Paint along the edges of the box, about ½” in and along all sides of box, except the bottom. Let dry.
Take the 12” x 12” paper and cut into the following pieces:
1 – 5 ½” x 7 ½” for the top of the box
2 – 2 ¼” x 7 ½” for the front and back sides of the box
2 – 2 ¼” x 5 ½” for the sides of the box
Trace the pattern and cut out one triangular piece for the front closure.
Center and attach each of the pieces to the corresponding sides of the box with double stick tape. For the piece that goes on the front side, you will need to punch a small hole to go over the snap.
After placing on the triangular piece, cover the snap with a button or sticker.
Add on more embellishments to the box as desired.
