  2. Paint the inside of the box with blue acrylic paint and leave to dry.
  3. Choose a ribbon and then measure and cut where the length will fit round all four sides of the box. Then spread some PVA glue on the back of the ribbon and then place it around the box, holding it firmly till it slightly dries.
