    About This Guide
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hidden throughout many of the levels in Paper Mario: Sticker Star are sticker
    application boxes that allow you to upgrade a sticker. By paperizing in
    certain areas, these applications sites reveal themselves. This guide details
    where these upgrade boxes can be found, and what results different stickers
    can produce.
    
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    How To Upgrade
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The upgrade boxes appear as the red dotted outline of a square.
    Paperize near an appropriae location. Apply a small sized sticker to the
    upgrade square. Medium and Large size stickers will not fit into the square,
    and therefore cannot be upgraded. Hit the resulting item block to reap your
    reward. It is possible to get either one or three stickers with each
    application.
    
    The upgrade blocks will reset every time the level is exited, much like
    stickers, so they can be used repeatedly to upgrade your stickers. The easiest
    place to repeatedly upgrade your stickers is W1.1, since the two blocks are
    relatively close to each other and the entrance.
    
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Where To Upgrade
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The most common place to find such a box is the air above a lone pink flower
    or a circle of pink flowers, although they can appear elsewhere. Many of these
    pink flowers are hidden at first, appearing as cardboard circles on the
    ground. Hitting the ground with the Hammer reveals these hidden flowers.

    The Upgrade List
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This list is grouped by the main sticker types, in alphabetical order. To find
    the results for Shiny Jump, for example, you would look for the Jump heading.
    Each line in the right column notes one possible outcome for applying the type
    of sticker listed in the left column. Results may be 1 or 3 stickers.
