  7. Brenda@Cozy Little House says:

    I just stumbled across your blog. And Mod Podge is my favorite craft! Now I'm going scrolling through your blog.

  8. Love the books! What a great idea for all of those garage sale books I see everywhere! I started a tin star like the one you have pictured, but never finished it . . . where IS that thing? Hmmmm.

  9. The Dye's says:

    Love the Modge Podge post. I agree with Kathy, It's a great idea for garage sale books or those books you have that keep falling apart.

    I'm not really sure about defacing my scriptures though. I think it would be awesome to make a sleeve for the cover, but I wouldn't feel right about actually covering it permanently.

    It is super cute though. So are the other crafts. Makes me want to start more modge podge projects. I need to finish the ones I just started though.

  10. I'm in love with all of these!! I have threatened to Modge Podge my cats if they sit still long enough. LOL

    I LOVE me some Modge Podge! :)

  11. Nicole ~ The Diva says:

    Apparently I need to whip out my modge podge and get busy.


  12. Carrie@My Favorite Finds says:

    Could you please tell me the link for the large M photo collage? I clicked on the “collage” word, and it took me to a view of the photo. Thanks!

  13. Beth Carter says:

    Why isn’t the “collage” a clickable link? I so want to make this!!

  14. That is my family monogram and it can be found here http://alittlemoore.wordpress.com/2010/03/04/mod-podge-family-monogram/

    Hope that helps!

    • YAY!!!!! Stephanie, thanks so much for contacting me and for updating the link for this tutorial! I don’t know why the link went bad, but I cannot even tell you how many people have asked me about it! Someone pinned it on Pinterest, so I had dozens of emails asking where the tutorial was on top of the comments left on this post! I tried finding your site to update the link, but I was unsuccessful! (I seriously have an email saved in my inbox that I forward to people who ask about it because I had so many people asking me!) It is a great project and I am so glad that I can finally refer people to the right link! I will update the post right now!!!

  15. Can’t wait to start, so many things, so little time!!!!

  16. Courtney Hess says:

    Is this letter by Darice made of paper mache? I am wanting to make sure before I order. That is the only think i can find online.

  17. Lanette Woods says:

    I’ve looked everywhere online trying to find a 23.5″ letter W to make the letter collage and can’t find one anywhere. Where did you find yours and if you have a link to where I could find it that’d be awesome! I LOVE the idea!!

  18. i would love to make the inital photo idea, but i hva no clue how can u please tell me how?

  20. Where can you make a letter collage like the M one?

  22. Jennifer says:

    I’m loving the “M” made with the child’s pictures!!! Can you tell me how you did this? I would love to make one for my son’s room!!! :-) Thank you!

  23. I love Mod Podge……the only issue I have is that when ever I use it on any thing paper wise my paper want to curl up or bubble up, not stay flat????? Can any one tell me why this is and how to stop it?

  24. thanks for sharing

  25. sharon knapp says:

    Love your M. Monogram pictures…I read your totortial and still have some questions. When you printed your own black n white photo , in the draft mode, did you just use plain copy paper or photo paper??? Did you have any problem with edges rolling up???? Hope to hear back from you. Think I’ m going to have my husband make the letters. They will be first initials for our 2 granddaughters. Thanks Steph.
