Step 1: Gather Material
· Scrapbook paper
· Mod Podge Matte
· Printed labels (you can find pre-made labels here ---> https://www.etsy.com/listing/230866506/play-food-labels-in-chalkboard-style )
· Scissors, a pencil, sponge applicator, tape (only if you have some tricky corners).
Step 2: Set Up Your Work Space
This project is easy to leave and come back to so take your time and enjoy creating.
My tip with Mod Podge is to use wax paper as the barrier so if you end up getting your stuff sticky you won't thin your project.
Step 3: Take Apart Boxes and Trace
On a flat surface lay the box on top of the scrapbook paper, make sure the paper is flipped over with the patterned side facing down.
Use your pencil to trace the box, I flipped the edges that tuck into the box up as I traced the boxes.
Step 4: Cut and Mod Podge
On the backside of the paper put a small layer of Mod Podge with you applicator. Set the paper aside and ppt another thin layer on the box face.
Lightly lay the paper on the box face and line it up. Once everything is lined up gently press the paper into the box.
Step 5: Apply Pressure
Step 6: Fold the Boxes
I had to tape the carton style boxes because they didn't fold back neatly.
Step 7: Add a Coat to Seal
You can just put the Mod Podge on the front of the box or over the whole box, like I did. The Mod Podge gives the paper a waxy look making it seem more authentic to me.
Let the glue set for 24 hours before play for the best result.
