Decoupage is where you take an object (like a jewelry box for example) and apply paper (usually like cut-outs of flowers, or pictures) on it, with decoupage medium (a cross between glue and varnish, so to speak). The picture or cut-out has decoupage brushed over it also...so that it stays in place, is preserved and it ends up having a shiny gloss/sheen to the project.

It's still done, but was highly popular back in the 60's and 70's time (and prior) time frame. If you are interested in it, any major craft store has booklets and supplies or you can study it on the internet.

Hello ! Decoupage is the french word for cutting out from french verb "couper" which means to cut. If you type "decoupage artistique" as key word in google image search you will see some amazing paper crafts.
