It’s a project that promises not just the joy of creation but also a wonderful way to recycle those old magazines that have been gathering dust. So, why not breathe new life into those pages filled with vivid images and captivating stories?

As you work, you’ll see your collage come to life, a vibrant testament to your creativity and vision. And once you’re done, just brush over a final layer of Mod Podge to seal your work, ensuring it lasts as long as your newfound love for collage making.
