  • Step 2Using pink paint, paint the top of your box as well as the scalloped edges around each side of the box.
  • Step 3Paint the rest of the sides purple. Allow to dry.
  • Step 4Cut a fun-shaped plaque out of pink adhesive foam. Write ‘Ahh-tissue!’ on the plaque with a thin tipped black marker. Attach to the front of your box.
  • Step 5Using CleverGlitz, outline your foam plaque, and trace the scalloped edges around your box.
  • Step 6Scrunch up little balls of pink tissue paper to create the flowers and attach to your box with glue.
  • Step 7Cut small leaf shapes out of green self-adhesive foam, and attach them near the tissue paper flowers.
