The finished size of this box is 4.44” x 3.30” (11.3cm x 8.4cm). The smaller sized shadow box is used for this project. Taking the paper pad for this collection, find the print with the bricks on it. Cut this to fit all the sides, inside, front and back cover of the shadow box base. Taking the cut-mate-create die set, find the cutting die to fit the hole in the box. 2.5” x 3.5” Using the die cut the hole into the printed-paper so it will match the hole in the precut shadow box. Apply the walnut stain ink to all the edges of the box. Cut from the clear card stock to fit the box inside front. Adhere the clear card stock in place to close the hole in the box. Apply a little clear drying glue with the aid of a sponge to the edge of the box front and clear card stock. Sprinkle the glitter and leave to dry. Taking the printed-paper cut the box wrapper to fit the box. Ink the edges with the walnut stain ink Cut a matting from the pink card stock, ink the edges with the walnut stain ink. Adhere to the box wrapper with the 3d foam tape. Use the printed-paper cut from the box hole to mat the pink card stock. Before adhering in place, ink the edges. To make the flowers.: Taking the stamps and dies for the Sweet Peony’s, stamp using the Archival inks and white card-stock. Bring color to the stamped flower petals and leaves with the 3d stamping inks. This will give a beautiful metallic sheen to your flowers. Taking the crop-a-dile, make a small hole in the center of each petal. Using the flower shaping molds bring shape to the petals. Both the rose and basic flower-shaping molds were used for the peonies. The yellow stamens are used for the peony centers. Thread the stamens through the wholes as you stack the flower petal layers. See the video to see how this is done. Used the clear drying glue to apply the glitter to the flower petals then put aside to dry. For the lilacs they are stamped colored then die cut. Spritz with water then using the lilac flower mold to bring the shape to the petal. This saves so much time using the flower shaping molds. Make four of the lilac swirls as a base for the flower clusters. By stamping, coloring and die cutting , then trim to fit the corners of both the box and box wrapper. The flowers for the box are not 3d but are layered with beads adhered to the flower centers. Arrange and adhere as seen in the project photo. Do the same for the box wrapper. Adhere the ribbon to the box opening and tie the box closed with a bow.
