Birthday Gift Box

Hi friends I'm back after a long breakkkkkkk......two months of summer vacation, had fun with family and friends. Now I'm back to blogging , first I'll start with my gift box.

I made a 4" x  5" box with a lid . I had to use two 12 x 12 sheets of brown card (Itsy Bitsy) to make a box of this size.
I made the base with 6" x  6" card , scored 1 " on all sides. Snipped the corners and made it into a box base. Cut a piece of card to 5"x 10" and score 1" ,5" and 9". Stuck around the base starting with the 1" section .Cut another card to 5"x 8" scored at 4" and wrapped it around the the
base to form the sides.
For the Lid I used 61/8 x 61/8 scored 1" on all sides.
Using the DCWV Tradewinds stack cut 4 panels for the sides of the box. Recently I bought Heartfelt Creations Majestic bloom die and
stamp. In one cut I got 12 flowers....colored the flowers with distress inkpad , shaped them using embossing tool and added seed beads to the center. Glittered the edges of the flower. Adhered the flowers and leaves (Elizabeth craft die- Curvy Leaves ) to the lid and to one of the panels.
On another side I used chipboard pocket watch (Itsy Bitsy) colored it with touch marker.And for the other panels I used diecuts from spellbinders Sprightly Sprockets. At last added the sentiments to the box.
