In preparation for Make Madness, I found a slew of cardboard eggs that I had great plans for at one time. While I had my napkin collection out for Day 12 (Mini Lined Envelopes), I decided to use them to decoupage these eggs.
I chose a napkin with vintage writing, butterflies and flowers (a Parisian feel), cut it into strips and used a 50/50 solution (50% Mod Podge/50% water) to glue on the napkins. Full strength Mod Podge can be a little too much for the thin napkins and cause them to tear. After they were completely covered, I set them to dry and then added another coat of glue because I wanted to coat them in glitter. I chose silver, goal and iridescent glitters.
After I’ve finished a few more, these will look lovely in a glass vase maybe surrounded by twinkly lights. I love the vintage look and how the plain cardboard plays against all the glitter.
Hey that glitter is almost as shiny as my coat. Not quite, but close.
