Daisy Container

By:

6 Comments

Turn an old coffee container or oatmeal container into a lovely daisy container from Beacon Adhesives. This is great for holding anything you wish like kitchen utensils, gardening materials or even snack treats.

Materials:

  • LIQUID LAMINATE
  • GEM-TAC
  • 9” X 5” round, clean & dry container (an old coffee or oatmeal container works great.)
  • 8” X 17 1⁄2 piece of plant print paper
  • 1 1⁄2” X 17 1⁄2” polka dot paper to coordinate with plant print.
  • 4 1⁄2” circle of polka dot paper
  • 35” of coordinating decorative ribbon
  • Seven 7/8” white buttons
  • 4 1⁄2” silk daisies
  • Soft bristle craft brush, 1” wide, scissors, paper trimmer

Instructions:

  1. Working in small sections, brush LIQUID LAMINATE over a portion of the container and immediately place paper over wet surface from the container base up to the top, smoothing with your fingers as you go. Continue until the entire container is covered.
     
  2. Brush a topcoat of LIQUID LAMINATE over the entire container and let thoroughly dry. For a glossier finish, brush another coat of LIQUID LAMINATE over the first.
     
  3. Cover the lid in a similar way.
     
  4. LIQUID LAMINATE as above the 1 ½” wide piece of polka dot paper around the canister, slightly overlapping, and then coat over top with additional LIQUID LAMINATE.
     
  5. LIQUID LAMINATE polka dot circle to the center of the lid, following above instructions. Dry well.
     
  6. Glue ribbon with GEM-TAC around the base of the canister over the print, covering area where polka dot paper meets the print paper. Use GEM-TAC to glue the buttons on top of the upper ribbon as in photo and then glue silk flowers to the center of the lid.

My first thought was to use mod podge instead of liquid laminate. I have used mod podge in the past on many different types of surfaces (cardboard keepsake box) and it worked great. I also thought of putting to use the many plastic coffee cup to use and giving as gifts to my coffee dringing friends. mary

THESE COMMENTS ARE INTERESTING TO READ BUT WHERE ARE THE ANSWERS? mod podge IS PROBABLY THE SAME AS LIQUID LAMINATE . RIGHT?

We get confused when we don't have the same products - what is Liquid Laminate? The sort of "glue" you that u would use for decoupage? And I assume GEMTAC is just regular glue? Thanks
