Savannah Mirror 1 Stay True Be YOU tiful Mirror by Savannah Starr The first step in transforming your dollar store mirror is to collage tissue paper on the back. I like to tear my tissue into approximately 2″ – 3″ pieces. Brush a coat of Aleene’s Collage Pauge onto the back and lay the tissue into the glue. Brush a coat of Collage Pauge over the tissue.
 Savannah Mirror 2 Stay True Be YOU tiful Mirror by Savannah Starr I like to work sections at a time, overlapping the tissue to cover all of the mirror. Be sure that you also wrap the tissue around the edges and glue in place. Continue to collage until the entire back of the mirror is covered.

 Savannah Mirror 6 Stay True Be YOU tiful Mirror by Savannah Starr For the handle, I brushed on Aleene’s Tacky Glue and sprinkled micro-beads into the glue. Let dry. You may find that you need to add more glue and beads to cover any areas of the handle that were missed the first time.
Savannah Mirror 7 Stay True Be YOU tiful Mirror by Savannah Starr To decorate the back, I glued the letters in place along with some metal embellishments that I first painted black and then antiqued with gold Rub ‘n Buff. I also glued the sequins in place to create the look of a sparkly path. Remember that the idea behind this mirror is for you to personalize your own mirror with your own power words and colors and embellishments and designs. Make it a reflection of your own creative style!
