Hey Friend!

Are you a crafter that loves to get the most of our your dies? The Elegant Centerpiece Dies are not just for card making... Join us and learn the steps to create a stunning gift box that is perfect for any occasion. All you need to do is decide what to put inside!

Our Crafters Say:

“Love, love, love your products! Fast and easy checkout. Thank you!” -Marti C

“Heartfelt stamps produce clean, clear impressions. The matching die sets help simplify card making. But it is the floral shaping which makes each card astounding - family and friends have kept my Heartfelt cards for decades.” -Carol M

Let's get crafting!


Step 1: For Box, take a piece of white cardstock measuring 11 7/8” × 11 7/8”. Score at 3” on all four sides. Cut corners to create tabs, fold score lines, glue tabs and create a box.

For Lid, take a piece of white cardstock measuring 8” × 8”, score at 1” on all four sides. Cut corners to create tabs, fold score lines, glue tabs and create a lid.

Step 2: Cut 2 pieces from white cardstock and 2 pieces from designer paper using the large base from the Simply Elegant Centerpiece Die.

Step 3: Cut all four pieces into half, fold from the center and glue on the corner of the lid.

Step 4: For the top of the lid cut a mat from designer paper measuring 5 6/8” × 5 6/8”, adhere it on the lid.

Cut another mat from designer paper measuring 5 2/8” × 5 2/8”, adhere it on luxe gold cardstock which is 1/8 of an inch bigger on all four sides. Adhere it on the lid using dimensional tape.

Step 5: Cut 3 decorative pieces from designer paper and 3 from Luxe Gold cardstock using the large decorative die from the set. Layer Gold Cardstock die cut and designer die cut together, slightly offset so the gold peeks through. Trim 2 die cuts as shown and adhere them on the corners.Now glue decorative die cut on top as pictured.

Step 6: Cut white cardstock using the small center base die and Luxe Gold cardstock using small decorative die from the set. Fold in half and glue on the lid .

Step 7: Stamp 3 flower petal on deluxe flower shaping paper from Daffodil stamp set using sunflower yellow ink. Cut with a coordinating die and paint with the same ink.

Stamp leaves from Large Floral Urn and Floral Shoppe Fillers on Deluxe flower shaping paper using leaf green and paint with sea grass ink. Cut with coordinating dies.

Step 8: Shape flowers and leaves using a golf tool and ball tool. Pierce the center of flowers and insert Rock Candy Stamens-Small. For 1 flower use 3 layers. Apply Crystal Clear on flowers and leaves using Art Glitter Clear Dries adhesive.

Step 9: Arrange flowers and leaves on the lid of the box using hot melted glue. Tie a double bow using a satin cord and glue it on the box. For a finished look, glue some flat back pearls.
