mother's day felt-embellished wooden boxes

Hey Mom! We think you’re great! This year, sit down with your favorite small folk and decorate these cute trinket boxes with colorful paint and felt. They’ll love your special time together and you’ll love the happy memories!
Step 1
Project Note: These little wooden boxes come two to a set (just like you and your mini-me). That means they’re perfect for the pair of you to work on together! You can each make your own or gift your colorful creation to each other once you’ve finished.
 
Let’s start by brightening up those boxes! Each of you should pick your favorite color and paint a box. Let the paint dry and then apply another coat or two, if it’s needed. If you like, add a few dots or swirls. Remember, always let your paint dry between coats! 
Step 2
While your paint is drying, measure the top of the larger box. Cut a rectangle of felt that’s the same size. Do the same for the smaller box. 
Step 3
Now it’s time to decorate! Pick out some felt stickers that you like. (We’re particularly fond of those adorable cupcakes!) Peel the backing off each one and stick them onto the felt rectangles. If you like, add a few extra details such as a pom-pom “cherry” to your cupcakes. 
Step 4
ADULT: Flip the first felt rectangle over and add double-sided tape to all four sides. Flip it back over again so that the decorated side is on top and stick it onto its matching box. Repeat to stick the second felt piece to the top of the second box.
