How To: Navy Blue Monogram Keepsake Box

Navy Blue Monogram Keepsake Box Supplies:

Paint the keepsake box desired color. Let dry.

Tape stencil in desired position. Paint over stencil to add design to top of keepsake box.

Create crisscross pattern with ribbon and staple ribbon on back side of cardboard.

Love Tufted Top Jewelry Box Supplies:

Paint box desired color. I used Martha Stewart Paint in Gray Wolf.

Lay stencil across side of box and stencil pattern onto box. I used Martha Stewart Paint in Lake Fog. Continue stenciling all the way around the sides of the box.

Photo Top Memory Box Supplies:

Paint box with first color. I used Martha Stewart Paint in Pond. (Place a piece of paper over photo insert area to keep paint from getting on that area.)

Quickly and sort of lightly paint over box in second color. I used Martha Stewart Paint in Blue Sky.

Use stencil and original paint color and stencil all over box.

Paint wood applique with both layers of paint. Sand with sanding block. Glue to top of box lid using craft glue.

Add favorite photo to box top opening.
