{V-DAY Project # 4} Decoupaged Containers

Have you been saving those baby food containers??
This is what its for.
Valentines Day Project #4
Decoupaged Containers...

Can you guess what we made to put in them??
I'll let you guess today, and I'll post that project tomorrow!
For now.. here is a quick tutorial for these containers!
The Supplies:
Baby food containers
(I had my sister who a 10 month old, save hers for me)
Valentine themed Tissue paper 
(only $1 at walmart)
Mod Podge
Paint Brush
Pencil and Scissors

Unfold one piece of tissue paper
take one of the lids and start to trace it out on the back side of 
the tissue paper. Trace as many shapes as containers you have.
Then cut them out!

 Cover one lid at a time with mod podge...

Carefully place one of the cut outs over the lid you just mod podged.

Then apply more mod podge over the tissue paper.

I turned the containers upside down, and set the lids on top to dry for about an hour. 

And then you have a nice decorative lid! They look adorable!

What do you think?
Simple and yet so stinkin adorable right!? :)
Now what is your guess we will be using these containers for??
