Arrange the top and sides of your box lid in a graphics program such as CorelDraw 8 LE. Then print the design on glossy photo paper, cut it out, and glue it to your box. To protect the surface and give the box a sheen, lightly brush varnish over the top and sides. –Artist: Kelly Lunsford
For your box designs, you’ll need a graphics program that can position text upside down, decorative fonts, and a color ink-jet printer. Also collect a ruler, small boxes, photo-quality ink-jet paper, and spray glue.
