Import templates into your print program. Print out a test sheet and check for fit on your box. Make adjustments if needed. Import your desired graphics and decorate. Print 1 top piece and 2 side pieces. Let papers dry 15 minutes. Spray lightly with clear acrylic spray to seal ink. Let dry another 20 minutes. When dry, cut all pieces out.

For the top:
Cut the dotted lines. Fold on all staight lines. Appy a thin coat of Mod Podge to the back of your cut paper. Fit to lid, smoothing out as you apply paper to box. For the edges: Fold the sides under that have the selvage edge first. This will make a nice corner when you fold down the other sides.

For the bottom:
Apply the longer papers first, fold the selvage edge over to make another nice corner. Apply the shorter sides. Smooth all air bubbles out. Let dry for one hour. If using a box with a scalloped edge, carefully trim off excess paper.

Lightly spray dried top and bottom with a coat of clear acrylic spray. Two light coats should give you a nice finish. Let the box dry for two or more hours.

Now you are ready to apply your choice of embellishments!

Fill with Hershey's chocolate Hugs and Kisses for a nice Valentine gift!
