Enter washi tape. The versatile paper tape is a must for those of us who wish to revamp our older items, yet remain within budget. I found my little roll by K and Company at Target. It is adorable with a dotted Swiss pattern. Despite being less than four dollars, it has already lasted for 3 projects, with more than half a roll remaining.
With the washi tape, the rest is easy:
2.For any edges which stick out, add a bit of Modge Podge underneath, then smooth down again.
3.After it sets, cover the entirety with Modge Podge, using a foam brush for a more finished look.
