    I just read this and a light bulb went off....when I do give gifts I like them to be homemade. I of course spend most of my money on my children...so not much left over. I love the thought of making decoupage items with my left over small scraps. Great gift for coworkers.

    How to make a rug from fabric scraps using decoupage. No sew project http://www.ehow.com/how_7705095_make...or-quilts.html you can also make this from a quilttop...thinking it would be a great postage stamp rug made from all of my scraps.

    I am going to buy some fabric decoupage glue and give a few of these a try...I would love to see what others make with their scraps.

    I just did the front of a dresser I picked up for 10 bucks at a yard sale, painted it white, then used scraps on the front of the draws in blues and greens and decoupaged it all.

    Had forgotten about decoupage. I have some cheapie ugly outdoor plastic chairs that are going to be treated with this process now that I have rediscovered it. Wonder how they will hold up. Not much cost to find out with old scraps, glue and a coat of varnish.

    I did a PVC table with the outdoors decoupage stuff, and it came out great, but only lasted a couple of weeks in the weather...bubbled up and flaked and curled...just an awful mess! I think the outdoors stuff would work better on a covered porch, or an area where the sun and rain can't get to it!

    Thanks for the info. Very nice to know and glad to to know it. Was worried about it. Fortunately I do have a covered patio. Matter of fact it is weather proof enuf that we have extra boxes on it and none of them have deteriorated. So I will keep my hard worked on projects away from patio edges!

    I have a picnic basket with a lid on it that I want to try this process on. Also the weaving is starting to break, is it possible to decoupage this as well and if so is there any different I need to do? Would I have to do the inside as well? I have not done decoupage since my daughter was in brownies and we made candle holders from small glass bowls & that was about 30 some years ago. Any suggestions or thoughts as if this is doable .

    Thanks
    Judy

    Thanks for the tute!!! I saw these plate at a fall festival. The gentleman was selling them for $25.00 a piece!!! I just saw the clear plates at the Dollar store. May need to add this to next years Christmas gift list. I thought you could make them for the major holidays for a GREAT bridal shower gift. Just a thought....

    I have 11" decoupage plate hanging on my kitchen wall. It has bird fabric and was made by one of my crafty quilting friends. Nice gift. Love it since I am not crafty, just needlework for me.

    I was having a hard time picturing what these plates might look like so did a Google search and found another site with some pictures and more detailed instructions. Thought you all would find it useful. I had never heard of this or seen the plates anywhere. These are definately on my to-do list for Christmas gifts!! Thanks for sharing the idea.

    I would think this could be used to make fabric postcards too, wouldn't the glue help to stiffen the fabric up? ;-) May need to try this out :!:
