I’m a total sucker for cute packaging and all things paper goods. And I’m totally the girl that hoards all of the cute boxes and bottles after everything is said and done.

The only catch is that I wish I could keep the packaging the same forever. A perfect example is that I refuse to actually use cute paper coasters because I don’t want to ruin them.

I also don’t like to actually use scrubs and candles near water because the label might wear off. So I’ve been working on these DIY Waterproof Paper Coasters and other paper pretties around the studio lately!

In case I’m not the only crazy one out there that thinks of these things, I have a cure for your pretty label woes. It’s called Dimensional Magic. 

Personally, I think the “magic” portion of that name is entirely appropriate considering you can now actually use the pretty things that you bought just for the label.

  3. In the seventh’s we made those with drawings on cardpaper and sharpies and finished them for making them waterproof with clear varnish.
    it worked greatly.
    but i like your solution as well, allthough mode poge is much expensively then those big varnish tins.
    Only it make the paper a tiny bit transparantly.
    but that can be lovely as well.
    When you don’t like it, use a layer of whiteglue and then add the layer of clear varnish on it.
    then the transparency will be not showing.
    It’s not to argue with you, but for many people it’s a less expensively sollutions.
    but thank you for the pretty and fun tute and the sharing;-D

  4. Fantastic idea! I am one of you in hoarding a lot of things. My husband would really told me that i should not keep them for long because it would look different through time, but since you gave me this idea then i think i have a whole lot of reason to keep my valuable little things. They make me happy. Thanks for sharing this. Will buy this later.
