  1. Paint the box with Pink paint. Use two coats. Allow to dry. 
  2. Punch paper circles from the scrapbook paper. Apply Mod Podge to the backs of the circles. Position onto the sides of the box. Smooth with your fingers to remove air bubbles. Top-coat with a layer or Mod Podge to seal. 
  3. Position the stencil onto the lid of the box. Dip the end of the Spouncer into Mod Podge and tap the Mod Podge onto the lid, over the stencil so that the open areas are covered with Mod Podge. Remove the stencil and set aside. (After glittering, wash the stencil and replace on the carrier sheet.) 
  4. Poof the gold glitter onto the Mod Podged areas of the lid. Allow to dry. Once dry, dry brush the letters with a soft paintbrush to remove the excess glitter. 
  5. Hot glue paper flowers to the top of the box and diamond mesh to the sides. 

TIP: Make it personalized! Mod Podge a printed name or sentiment to the sides of the box.
