Does the photo need to be on printer paper or photo paper?

Hi Paulina!

I used printer paper. I think photo paper might be too thick to get the decoupage effect.

Wow, that is the coolest thing I have come across after a very long time. I will definitely try making the vintage pictures too.

Intriguing! I wonder if this can also be done to prints on transparencies or book/magazine pages without damage. I suppose experimenting would be the way to know. How would we seal the lid on securely? Hot glue? Candle wax? Would that hold up if we ship it?

Wow, you are just full of questions! Ha! Well, I’m not positive about transparencies and magazine pages. I would think that transparencies might do very well. As for sealing the lid, I would suggest a bit of super glue along the inside of the rim. And I don’t think I’d recommend shipping it, unless you really had to. What a mess if it breaks!

Hope that helps!
