This is the seventh project in the “Petal Palette Showcase” which shows you a different project every day for the month of June using only the Petal Palette Stamp Set & Petals & More Thinlits. I would recommend this project for beginners, however an investment in equipment is required, with the equipment this project is extremely simple but so stunning!
The dimensions & equipment used are as follows:
Once made, the dimensions of this box is 2.25″sq wide and 1.5″ deep, but has extra room where the flaps point.
The paper I used was the petal garden design series paper, it has been discontinued, but the new catalogue launch has some fantastically gorgeous DSP’s so you will be spoilt for choice!
The paper comes in sheets of 6″ x 6″ so no need to trim down, its the perfect size to make this box.
Using the envelope punch board, you need to line up the card at 2″ punch and score and 4″ and punch and score across all 4 edges of the paper.
Once you have punched and scored, fold and burnish your score lines, use the trio punch to punch little holes for the ribbon in each of the 4 tabs.
Cut into the triangles along one edge, so that you make flaps to add snail tape to adhere the box together.
Using the big shot, take the intricate rose die, with a piece of calypso coral card stock to match the colours in the paper.
with all of this complete, feed the 1/8″ gold ribbon through the holes of the box, then through one of the holes in the rose you have die cut, pull tight and tie in a bow.
I REALLY HOPE YOU LOVE IT AS MUCH AS I DO!
