The word decoupage comes from Middle French &quot;decouper&quot;, meaning to cut out or cut from something. The finished object is also called a decoupage. The origin of decoupage is thought to be East Siberian tomb art. <br><br>The cut-outs for the decoupage usually come from magazines. Sometimes paint, gold leaf and other objects will be added as accents. Usually the surface decorated is that of a small box, chest, or small piece of furniture. After the cut-outs are glued, the decoupage is then given several layers of varnish until it&acirc;&#128;&#153;s difficult to notice the cut-outs and the finished look appears more like a painting or inlay work.<br>
