  1. Collect old used scrap boxes. (A coffee creamer dispenser box was used here.)
    Step 0 Example
  2. Cut the decorative paper to size. Using Matte Decou-Page, paint the surface of the box and the backside of the paper. Adhere the paper to the box and paint over the surface, sealing it down smoothly and flatly. Repeat this for three sides.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Repeat the previous step for the top panel of the box.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Using the same method listed above, decoupage the front of the box. Use a craft knife to follow along the edge of the front "door", and cut it down to size. Allow to dry with the "door" open.
