Mod Podge glasses case

We’ve all seen these, right?

This particular one came from the dollar section at Target.  Here’s proof:

Functional, but ugly.  I covered it with Mod Podge and fabric and now?

The perfect place to store your glasses (fakes, if you’re Macy).

I used regular old Mod Podge, not the fabric variety, and a paint brush.  I smoothed and pulled as I went.  I found a sheet of wax paper to be the perfect way to keep it from sticking closed while it was drying.  I think I still might glue some trim along the edges, but I haven’t found the perfect one yet.

    I have been thinking about doing THE EXACT SAME THING! They are so ugly uncovered.

  16. Kristine Robinson says:

    Love it – I think I might even be able to do this one. I still want to be you when I grow up. when I am done with school I so want to move in with you – but not in a creepy way. Just to learn how to do all your cool stuff.

  17. sportzmom says:

    Awesome. What did you do with the edges on the underside? Happy Thursday!

  18. Laurel @ Ducks in a Row says:

    I've got a couple that could use this treatment!

  19. Christina says:

    I really like it! How did you get the fabric to lay flat when it's rounded?

  23. ooh I love this, my son is always wanting me to craft for him but I find it so hard to find appropriate things for an 11 year old boy, he just seems to grown up for most of the things I have come across. He would love this!
