Stenciled Gift Bags

You know how much I love to Mod Podge, so when Amy from Mod Podge Rocks asked if anyone wanted to try out the new Mod Podge stencils that she's designed with Mod Podge, I put my hand up and waved it around with a loud YES, PLEASE PICK ME!!!

While I was off on the other side of the planet a wonderful little package showed up on my doorstep with all of this in it!

You can see the other stencil designs here.  These stencils are Peel and Stick so they stay put, which is nice with such intricate patterns, and they're re-useable!

The hardest part about this project was trying to find something in my house that I hadn't already Mod Podged~
Mod Podge Stencils, Peel and Stick Stencils, Mod Podge Gift Bags

I got some lovely gifts for my birthday in these pretty bags and thought if I jazzed them up a bit that they'd be perfect for Easter.

Here's what you need if you want to refashion your own gift bags:

-plain gift bags
-Mod Podge
-Mod Podge Peel and Stick Stencils
-sponge brush
-piece of paper to catch your glitter & a spare dry brush to wipe the glitter down

1) These stencils are so easy to use.  Just peel if off of the plastic backing and place on your bag.  I lined mine up with the bottom and even used the outside frame for an additional border.

2) Get your Mod Podge into all the nooks and crannies of your stencils.  Don't worry, it's stuck right down so it won't go underneath.

3) Cover the whole thing with glitter!

4) Important: Peel the stencil off while the glue is still wet.  This way you can wash it off and reuse your stencil on other projects.

5) It's a mess but let all the extra glitter fall onto a tray or piece of paper (you can reuse that too) and gently brush away any excess.

Check out that chevron pattern.  I just love when you can get really crisp detail with glitter and that's hard to do without a stencil.

I've never used Mod Podge with a stencil so this project was a lot of fun for me.  Have you ever used Mod Podge in a different way?  Leave a comment below and tell us all about it, or leave a link to your project.

Very cute, and really simple too.
These would be easy to personalise too wouldn't they, I'm thinking glue pen to write a name, sprinkle of glitter - lovely!
