Cut 12-inch x 1-inch strips of paper for the top edge of box. Spritz with water, apply Mod Podge and adhere to box as shown.
Apply several coats of Mod Podge to entire box, letting dry between coats.
Cut a 12-inch piece of paper, fold in half and half again. (Note: this is the template for placing screw eyes in side of box.) Lay at opposite sided of box and mark 3 places for the screws. Repeat on opposite side. Screw eye screws in place.
Use jewelry pliers to attach a jump ring and lobster claw to one end of chain. Measure distance to opposite side of box with chain, add another jump ring and lobster claw. Cut link in chain to disconnect from roll of chain. The length of chain may need to be adjusted so that it is taught across the box.
Add clear gems to box as desired.
Tear 3 different sizes of circles for flowers. Use distress ink to antique edges. Layer to form flowers. Repeat for all four corners as shown.
Follow directions on brad maker and make small brad to hold each flower together and glue to each corner of box to finish (or use a ready made brad or stone for center of flowers).
