INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Using a #12 flat brush, paint the inside of the tissue box Bubblegum Pink.
  2. Using a #12 flat brush, paint the outside of the tissue box Bahama Blue.
  3. Cut decorative papers to fit all four sides of the tissue box and use Americana Matte Decou-Page to adhere the papers to the box sides.
  4. To make polka dots, use the handle end of the #12 flat brush dipped alternately in Bright Orange and Moon Yellow to add dots randomly to the top of the box. Bigger polka dots can be added by dipping a pencil eraser into paint and using it as a stamp.
  5. Tie a bow around the box, if desired.
