Wipe clean the outer surfaces of the boxes to remove any dust. Sketch letters or numbers with a pencil. Outline the letters with the fine edding 4040 matt paint marker before colouring in. Colour in the letters using the broad edding 4000 matt paint marker.
With the word “Garden” we first coloured the letters green and then, after allowing the colour to dry, framed the word with a fine white marker. With the word “Tools” we did it the other way around – after colouring the letters white, we finished with a green frame around them.
