This kit has been sitting around just waiting for me to start it. A Stitcher's Heart.
I decided to put the paper inside the box. I had a few goofs that I wanted to let you know about. First, I read the instructions. I didn't say I followed the instructions but I did read them. I didn't have the spray to seal the box so I didn't. I bought some Mod Podge but discovered I had some already. I used the old Mod Podge. I cut out the two papers to fit the box.
I put the Mod Podge on the sides of the box and stuck the first paper on. But by the time I stuck it on, half of the box had already dried. So I had to be faster at getting the paper on. I tried to push the paper into one of the corners and it tore a little. Oops.
Then I was more generous with the Mod Podge for the second piece of paper. I positioned it (carefully!) but I didn't realize that the paper shrinks a bit in the process. So I had a strip of while showing. ARGH.
What to do about my goofs?
I had some leftover pieces of the paper to cut little strips to put over my goofs so I patched it. I don't think the patches are very noticeable. So my box isn't perfect but I think it looks okay.
I need to paint the outside. The pattern calls for red but I think I'll paint it blue. Maybe I should have painted it first. Too late now. Don't worry, I'll be careful.
The walking is done and the bathrooms are clean. BFF#2 is in town today and we're getting together later, that will be fun.
