Directions:

Start by cutting down the paint sticks to size. The size will all depend on how big or small your box is. You may cut either by hand or by automatic saw. We used the following sizes:

  • Front & back of box (longest) – 12” x 4
  • Sides of box (shortest) – 3.5” x 4
  • Bottom of box – 11.5” x 2

Next, use a glue gun to glue 1 of the side sticks (3.5”) to the inside edge of one of the front sticks (12”). This will create an L-shape wall.

Repeat previous steps to create a second L-shape wall.

Line both L-shaped walls up reversed and glue both edges of the shortest sides together. This will create a continuous rectangle.

Once the box is completely assembled, apply paint or stain. If opting to stain, be sure to add a layer of Mod Podge as a sealant. Allow for paint/stain to completely dry before proceeding to the next step.

Turn the design face down and apply pressure. Pull the vinyl’s carrier sheet off and away from the transfer tape. This way, the vinyl will be left on the transfer tape.

Center the vinyl design on the front of the box. Apply pressure and smooth over the design using a scraper tool.
