So….I love a challenge…..so I was all for this one. The Scribble Challenge is basically like “Iron Chef” for DIYers. The Scribble Shop sent me a box of random craft supplies from their shop and I was supposed to come up with something to make from them.
Here’s what they set in the box: Metallic Stamp Pad, Dress It Up Embellishments, Mod Podge, Stencil, Raffia, Glass Gems, Paisley Shapes, Popsicle Sticks, Colored Pencils
I used glass paint to draw little designs on each glass piece:
Dots on some to resemble toadstools:
A few hearts on a couple more:
Once the glass pieces were completely dry, I glued a neodymium magnet to the back of each one using household glue (ES3000):
Cute, little easy magnets!
Make a set for a gift!
I made a second project using the pencils they sent me. I cut them up into tiny, tiny pieces. Click on the image below to view the full tutorial:

Full post disclosure here.
Such a cute idea! I’ve never thought to use glass paint before but now I’m inspired to use it on a recent old window pane I picked up.
Thanks for the inspiration!
So, you will be making a different project from each of these materials?
I am wondering about the Mod Podge because I have some and don’t know what to do with it.
Mod Podge is the greatest stuff EVER!! Put it on anything, and I mean anything and it will NEVER come off, not even with a sander. My hubby made wooden bricks (yes & no one can tell they aren’t real) for the pillars on the outside of our house. I mod podged them with two coats and 4 yrs later they still look like new!! We have some very harsh temperatures here in Canada anywhere from 38 Celcius to -25 in the winter. We just recently used it on our tub surround to keep the caulking from turning yellow. 🙂
When I first moved to my new house after divorcing, I had nothing to put on the walls, but I did have a really cool art calendar on nice, textured paper. I cut out 5 of my favorite art prints and mod podged them to the walls (a coat on the back to glue them to the walls, then 2 coats on top with a small sponge brush). Instant and cheap artwork! 10 years later, they still look exactly like the day I placed them on the walls, and I still love them. But then, I’m the kind of person who arranges things where I want them and that’s where they stay…this wouldn’t work for everyone!

OMG! I LOVE Mod Podge! Did you know you can use it on a bar of soap and whatever you decoupage down will last longer than the soap? I have an embroidery machine so if I do a weekend trip with friends I will embroider each person’s name on a wash cloth and maybe add a polka dot ribbon, then decoupage a bar of soap with their name printed to match, then add little candies, or whatever and make a cute gift bag/basket. Try the soap thing though, pretty amazing that it works.
For sure I am going to play with the Mod Podge, it sounds like I will a new hobby going. Thank you all for your tips.
