· Make sure to cut on the inside of the lines

Once dry, take the Modpodge and coat a layer on top of the soda box: Make sure all clumps are smoothed out

· Allow to dry for 10 min

Step 10:

Repeat step 9 : Do three more coats with a total of 4 coats

Step 11:

Once all 4 coats of ModPodge are dried apply a coat of Modpodge to the backside of the tile, time to lay down the felt.

Step 12:

Once you have a coat of Modpodge, place the felt on to the bottom of the tile and even out the edges
