Other Supplies

Crystal coarse glitter, Glittering glue, Toy car, Bottle brush trees, Gift box with lid


  1. Apply two parallel strips of patterning tape toward the edge of the gift box lid. You may determine the length and position according to your toy car. Then, paint 2 coats of Scallion onto the base of the gift box. Let paint dry.
  2. Paint 2 coats of Wedding Cake onto the top and edges of the lid and let completely dry. Apply a layer of glittering glue onto the top and edges, and then sprinkle crystal coarse glitter all over. Let glue dry and glitter set.
  3. Peel off the patterning tape to reveal the car's “tracks.” Using a hot glue gun, glue your car in place. Lightly paint Wedding Cake onto the edges of the bottle brush trees. Remove the base from one, and glue to the top of the car. The others can be glued to the lid.
