Project Instructions:

Other Products: Eyelets, Lace, Ranger Distress Inks: Vintage Photo, Staz-On: Jet Black, Ranger Glitter Glue, Foam Dots, Beacon Fast Drying Glue, Pearls, Cardboard

1) Cut out pieces of cardboard to these measurements: 2 pieces of 4’ x 4.5’ 3 pieces of 1’ x 4.5’ 2 pieces of 0.7’ x 3.9’ 2 pieces of 0.7’ x 3.5’

2) Cut out patterned paper to 4.5’ x 11.5 (2 strips)

3) As you proceed to glue the patterned paper to the cardboard, be sure to smooth the per down nicely using a bone folder or credit card to avoid creases as well as to ensure the patterned paper sticks nicely to the cardboard. pa

4) Leave a teeny, tiny gap at each piece of cardboard so it’s easy for you to fold it into shape as you progress.

5) Repeat for the other side of the cardboard too.

6) Embellish the inside of the box with stamping and die cuts.

7) To create the depth of the box, glue the four smaller strips of wrapped cardboard to form a square around the 
centre. Ensure it’s not too close to the closure / fold of the box as you want to be able to close the box nicely when ready for use.

8) Embellish the insides with sentiments, pearls, die cuts and so on.

9) For the cover, embellish with handmade flowers and die cut leaves.

10) Punch four holes at the flaps of the box, insert eyelets and attach lace. This is to keep the box closed. (Alternatively, you may want to use magnets)
