- Magazine Holder(s)
- Personal die cut machine with preferred flower die cut
- Large rhinestones
- Paper Crafting Adhesive (including Mod Podge)
- Scoring tools
- Paper trimmer
- Using your wooden or cardboard magazine holder as a template, trace one of the largest sides onto a sheet of 12x12 Embossed Foil paper. Make sure to center the holder in the middle of the paper and line up the top of the holder with the top edge of the paper so the edges will wrap around the front and back. Cut out.
- Repeat with the opposite sides of the magazine holder. There should now be two pieces that cover the largest sides of the holder and wrap around both the front and back of the holder.
- On both pieces, use a scoring board to make a line at the front and back edges of the paper where the paper wraps around the holder.
- Using decoupage paste, apply an even layer to the magazine holder and then to the wrong side of the paper. Place the paper onto the holder and smooth it down gently.
- Once the sides have dried, use the front of the holder to trace a piece that will cover the small surface. Depending on the size of the magazine holder, there may be enough scraps left from step 1 for this section. While cutting, move in about 1/16” from the original line. This will ensure that the piece is about 1/8” smaller than the surface of the holder.
- Lining it up with the top edge of this side, decoupage the piece in place. Allow drying time before proceeding to the last side.
- Repeat steps 5 and 6 for the backside of the magazine holder.
- Although the texture and foil finish of the paper provides great detail, embellish the front with a set of flowers cut from a contrasting print in the stack. Adhere to the holder with an adhesive dot.
- If you get some Mod Podge on the foil side of the paper, just take a slightly damp paper towel and wipe it off.
- Don’t have a personal die cut machine? Pull out a flower punch for the embellishments!
- Embellish as much or as little as desired—you could try a stacked circle set on the front, a variety of flowers, clothespins to hold important notes, and more.
