1. Trim the scrapbook papers to the backside of the hand mirror.  To create a tattered edge, tear the tops of the papers so the core shows.  Cut additional papers to different sizes for a collaged effect.

2. Working on the backside of the mirror, apply a thick coat of Mod Podge. Apply Mod Podge to the back of the trimmed paper.  Position the paper on the mirror.  Use the brayer tool to smooth the paper and to prevent air bubbles.  Wait 15 min. and top-coat with a layer of Mod Podge.  Repeat this step with additional papers.  Keep layering your design until you are happy.

3. Once all the Mod Podge is dry.  Hot glue ribbons and a silk flower to the design.
