Candice and Richard Elton are a husband-and-wife writing team. They are authors of My Christmas Album, My Vacation Album, and My Family Album. Candice is a full-time mother of five. Richard is a firefighter and freelance designer. Thankfully I merely bought this book at a discount store to loot it for its attached mini-bottles of Mod Podge. It would be a huge disappointment if I'd bought it for a child; I suspect any child who tried it would end up crying. The projects are little more than "stick stuff to other stuff", and the materials provided are so inadequate, and of such poor quality, that they seem to be intended to tease and torment rather than entertain.

Thankfully I merely bought this book at a discount store to loot it for its attached mini-bottles of Mod Podge. It would be a huge disappointment if I'd bought it for a child; I suspect any child who tried it would end up crying. The projects are little more than "stick stuff to other stuff", and the materials provided are so inadequate, and of such poor quality, that they seem to be intended to tease and torment rather than entertain.

The pictures in the book show a fairly high-quality brush; what is actually provided is a cheap brush of the kind known as an "acid brush" like the one you've probably met inside a rubber cement can. Likewise, although the paper-specific version of Mod Podge is shown in the book and on the cover photo here, the package actually contains the regular matte-finish variety (yellow label) instead.

One of the seven projects is covering a light switch plate with animal-print tissue paper. The pages show several completed switch plates, all neatly covered with unbroken expanses of paper (zebra, leopard, peacock, etc.). Just how one is expected to stretch a 4" piece of paper to cover a 4-1/2" (actually, 4-3/4" if you count the curved edges) switch plate is not explained. Thanks to the distinctive markings on some of the paper in the photo, which I compared to that actually supplied and did a bit of math, it appears that the paper pictured is actually 5-3/4" in length, which would cover the switch plate nicely. However, apparently saving a fraction of a cent on some bits of tissue paper was more important to the creators of this book than actually allowing children to complete the projects as pictured.

Another place they cut corners was on the ball chain supplied for the keychain project. The chain shown on the completed project has 27 visible links, and a few behind the cardboard. Dividing the supplied chain into 6 equal sections as specified provides only 11 links each, about 1/3 the size pictured -- not even enough to for it to form a circle. The first hit I got searching for the stuff is a place selling ball chains as necklaces, and they sell 24" lengths for 14 cents in quantity 5000. This author and/or publisher made the decision to frustrate children to save 7 cents. The "chipboard" supplied for the keychains, by the way, more closely approximates shirt cardboard than the chipboard I'm familiar with from scrapbooking, and it was deemed necessary, in order to make it look nice in the package, to glue all six pieces together so firmly that I was unable to separate them without tearing them. Note: chipboard shouldn't tear.

Then there is the patterned paper and pictures to cut out on the last few pages of the book. Again, it seems like it was designed to frustrate children, because instead of being printed only on one side of the page, as you would expect, they're printed two-sided, so the user has to decide which ones they're willing to sacrifice. Cut out the crown, for instance, and you've just snipped the Eiffel Tower in half. This is sold for children from 9-12, and the appearance will probably appeal to only the lower end of that range and younger. Deciding which pictures they have to destroy in order to use others will probably not entertain young children. And it should be unnecessary. The layout is massively wasteful of space; cutting back on some white space, arranging some photos better, and putting more information on each page could easily have freed up the 7 pages required to print each of the paper sheets single-sided and avoid frustration and tears.

By my figuring, they saved less than ten cents by cutting corners on the materials, in the process making the projects those materials were supplied for impossible to complete without a trip to the craft store.

Since you're going to have to go to the craft store anyway, you may as well buy a bottle of Mod Podge, a 25 cent foam brush, and some decorative paper, then visit the Mod Podge manufacturer's website for dozens of projects, and not waste your money on this book.

Kids will love this book filled with ideas for giving schoolbooks a unique artistic look or for creating everything from a custom light plate to a keepsake travel box. This book/art kit contains everything you need to get started:

1 bottle Mod Podge Glos-Lustre
1 bottle Mod Podge Glue - Matte Finish
A Light Plate - you can cover with your own art
Tissue Paper - animal print and feathers
Small paintbrush
Six Chipboard shapes - can be made into backpack jewelry
The book - includes pages of designs to cut out, pages of letters, words,
numbers and messages like "Best Friends Forever."

The projects include:

Wall Art
Journey Travel Box
Nature Journal
Extreme Collage
Using Photos
Junk Funk

The tips throughout give ideas for how you can use your favorite pictures, collect natural materials for your art or create unexpected items out of junk you find around the house.

I had an especially fun time making a travel box and also included some of my own fabrics for additional artistic flair. You can pretty much use anything from magazine clippings to copies of photographs to scrapbooking supplies to create some especially fun items to treasure or give away as gifts. You glue on the paper clippings (or I found it fun to tear the paper for a different look) and then paint the gloss over all the pictures.

If more than one child will be using this book, you may also want to order an additional bottle of Mod Podge Gloss Sealer, Glue & Finish. I found that with one big art project, I went through two 2 fl. Oz bottles of glue fairly fast. You can use either bottle to glue and finish, just one turns out glossy and the other has a matte finish.

Once you have the supplies and learn the techniques of decoupage, the possibilities are endless. Perfect projects for a rainy day or fun to work on while watching a movie or music concert.

1. The instructions on page 15 say to sand the cover of the notebook first. This is not necessary. I successfully collaged at least a dozen of the same composition books shown in the photographs without sanding the covers.

2. If you lose the wooden stick (page 17) or if more than one kid is working/creating at the same time, use any ice cream or Popsicle stick.

3. There is no piece of paper large enough to cover the light switch plates as shown on pp. 20 -22.

4. Another way to "ink," (page 26) is to swipe the ink pad across the top surface of the paper you scrunched and flattened out.

5. The patterned papers at the back of the book are printed on both sides. So, for example, if you cut out the words and phrases on the page that starts with "LIKE YEAH!", then you are cutting through the alphabets on the reverse side of that sheet. And so on.

6. This is a decent enough intro to decoupage, but it could have been so much better.
