DIY Switchplate Covers & a GIVEAWAY!!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED....but feel free to still leave comments...I love to read them



The possibilities are ENDLESS!!


Sorry, I didn't take step by step pics but I PROMISE....They are so ***SIMPLE***



I saw this project on Mod Podge Rocks


Here are the materials that you will need....

Scrapbook Paper **Mod Podge (I use Matte)**Spray Adhesive**Foam Brush**Outlet or Light switch cover**Scissors, Ruler, Pencil





All you do is trace the outlet cover on the backside of the scrapbook paper. Next, add 1/2in border around what you traced. Trace the outlet holes. Cut out the template (remember to add the 1/2 inch border, and cut out the outlet holes.)



Spray both the outlet cover and scrapbook paper. Allow the adhesive to set up for 1 min then press together, making sure the outlet holes add up. Next, wrap the extra paper around the edges. You may want to do this as you would while wrapping a gift.


Take a pen and from the backside punch a hole where the screw would go. Allow to dry 30 min, and then give it two coats of ModPodge.

TA DA!!!!! There you have it....Totally NEAT, UNIQUE, and PERSONALIZED Outlet Covers.
For Light Switches: You follow the same instructions =)

One day I was surfing web and suddenly I came across website called www.home-businessreviews.com I discovered how to start my own home business and i was able after all leave my work where i was employed 1 year, now I'm making 150$/day. I was able to earn such kind of money because I discovered some really great home business reviews. At website called www.home-businessreviews.com

Anyway seems that site owner at last found really good online business program which helped him to start his own home based business, so he finally decided to make site and write about his own experience about making money online. It seems that he lost so much money before he discovered winner home based business program which actually work. But which one? Find out at website below!

I want not agree on it. I assume precise post. Specially the appellation attracted me to study the unscathed story.

The writer of amaworkman.blogspot.com has written a superior article. I got your point and there is nothing to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not disagree with: He?s smiling, so he?s either lying or telling the truth I will be back.
