  2. Paint the edge of the box lid Wicker White.
  3. Trace pattern on stencil blank and use craft knife or stencil cutter to create stencil.
  4. Transfer the small mitten and circle patterns on the bottom of the box randomly. Paint the mittens and snowballs as shown, using Calypso Sky, Bright Baby Pink, and Sawgrass. Paint mitten cuffs Wicker White.
  5. Mix Wicker White with a little water and lightly highlight the colored snowballs.
  6. Transfer the large mitten pattern to the top of the lid as shown. Paint the mittens Calypso Sky with Wicker White cuffs. Let dry.
