  2. Use a sponge brush to paint round wooden boxes. Let dry.

  3. Download the labels and print onto plain paper or tea-dyed paper (directions in step 4) for an aged effect; cut out. Glue to box tops with glue stick.

  4. Tea dyeing: If desired, take this extra step to make these labels look authentically old: Brew strong black tea; let cool. Pour it into a plastic bin. Soak uncoated 8 1/2-by-11-inch paper in the tea for 1 to 2 hours. Remove it, and let dry completely on paper towels. Print directly onto the dyed paper.
