Mod Podge Place Mat

 Hi Everyone!
    When I was asked if I wanted to participate in a blog hop sponsored by Plaid,  I didn't hesitate to say Yes as they have such wonderful products I use on a daily basis!
Plus Mod Podge is celebrating 50 years of amazing product!
Wow, right? Happy Birthday Mod Podge! Here's to 50 more years!

To top of the celebration, the Designer Crafts Connection page is sponsoring this fantastic prize pack!
Two lucky winners will receive everything you see above for all their creative projects.
In order to be eligible to win, we ask you to comment on their page and then enter for the giveaway. 


For the celebration,  I was given some Super Gloss medium  Mod Podge and some Decoupage brushes.

 I knew exactly what I wanted to create and set right to work!
I gathered up my supplies of:
A brush set for using with Mod Podge
Mod Podge Super Gloss
Brightly colored tissue papers
Clear vinyl (from any fabric supply store)
Pens, scissors and a shape to trace.
My project idea was to make a fun place mat to give life to our boring lazy susan.







So traced the lazy suzan onto the clear vinyl and cut out 1" from the traced line.

 I tore irregular pieces of the tissue paper and organized by color. I adhered the tissue paper to the vinyl with the Mod Podge. I started with the color yellow, then pink, green and finished with orange, especially around the place mat edges. 
 I left this alone to cure over night then flipped the mat over and cut off the black lined edges.
 
 I think its looks pretty and definitely matches my kitchen!
The nice thing about this is that you can customize it to match any season and the vinyl makes for easy cleanups from spilled food and drinks. 
Here's alternative variation I made for summer and family bar-b-ques. Before I adhered my strips of tissue paper, I placed some star confetti onto the mat.
Fun!
