Measure the cardboard and cut a piece and scotch tape it where you want the division to go inside the box. Measure the box and the distance you want each black stripe to go over the white and with the scotch tape place it exactly where they would go. Once the entire box is marked with the scotch tape you have to paint it using the thick brush with the white paint and wait for it to dry.

After the paint has dried take the scotch tape off and with the small brush paint the stripes black. Once everything has dried, measure where you want the gold stripes to go trace it with a pencil and a ruler and begin to paint with the gold paint. Let the box dry overnight. Next morning open the box and paint it white inside with two coats.

Let it dry and you’re done!
