2. Next, apply a shimmery champagne eyeshadow from the inner corner to the middle of the lid.

3. Create a pop of color by applying a vibrant coral shadow to the outer corner.

4. Concentrating on the outer half of the lid, carefully blend a violet eyeshadow along the crease and lower lash line.

5. Using a precision brush, create a small cat eye on the upper lash line using black cream eyeliner.

Directions:

1. Using the X-Acto knife, carefully cut the top of the paper mache letter off. Remove the cardboard filling so the letter is empty.

2. In a well-ventilated area apply 2-3 coats of spray paint to the interior and exterior of the paper mache letter, letting each coat dry approximately one hour.

3. Once the paint is dry, remove the flowers from their stems and cut any remaining stem pieces so the bottom of the flowers are flat.

4. Apply a small glob of glue on the bottom of a flower and  place the flower in the paper mache letter. Press and hold the flower down for 15-20 seconds to let the hot glue cool slightly. Repeat this step until your letter is filled with flowers!

5. If you have empty spaces in your letter, you can fill them using individual petals, smaller flowers, or the leaves on the stems of the flowers. Just place them where you would like and apply small globs of hot glue to hold them in place.

6. Let all of your hot glue dry completely and voila!
