Try 3-D Decoupage!

February 7th, 2012 by Susan Jecminek

Try your hand at 3-D Decoupage.  I have always worked with collages and mixed media with multitudes of textures and always looked for new processes.  Five years ago I got curious after catching ‘The Paper Tole Supply Center’ website.  Deciding to try my hand at it, ordered several kits and loved it.  Now I choose my subject matter and incorporate 3-Dimensional Decoupage in a lot of my collages.  Giving kits as gifts, many of my relatives have been enjoying this craft for years now.  The variety of prints ‘The Paper Tole Supply Center’ offers is vast and carries kits and prints for the beginner to the novice.  It is a great source for all 3-D Decoupage/Paper Tole supplies.  Whether you are an avid stamper or have a love of paper and cloth crafts, you’ll love trying 3-Dimensional Decoupage!  Have fun!!
