Kids Art Portfolio - Epic Fail

Sometimes it's just not meant to be...

I had such a great idea for my grandsons to keep their special art work in; a Portfolio made from a pizza box.  It all started out innocently enough...

Kids Art Portfolio - Epic Fail...

But quickly went sideways. 

These kinds of projects sometimes need a couple of tries to get it right. 

This on is one of those, and there's nothing to be done except to learn from the mistakes. 

Using a different kind of glue, or different supplies, and figuring out how they all go together can be a steep learning curve. 

Persevere, stick with it, get it done.

The pizza box part went fine.

White glue is applied to the shiny side of the frozen pizza box...

But where it all started to go wrong was when I put the white glue on to hold the fabric.

I thought that the glue would spread out more...

I didn't let that stop me though - oh, no, just bulled my way through, stubborn and obstinate that I am.

Two coats of Mod Podge later, I finally stopped myself from going further.
