    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Basecoat the box and small wooden balls with Night Sky.
    2. Using a sanding sponge, lightly distress the top, edges, and sides of the box. Wipe away dust with a paper towel.
    3. Spray the box with one coat of Americana Matte Spray Finish.
    4. Using Oopsy Daisy stencil, stencil over the entire box lid using Deep Turquoise.
    5. Using 1/4” or 3/8” angle brush, paint on Turquoise Sparkle over the Deep Turquoise-stenciled areas. (Do two coats for extra glamour.)
    6. Using a sanding sponge, distress the edges of the box lid, creating a natural frame around the stenciled design. Wipe away dust with a paper towel.
    7. Apply a small amount of Lemon Drop to the centers of some flowers, using a fine/small brush.
    8. Using E6000 adhesive, attach a wooden ball to the bottom of the box at each corner, measuring carefully to match spacing. (These will be the feet of the box.) Let dry and cure at least eight hours.
    9. Apply adhesive-backed rhinestone gems to centers of each flower in stenciled design.
    10. Cut matching decorative vinyl and stick it to the inside of box and lid.
    11. Using adhesive tape runner, attach the decorative cardstock and vinyl, vintage image ephemera (images and/or words), and adhesive-backed gems to the inside of the box.
