This trunk holds all my sewing fabric and is in my craft area, so I wanted to do something fun on top. I cut up all different sizes and lengths of scrapbook paper. Then just went to town! there really was no method of how I placed the paper. I would just find a spot that looked good, put the mod podge on the back and smoothed it down ( I used a brayer to help with the bubbles) Then every so often I would stop and put a layer of mod podge on top. To top it off I sprayed walnut ink on it to give it a worn look.
