• Kreinik #12 Braid in desired colors (we used 031 Crimson and 007 Pink)
• Kreinik Facets in desired colors (we used Black)
• shallow pan or tray

• Trace the outline of your box top onto the white side of the red linerTreasure Tape. Cut out.
• Remove the white liner and place the tap on the top of your button box.Remove the red liner to expose the sticky part.
• Decorate with any buttons first, placing them randomly or in a particularpattern onto the tape.
• Next, lay the thread in desired places. Lay the Facets around the edgeas a border, then swirl and curl and lay the other colors as desired, pressinginto the tape to adhere the threads.
• Then lay the box in a shallow pan or tray and cover all remaining stickyareas with the Diamond Beadlets.
