    3. Measure down 1" from the top of box and 1" from the bottom. Place two pieces of 1" painter's tape on all sides to create a uniform band around the the entire box.
    4. Using the #3 round brush, paint vertical lines around the top and bottom bands using Dragon Fruit, White Wash, Soft Heather, and Baby Pink. (Do this on the top and bottom, as shown.)
    5. Move tape 1/4" away from the area just painted and paint this area Pistachio Mint with the same brush, followed by vertical lines of Sour Apple.
    6. Add large dots of Baby Pink randomly over the bottom and top sections of box with the #3 round brush.
    7. Using a fine line painting pen or script brush, thin Dragon Fruit paint to consistency of ink and fill pen or load brush. Paint dashes to look like stitching. (See photo.)
