  • acrylic paint in red, white, and blue
  • foam stamps (star, and the letters U, S and A)
  • large scruffy paint brush

What You Do:

Paint entire box and lid with one coat of white paint, let dry completely. using scruffy brush, pick up some red paint and brush off excess onto paper towel.

Lightly brush the red paint in long strokes across the outside of the box. Paint will (and should) look streaky.

Repeat this same process with blue paint on the lid. Some areas will be darker than others, you can rub the edges with the brush a little harder to add definition if you like.

Use the letter stamps and paint them with white paint, then stamp “USA” on the front of the box.
