“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!

Directions: 

Step 1: Using the Royal Elegance Frames Die set cut the following pieces, these will make the top and base of the box.

♥  Using white card die cut using the outer die from the set of dies x 2

♥ Using paper from the Floral Shoppe paper pad, die cut 2 of the large decorative die.

♥ Adhere the paper die cuts on top of the white card die cuts.

Step 2: Create the lid and base of the box.

For the lid of the box cut a piece of white card 7" x 9" and score on all sides at 1 3/4" 

    Cut into the corner of the scored card to create tabs and fold along all score lines. 

    Adhere the sides to create the lid of the box.

♥ For the base of the box cut a piece of white card 6 14/16" x 8 14/16" and score on all sides at 1 3/4"

    Cut into the corner of the scored card to create tabs and fold along all score lines. 

    Adhere the sides to create the base of the box.

Using a contrasting paper to that used on the box lid and base cut two 12" strips 1 3/4" wide.

Adhere one strip to a long and short side of the box, trimming off any excess.

TOP TIP: Fold a small section about 1/4 " of one end of the paper so that it sits on one side of the box

you are not covering with paper. This will create a seamless look when the next strip of paper is added.

Adhere the second strip of paper to the remaining two sides of the box, trimming off any excess.

Step 3: Decorate the sides of the lid of the box.

Using the inner decorative die from the Royal Elegance Frames Die set, die cut two pieces in white card.

Take one die cut and trim the sides as shown in the picture above and adhere to the sides of the box.

Take the other die cut and trim the ends as shown in the picture above and adhere to the ends of the box.

♥ Cut two of the ribbon pieces from the Floral Shoppe Paper Pad.

♥ Cut two strips of the same paper used on the box lid and base, cut it slightly wider than the ribbon paper.

♥ Adhere and layer the papers to the box lid.

Step 4: Adhere the box base on top of the die cuts as shown in the picture above and the die cuts ontop of the box lid.

Step 5: Make a shaker element for the top of your box.

Using the Eyeley Oval Basics Small die, die cut a sentiment from one of the papers in the paper pad.

Using the same oval die, die cut an oval in clear card.

Using white card die cut one of the inner decorative dies that was used on the sides of the box.

Adhere the sentiment to the white diecut.

Using 3D foam adhere the clear card to the sentiment. Make sure to create a sealed line of 3D foam around

   the edge of the die cut and add your shaker elements before adhereing the clear card on top.

Using paper to coordinate with the papers used on the top, base and sides of the box, die cut an oval

   with the same oval dies used earlier. Take that oval and die cut a smaller oval die to create a frame,

   adhere this on top of the shaker element. 

Using a contrasting paper die cut a smaller oval frame using the Oval Basics small die with a large oval die.

   Adhere this on top of the shaker element as in the photo above.

Adhere the shaker element to your box lid with 3D pop dots.

Step 6: Create the decorative florals and leaves for the top of the box.

Using the Floral Shoppe Accents stamp and die create your filler flowers. Stamp using Olive Green ink for

   the leafy sections along with Light House and Seafarer Ranger Archival inks where the flowers are. Die cut

   with coordinating dies. Shade the leafy area in Leaf Green ink and shade the flowers in the same color you

   stamped with and add Crystal Clear powder to create a stunning sprakle on the flowers.

Using the Large Floral Urn stamp and die set, stamp the leaves in Olive Green and shade using Leaf Green ink.

   Die cut with the coordinating dies.

Create a large Sweet Peony flower using the Sweet Peony stamp and die set and Ranger Archival Sunflower

    and Light House inks.

Step 7: Adhere the flowers on the top left corner of your box so that they overlap the shaker element.

Step 8: Place the lid onto the base of the box and adhere pearls around the paper ribbon of the lid for a finishing touch.
