Directions  

   Note: You can leave some of the original photo box cover showing or completely cover it

            as in the sample. 

   Place box cover onto the mulberry paper as if wrapping a present and cut to fit.

   Adhere the mulberry paper to the cover with the decoupage glue/sealer. Fold the edges

   in to make a neat corner. And fold mulberry paper over the edge to the inside of the cover

   and adhere. Do the same for the bottom of the box. 

   Tear pieces of the printed paper and place on the sides of the box and cover. Position the

   pieces and adhere when you like the design. Do the same with the word/phrases paper.

   Since this is for a graduate, use inspirational and happy words/phrases. Tear pieces of the

   mulberry paper and overlap some of the printed paper edges. Create a collage look all over

   the photo box using the decoupage glue to adhere and seal the papers. Let dry.

   Use box to store prom bids, photos and other memorabilia form your school days.
