    I have some questions, if someone is familiar with decoupaging? I'd appreciate some help.

    When you did it, what was your preference of glue? I'm actually decoupaging onto glass and having a problem with it. I'm also using a jetink printer and looking for suggestions on how to stop the ink from bleeding.

    Did you try to spray the printed paper with a matte clear coat?

    I have only used ModgePodge to do decoupage.

    What a beautifully designed keepsake!

    I used a clear acrylic sealer but it didn't allow the paper to bend the way I needed it to. Maybe I sprayed it too well. Lol.

    Thank you for the compliment. I've decorated quite a few glasses, but I'm trying to expand them by adding pictures.
