Instructions

 

  1. Follow kit instructions for cross stitch panel.

  2. Basecoat exterior of box with FolkArt Acrylic Paint.

  3. After paint dries, rough up edges and corners with sandpaper, giving a worn look.

  4. Trim sides of stitched panel to ¾” from stitching.

  5. Spread a thin coat of Mod Podge Fabric to the back of the stitched panel.  Allow to dry.

  6. Spread a second coat of Mod Podge Fabric to the back of the stitched panel and center piece onto the lid of the box.  Smooth with fingers.

  7. Cut two 1” x 9” strips from the burlap.  One at a time, spray one side of the burlap strip and place one at the top and bottom of the stitched piece to create a border.

  8. Cut two 1” x 10” strips from the burlap.  Again, spray one side of the burlap, one at a time, and place on each side of the stitched piece to finish the border.

  9. Cut 2” strips of burlap to the size of each side of the box and the box’s front.  Spray with adhesive and attach to the box one at a time. Hot glue buttons to the top as desired.
