DIRECTIONS:

1 Lightly sand any rough edges of unfinished wood box. Wipe clean.

5 Repeat step 4 for the top coat of the FolkArt® Home Decor™ Chalk. Allow dry.
6 Lightly sand edges, corners and sides of box for desired distressed look. Wipe clean.
7 Follow directions on the bottle of wax to apply to all painted areas. Use a soft cloth to wipe off any excess wax and buff.
8 Cut a piece of scrapbook paper to fit frame. Place glass and paper inside frame and put back together.
9 Create a paper lining on the inside of box by carefully measuring each side. Cut papers to fit measurements.
10 Apply decoupage medium onto the back of the paper. Place paper inside box and smooth out gently, removing any bubbles. Repeat with each paper until complete. Allow to dry.
11 Apply a layer of decoupage medium over all papers that have been adhered in place. Smooth out any bubbles. Allow to dry.
12 Create dividers for inside of the jewelry box. Measure the inside dimensions of the box. Cut pieces from the foamcore board to fit inside the box using a craft knife. Paint the edge of the foamcore to match the box. Allow to dry.
