Use the edding gloss paint markers to decorate the larger sheet of paper for the lid (a few ideas are: simple patterns, a couple of wavy lines, words such as LOVE repeated over and over again, the recipient’s name). Later, when you fold it, only certain sections of the pattern will appear. Of course, after folding you can always add finishing touches such as little hearts, lines or dots, to create exceptional, unique packaging for your gift.
Now fold both sheets by following the 10 steps shown in the instructions to make the box itself and the lid.
How to activate your edding gloss paint marker: Shake the marker vigorously with the cap on. Place the nib on a piece of scrap paper. Carefully press down on the nib and pump it up and down several times until ink appears. Ensure the ink starts to flow by drawing a couple of lines on the paper. Replace the cap after use.
