I *think* if you did the fabric it should work...but you would have to make sure its a thin cotton and then coat the heck out of it with modge podge....then use a spray sealer...

I would think you would use both...I would modge podge it to stick it down and a little overtop, so it soaks into the paper...then when its dry I would use spray sealer...You can get some in the paint section for sealing paintings...Just so its sealed from fingers messing it up...

I just made one of these and using a decorated napkin...like the kind you use for parties...you peel off the back layer of the napkin so you just have the picture piece....hope this helps! =)

Her items says it contains the following materials:

plastic outlet plate, decorative paper, mod podge, acrylic

I would use scrapbook paper, mod podge and brush a thin layer over the switchplate and then again over the paper. I would spray with an acrylic clear sealant and you should be good to go.

Very cute!
