Decoupage back of mushroom top, then place on top of mushroom stem. Decoupage back of bird 2 and place on top of mushroom. Decoupage back of bird 1 and place on top of bird 2. Decoupage back of beak and slide under bird 1. Decoupage back of each letter and place on box lid. For dot on exclamation point, hole punch or cut circle from orange polka dot pattern.

Using Desert Turquoise, paint holes in both letter Es. Add embellishments to each letter using Pink 3D Gloss Enamels. Carefully squeeze small dot on bird for cheek. Use black marker to dot on eye.

Brush Gold Glitz on mushroom stem and let dry. Squeeze small dots of Gold Glitz onto front of lid.
