I'm doing a December book, not a daily, but just to remember our preparations. I purchased just a cheap, 5x7 book at HL. It's not leather or anything, but I'm wanting to adhere some pp on the front to decorate it. Will Mod Podge work for this?

I would imagine so.....I think it works on just about anything
You haven't said what the cover is made out of......
I've mod podged on paper, cardboard and plastic....it all works!
Good luck!

I mod podged an album that I bought at Michaels once and it worked fine. It wasn't leather or cloth either -- just the usual covering. I think it's vinyl.

It should work. I used it on a composition book. Spread the Mod Podge on the back of the paper, and front of the book, dry, then Mod Podge over the top.

One thing to keep in mind, if it's cold and damp right now, you may have trouble with the Mod Podge drying well.

What made the vellum wrinkle? When you printed on it or when you were trying to put it on glass?
And are you using actual vellum?
Any vellum that I have used is fairly thick and not easily wrinkled....

When I print on vellum, I select the paper type accordingly in printer settings....depending on your printer, you might select "other transparency" or something like that for paper type.
After it prints, let it sit for awhile to dry...it takes several minutes for the ink to dry on vellum paper if you are using an inkjet printer.
After it's dry, spread a thin layer of Mod Podge on the back of the vellum and a thin layer on the glass....carefully apply the vellum, smoothing it out as you go
After that, you can paint on another layer or layers of Mod Podge for protection if that is what it calls for.....

Thanks all for your answers. I did it & it looks great. I'll try to post a pic whenever I can.

This sounds like a good idea, would be cool to see a picture if you have one?
