Give a plain set of storage cubes a lift with fun flag designs.
Paint fun flag designs
Step 2: Photocopy or print off larger images of the flags you chose to use as a reference. Use the side of the cloth box without a handle or hole. Then use the pencil and ruler to make your painting guides, altering the images to fit a square as necessary. If you are using a flag with a circle, for example the Palau flag, centre a bowl on the box and draw round it.
Step 3: Start painting. We used Resene Bright Spark (yellow) and Resene Sports Star (blue) for Palau; Resene Kermit (green) and Resene Rocket (red) for Italy; Resene Rocket (red) for Switzerland; and Resene Rocket (red) and Resene Surfs Up (dark blue) for the United Kingdom. Use the small brush to do the outlines then fill in with the larger brush. Let one colour dry completely before starting the next. When they are all dry, pop them inside the frame!
