When having bigger pieces of wood to paper, I like mod podge in sections. Starting in the middle and working my way outward so I can make my paper lay and stay flat. With smaller wood crafts you can generally mod podge the whole thing. Usally anything that’s bigger than 6″ x 6″ I paper in sections.

Extra How to Mod Podge Tips:
The lighter or thinner the paper is, the more I really try hard not to go heavy on the mod podge because your paper will bubble. When using heavier paper like glitter paper, I tend to put a small layer of mod podge on the wood and a small layer of mod podge on the glitter paper. I usually only put mod podge on the wood craft and not on the paper unless it’s heavy card board paper. When brushing your mod podge on try not get a lot of it on the sides of the wood craft because when you go to sand the edges it’s harder to sand off.

Remember less is more! And always have fun!
