Mod Podge Transfer Jewelry Box

Sunday, June 3, 2012
I LOVE the Mod Podge transfer method. It's such an easy and quick way to personalize plain items or transform fancy ones. I've used it in several projects - here, herehere, and here


For this project, I used another one of the little boxes I picked up at the Christmas Tree Shops for less than $2. First, I sanded off the word "keys."



Then I mod podged my laser-printed, reversed image, onto the box. (The photo below is from the Mini Flower Boxes tutorial, using the same boxes and same method.) The image I used for this jewelry box came from the incredible Graphics Fairy.


I let it dry for a couple of hours. Then I carefully sliced through each image where the box opened so that I could open the box. Next, I used a wet paper towel and rubbed off the paper so that just the toner image was left.


Finally, I used a piece of homemade chalkboard paper (from this tutorial), cut it to the size of the glass top, and wrote "beauty" on it with some chalk. I used some scotch tape to adhere it to the inside of the box, and that's it!

  1. What a sweet little box! I have never tried the mod podge transfer method. So you have to use a laser printer - not inkjet?! Argh, I have an inkjet.

    1. Thanks! I actually have an ink jet, so I print several images and then make laser copies of them at Kinko's or at my school. I wish I had a laser printer because that would be so much more convenient!
