DECOUPAGE with Maree.
This is a lovely way to decorate anything from a vase to furniture, involving cutting out pictures from bigger sheets of paper, and using several layers of varnish. We had a great evening decorating little boxes using serviettes and mod podge with great effect.  Many thanks Maree!
