I’m partial to the blue . . .
I also made a faux stained glass house project for kids. Check it out!
