My mom trained me from a very young age to take as many teensy shampoo bottles and soaps from hotels as I could hide in my luggage. I’ve honed this travel skill through the years and now hoard every drink coaster, ticket stub and restaurant business card I can get my hands on, too. But then it all just sits in a plastic bin in my garage. Until now. Behold, the Travel Collage!
I recently gathered my favorite “souvenirs” from our recent trip to Spain. Then I took a quick trip to Michael’s for a bottle of the magical Mod Podge my son’s kindergarten teacher introduced me to (40 percent off with my weekly coupon, of course). Matte, by the way. Plus a square canvas and a foam brush.
Just follow the instructions on the bottle and… Voila! A cool way to display my favorite memories of our trip on the new “Travel Wall” I’m planning for our family room. Now if only I could figure out a cool way to display all of those cute little soaps and shampoo bottles.
