  2. Choose enough play money to cover the top of box. Dry brush using the stencil brush, the money first with cayman blue next with Ice blue dark and last with licorice adding a little more around the edges. Set aside and allow to dry.
  3. Paint Jamaican sea stripes on sides of lid with ¼" brush and ice blue dark with the liner brush alternating each color as you go. Once dry, dry brush licorice at the top and bottom edge of lid. Dry brush jamaican sea on top of the upper edges of box.
  4. Open up box and trace each side of box onto the back scrapbook paper. Cut out each piece and glue to the sides of box using the mod podge. Repeat with the play money on top of lid. Allow to dry and then add an extra coat of mod podge. Allow to dry.
  5. Hot glue the letters onto the top of box as shown in photo.
