5.  Stop.  It looks pretty cool already, no?

But if you want to make the picture picture frame, just layer your black and white photographs on top of the background image and mod podge them on, too.

6.  Trace the frame opening around the heart.  You can download my FREE heart printable by clicking this link.

And here’s a little tip… you can learn from my big, fat trial and error…

Trim before you mod podge

Boo, again.


There ya go!

And if anyone out there does this better than I do, can you give me some private mod podge lessons?  I think I may need some one on one tutoring so I can figure this stuff out…

But those cutie-patooties look good anyhow, anywhere… and it’s getting easier every time I try it, so that’s something!

If you make your own picture picture frame, let me know…  I’d love to see how yours turns out!

    1. Tell me about it! I can’t stand it!

      I’m going to go try that on the Mod Podge and see if it will smooth that out a little!

  4. Cute idea and thanks for the tip to not trim after Mod Podging. I Have a HUGE bottle of the stuff bought for craft projects that exist mostly in my head and that should come in handy should I ever try any of them for reals.

    1. You have a huge bottle of wine for us?

    1. Thank you so much, Laura Beth! I’m going to make some more so I can perfect my Mod Podge technique…hehe…

  6. I have done a lot of Mod Podging. I have found a way of not having to cut the paper exact. I can’t trim a picture good so I cut out the area I want a little bigger then the shape. For example I have done a lot of decoupaging chip board letters. So I trace the letter and cut out wider then I need. After podging it on I let it dry. Then take a emery board and scrape the paper away going from front to back.If you do it back to front you will tear the paper. I then coat the front side with Mod Podge. Another thing you can do is pour out enough Mod Podge you will need to coat a piece and add fine glitter to it. The glitter is embedded in the Mod Podge and doesn’t shake off that way. I don’t really know when this was posted and you may already learned alot of these things just couldn’t resist trying to help a fellow crafter

    1. Thanks so much for the tips, Judi! I’m always open to learning better ways to do Mod Podge!
