Learn how to transform your Mixbook canvas into a custom DIY piece of art:


Mixbook Canvas Print

Mod Podge Satin

Mod Podge Brush

Mod Podge Squeegee

FolkArt Multi-Surface Acrylic Paint to coordinate with scrapbook paper - we used Daffodil Yellow and Medium Gray

Wood Shapes of your choice - we used a Flower and Butterfly.

Scrapbook Paper of your choice

Craft Knife

Hot Glue Gun



Paint the wood shapes with FolkArt to coordinate with your choice of scrapbook paper. We painted the body of our butterfly Medium Gray and the inside of the wood flower Daffodil Yellow. Allow one hour dry time.


Next, trace the outline of each wood shape onto your scrapbook paper. Cut along line.

Using Mod Podge Satin, attach scrapbook paper to petals and wings of the wood shapes by putting a thin layer of Mod Podge onto both the surface and the back of the paper. Press out any air bubbles with a squeegee or old credit card. Allow to dry, and finish the top with a coat of Mod Podge Satin. Allow one hour dry time.


Hot glue wood shapes to photo canvas.

To embellish canvas edges, choose scrapbook paper that compliments the colors within your photo canvas. Cut scrapbook paper into 4 strips that are the same length and width of each edge of the canvas. Glue the strips along the edges of the canvas with Mod Podge Satin and smooth out any air bubbles with the squeegee. Allow to dry. Finish the top with a coat of Mod Podge Satin.


We’re in love with how our canvas came out and how easy it is to create!
