- One wooden box ( I bought mine at Joann Fabric’s.)
- One color copy of a map of Italy ( I just googled map of Italy.)
- Modge Podge
- A foam paint brush
- Acrylic paint in your chosen color. (I mixed gold and yellow together.)
I gave the wooden box two coats of paint letting it dry between coats. I took my color copy of the map of Italy and cut it so that it would fit the top and bottom of the wooden box. Next I brushed some Modge Podge on the back of the map and carefully placed it on the box making sure it was smooth. I put some more Modge Podge on my brush and brushed it on the top of the map. I did three coats of this letting it dry in between coats. Make sure to keep smoothing it out to get rid of any bubbles. The Modge Podge acted as a sealant. I let it completely dry and now it was ready to give as a gift!
