1. Paint the inside of the box and lid light blue using the wide brush. Leave to dry. Paint the outside of the base orange and leave to dry.

2. Cut a piece of Oaki Doki fabric approximately 23 x 23 cm. Use the thin brush to cover the outside of the lid with transparent glue. Position the lid in the centre of the fabric. Stick the fabric to the lid, smoothing it out to the edges. Apply more transparent glue to the edge of the lid. Pull the fabric down over the edge of the lid. The tighter the fabric is, the less folds will appear around the rim. Fix the fabric with wooden pegs and leave to dry. Use scissors to cut the excess fabric.

3. Cut a 42 cm strip of bias binding. The bias binding is folded in the middle making it easier to fold it over the edge of the lid. Wrap it around the bottom edge of the lid (half on the outside, half on the inside) and stick it in position with transparent glue. Hold it in position with wooden pegs whilst it dries. Thread a piece of waxed cotton cord through the button and knot it. Glue the button to the centre of the box lid using the hot glue gun.
