Decoupage is a technique where you take paper (different colors, textures, patterns) and cut or rip it into pieces.
Then you take a special type of glue (matt, semi-gloss or gloss – depending on if you want it shiny or not) and lacquer the pieces of paper on to your surface. This is a really cool technique for photo frames, memory boxes, jewellery boxes, and more.
Look for really colourful patterned paper or even animal prints! You can wrap the print right around the sides, or paint the sides before you start for a finished look.
