Decoupaging Gift Box Using Mod Podge...:)

Hi Everyone,
Its Hussena here and Today I am sharing an upcycled gift box I have made using Mod Podge...All this month we DT's have been showing you the different ways of using Mod Podge and one of the common technique using Mod Podge is 'Decoupage' where in you apply Mod Podge on any surface and cover it with color paper and in My case pattern paper and then apply Mod Podge over it again to seal it.. I have up-cycled/.recycled an old gift box by covering it with white cardstock first then layered it with pattern paper with stamping on it and then embellished it using various dies..Here's a look at My box :-
And a look at the side view too :
And the front view and how it open's up :
And if you have noticed I have used the local Handmade paper to make my flower's and all the greenery is also cut from Handmade paper I really liked the subtle glitter this paper gives and  its so easy to cut through these paper's using dies ...They do get stuck with punches but with dies it cuts smooth as butter :) ..And all the small flowers are punched and colored with distress inks..Don't they look so pretty !!!

Supplies Used :-
Mod Podge : Matt finish
Pattern Paper : Stash
Stamp :Hero Arts Flourish Background (Crafter's Corner )
