- Trim A4 cardstock to 5 3/4″ x 11″
- On long side score at 3″, 5″, 8″ and 10″
- Turn and score at 2″
- Cut to the 2″ score line and cut a small wedge off each piece so when folded it is easy and neat.
- On one of the wider panels, trim back to 3/4″. Fold this up and then punch your shape into that panel. The punch should reach beyond the bit that is folded up, so you are only punching 1 thickness of card. Make sure you try and centre it in the panel.
- Use the Scallop Trim Border punch and punch along the top edge of the box. Trim the scallops off the smallest section. Use a sponge dauber and dip it in some of the Platinum Shimmer Paint and dab the paint over the scallop edge. Use post-it notes to mask/give you a defined edge. Wait for it to dry and do the other side. (I didn’t do that but will later as I think it will make the finished project look much better.
- Adhere the Vellum to the inside of the box and position it equally over the ornament punch – ise Snail adhesive.
- Using the sponge dauber and the platinum shimmer paint ink up your stamps from Delightful Decorations and stamp onto the left over Cherry cobbler you have. You will need 2 large and 4 small. Punch the shapes with the circle punch so that your have 2 x 1″ and 4 x 3/4″ images punched out. Place dimensionals on the back of each and arrange as desired. Place rhinestones in the centre of each shape. I used larger rhinestones in the larger images and smaller ones in the smaller images.
- Use red sticky strip to fold up the bottom edges to make your box. I fold mine up without tape first and mark with white pencil which edges need tape. I then apply the tape and stick it all together.
Your project is now complete. Other ideas to make this project WOW:
- While the Shimmer Paint is still wet, you could add glitter or embossing powder and heat set
- Before putting it all together, put your card through your Big Shot and your favourite textured impressions folder
- You could also stamp on the Vellum using one of the Shimmer Paints
- Decorate each side.
- Use a different stamp set
- Use flowers dyed with your favourite re-inker, chalk etc.
I hope you like this project. It is quick and easy and quite effective. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you’ll pop back again soon.
On Saturday (Aussie time) I will be participating in a Blog Hop to celebrate the 2011 – 2012 Idea Book and Catalogue. The hop is being hosted by ESAD (Extra Special Australiasian Demonstrators) and there will be Blog Candy. What better reason to pop back then, but to be in the draw for some blog candy.
