INSTRUCTIONS

NOTES: Let dry completely between painting steps. Use our Personally Yours Stencil line to do lettering or stencil of your choice.

  1. Use 3/4 flat brush and Pebble to paint inside of box.
  2. Place box on paper one side at a time. Use pencil to trace around shape. Cut out pieces with scissors just inside the pencil lines.
  3. Use 3/4 flat brush and Decoupage on box side. Position and press paper in place. Smooth out with fingers to remove any bubbles or wrinkles. Apply more Decoupage over paper. Repeat for each side.
  4. When dry, position stencil letters one at a time to spell out "DAD". Load cosmetic sponge wedge with Emperor's Gold and gently tap paint inside each letter.

HELPFUL HINTS

If paper edges overhang, wait until Decoupage is completely dry then use sandpaper to gently rub the edges smooth.
