  1. Spray five wooden ball knobs with Silver Metallic paint, and set aside to use later.
  2. Use sandpaper on sides and edges of the box to smooth any rough spots. Clean off dust with a soft cloth or damp paper towel.
  3. Spray entire box (including inside edges) with primer paint and let dry.
  4. Spray entire box with at least two coats of Glossy White paint and let dry.
  5. Apply Repositionable Adhesive to back of stencil and press firmly to the front side of the closed box. Cover rest of box with newsprint or paper and painter’s tape to mask off areas you do not want painted. Spray over stencil with Glossy Black paint, then carefully remove stencil and let dry.
  6. Repeat Step #5 on the back side of the box, then let dry completely before repeating process again on the two smaller sides of the box.
  7. Apply coordinating stencil design to the top of the box and let dry.
  8. Attach painted silver knobs to box with Clear Tacky Gel and let dry.
  9. Attach colored rhinestones to box with Glass & Bead Slick Surfaces Adhesive. Let dry.


  • Do not use printed newspaper or dyed paper as a masking material, as the colors may bleed onto the box when painting.
  • For a finished look inside, glue a piece of pretty patterned paper on the inside of the lid and satin fabric along the top of the inside lower portion.
