What You Will Need

  • Tan card stock
  • Ten Commandments Tablets Template (See Downloads below).

  • 2 foil pipe cleaners
  • Aluminum foil
  • Scissors

Directions

  • Cut out Ten Commandments Tablets

  • Center on lid and glue down.
  • Cut a piece of foil approximately 1-1/2" larger than the box lid.
  • Cover lid with aluminum foil, shiny side up. Place fingers inside the cross and press foil down and smooth out. Run fingers around outside of pipe cleaners to smooth down foil. Slowly work way to edge of lid smoothing out all the foil. Wrap the foil around the lid edges. Smooth edges as much as possible so that the lid will fit back on the box.
