Remove the lid from the photo box, set aside. Using one 12" x 12" printed paper, cut two

pieces of paper measuring 11" x 4". Adhere to sides of photo box using the EZ  Runner adhesive. 

Cut another piece of the same paper 4 5/8" x 4" and adhere to back side of photo box. 


Using coordinating paper, cut two pieces 1 3/8" x 7 5/8" and two more pieces

1 3/8" x 11". Adhere all of the strips to the side edges of the photo box lid.


On one of the long sides of the box lid, measure and mark 1 1/2" in from the edge.  This is

where you will punch the first hole using the grommet pliers kit.  Punch three more holes,

spacing the holes 2" apart (total of 4 grommets).  Attach the grommets following the

manufacturer’s directions. NOTE: After punching each hole, make sure you clean the pliers,

removing the hole punched from the cardboard.


Once the grommets are in place, put the lid back on top of the box. Using a pencil, mark

the grommet holes along the top edge of the box, so you know where to punch the box.

Take off the lid and the punch holes on the top edge of the box where you marked.

Decorate and embellish the cover. Place ribbon spools inside of the box and feed the ends

of the ribbon through the grommet holes. Pull ribbon as needed and cut.
