Pinterest Project – Switchplate Covers

another project inspired by a pinterest image: switchplate covers made pretty by covering them with scrapbook paper and modge podge!

my end result:

i’m quite pleased!

(note: if you decide to try this yourself, here’s a tip: your scrapbook paper should EITHER wrap all the way around to the edge of the plate OR leave a border/margin that begins right where the plate begins to curve, otherwise it won’t lay flat/flush against the plate.  also, glue the paper onto the plate first so it’s flat and secure, otherwise the modge podge may cause it to bubble/wrinkle if it’s not already held in place. i learned both of these things the hard way. )
