  5. Paint all lids Burnt Umber.
  6. When dry, protect boxes and lids with a coat of spray satin varnish.
  7. Apply ribbons around lid edges with double-sided tape. (Cut narrow strips of tape for narrow ribbons).
  8. Cut pink cardstock ovals for bookplates, apply lettering, and attach to box with double-sided tape. Position bookplate over label and mark hole placement with a pencil. Make a hole with a pushpin, enlarging the hole until it is large enough for brad prongs. Attach bookplate with brads.
