Decoupage and Pizza: What a combo!

iCons does Decoupage

Tuesday 3/21, iCons students proved there is no craft they can't tackle.  Check Decoupage off the list.  Students and faculty (Ally Hunter) gathered in ISB 145 armed with nothing more than scissors, craft paper, e6000 apoxy, mod podge, and some creativity.  Some beautiful work was created and some fun had.  At the end of the time, the pizza box was empty and many were peeling the glue off of their fingers with a look of accomplishment on their faces.  A small break from the stresses of academic life.
