Hi Peas,

I love the French Country paper and wanted to get a wood box from Hobby Lobby I saw last week and paper it. I was thinking of painting it first to match the paper line...either the reddish color or the blue that is in the paper...maybe just using the craft paint,acrylic.

My question is what adhesive do I use that will not buckle up underneath the paper and also how do you apply it ? To protect it after it is on and dried completely what could I put on top of this so if need be I can clean it some if needed ?

Thank you...

Use Mod Podge. Do a coat under the paper and then a coat on top to seal. It dries clear and glossy.

Do some practicing with the Mod Podge on some scrap wood with some scrap paper. I am awful with it and it is definitely a practice makes perfect kind of art form!

I use Mod Podge and spread it out with an old gift card, I find it works better than a paint brush or sponges.
