    3. With a paintbrush, cover the rest of the box with a thin layer of glue. Carefully lay Japanese paper on top. Lightly dab more glue on top to keep paper from curling up.

    4. Once the entire box is covered, let it dry. Then, decorate with rhinestones to add an extra sparkle in your treasure box. Leave the treasure box for a day to dry completely.
