DIRECTIONS: Refer to photo.

  1. Cut a large slit in the lid of the box, with the craft knife, on a protected surface. Cut a rectangle of fabric the size of the lid, plus 2" to wrap around the edges of the lid and inside the box. Center the box lid over the wrong side of the fabric. Cut the fabric in the slit opening so it can be wrapped inside the lid. Brush decoupage medium around the slit; attach the cut fabric to the inside of the lid. Hold or brush into place. Allow to dry.
  2. Brush the top of the lid with decoupage medium and smooth the fabric on. Brush the outside and inside edges of the long sides of the lid and smooth the fabric on. Brush medium at the ends of the box and secure the fabric, wrapping like a gift, applying medium between layers for a finished, flat appearance.
  3. Continue to cover box itself, except the slit, with fabric.
  4. Tear 1-1/4"-wide strips of solid fabric. Gather tightly with needle and thread. Secure the end of the gather. Glue gathered strip to the side of the box. Make & attach gathered strips around the edge of the lid.
  5. Gather 2 more 1-1/4"-wide strips to the length of the perimeter of the craft foam hearts. Glue gathers to the hearts. Allow to dry. Glue a heart to the back side to finish.
  6. Cut an easel from black cardstock. Attach one heart to the edge of the slit. Glue into place. Glue the heart to the edge of the slit. Allow to dry.
  7. Attach black alphabet stickers to the front of the 2nd heart. Position and glue to the first heart.
