Die cut the smallest of the frames, stamp your sentiment and flowers in Stazon, then colour with Watercolor Pencils. Flowers coloured in Gorgeous Grape and the Leaves in Granny Apple Green and Old Olive. Then punch a hole in one end and thread Baker’s Twine through the hole tying a knot in the ends. Slip the Baker’s Twine in under the lid before adhering the lid in place.

Stamp on Window Sheet with Stazon. When the ink is dry, flip the piece over and colour using Stampin’ Blends. Use a Glue Dot to secure the Stampin’ Blends side to the Sparkle Glimmer Paper. Then use your Paper Snips to cut the Window Sheet and Sparkle Glimmer Paper out together.

Die cut some of the leaf type elements using the Framelits. Cut some in the Glimmer paper and some in another coloured card. Adhere these elements to the base of the flower using Glue Dots, Finally, add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the flower element ready to adhere to the lid.
