1. Paint Brush
2. Bottle of Clear Gloss Finishing Spray
3. Bottle of ModPodge
4. Tiles 4in X 4in (as many as you want to make)
5. Any soda box the you prefer
6. One 9X12 felt fabric ( Color of your liking)
7. One sharpie
8. Trash Bag ( optional if you want a clean surface)
Disassemble the box so that the box is now a flat surface
Use a Sharpie marker and trace the tile on the desired spot of the Soda Box
Cut the square out: Make sure to cut on the inside of the lines so that the piece is a little smaller than the actual tile – smooth out edges if needed
Take the felt and repeat the same steps: trace the tile on the felt using a Sharpie marker.
· Make sure to cut on the inside of the lines
Lay down the trash bag before beginning the next steps
Take the bottle of ModPodge and your paintbrush. Paint a layer of the glue onto the back of the soda box cut out.
· make sure to get all the edges
Place the soda box cut out on top of the tile centering it so that all sides are even. Then, place a heavy book on top of the tile to flatten the edges until dried
· Wait 2-4 minutes
Once dry, take the Modpodge and coat a layer on top of the soda box: Make sure all clumps are smoothed out
· Allow to dry for 10 min
Repeat step 9 : Do three more coats with a total of 4 coats
Once all 4 coats of ModPodge are dried apply a coat of Modpodge to the backside of the tile, time to lay down the felt.
Once you have a coat of Modpodge, place the felt on to the bottom of the tile and even out the edges
For the final step, spray the finishing spray on to the top of the tile for extra strength. Hold the spray about 6 inches from the tile and spray a light coat over the tile.
· Lightly spray left to right for a total of 5 seconds
Allow the finishing spray to dry for 24 hours, apply another coat if desired.
