  1. Measure the sides of each box. Trim the paper to fit the sides of the box.
  2. Working on side first, apply Mod Podge matte to the back of the wrapping paper, place the paper onto the side of the box. Smooth the paper with the brayer to remove any air bubbles. Allow to dry for 15 min. and then add a top-coat of more Mod Podge and smooth your brushstrokes. Allow to dry before moving on to the next side. Cover all sides of the box.
  3. Sand the edges of the box to remove a little paper and add a decorative detail.
  4. Using hot glue attach ribbon around the outer edge of the box lids.
