Project #1 – Dia De Los Muertos Vase

This vase project features one of my favorite techniques with glue – crepe paper rosettes with a glittered edge. The glittered edge is achieved by dredging the rosettes in glue and then sprinkling on glitter. It's incredibly fun! Check out this post here: Dia De Los Muertos Vase

Project #2 – DIY Altered Wood Box

This wood box project features decoupage, one of my favorite techniques to do with glue! The layers are achieved with decoupaged paper, stencils, and ink for a fun look on an otherwise drab box. Read more here: DIY Altered Wood Box


Project #3 – Hawaii Scrapbook

I love scrapbooking so I thought it fitting to close this application with a scrapbook. I made this one for my parents to remember their trip to Hawaii, using lots of fabulous things to embellish the cover, from a painted tiki head to flowers and more.
