Instructions: The finished size of this gift box is 3" X 5 1/2" (7.7 cm x 14.4 cm). Using the yellow card stock, trace and cut out the gift box pattern. (Measurements and a sketch will be shown in the post for this at Adhere together with strong double-sided tape. Taking the Wild honey ink, ink the edges of the box. Apply a little Walnut stain also to the edges. Finding the world map design paper in the Young of Heart paper collection, cut from this paper a little smaller than the box front for a matting layer. Ink the edges with the Wild Honey ink then distress the edges with the paper distressing tool. Adhere to the box front with both double sided tape and glue so it will be very strong.

Taking the white card stock, stamp, die cut the leaf branches x 3, the VW Beetle car and the sentiment sign x 1 base, x 1 sign border round and x 4 the sign centre. Die cut the border x 1. Trim the border to fit the box front. Taking the yellow card-stock stamp and die cut with the matching dies, the flowers. Using the Distress inks bring colour to all the embellishments. Once the lace borders are placed on the box front, place and adhere the string in place so you can tie a bow later to close the box. Adhere the car in the centre of the box front, the Journey sign to the right under side of the car wheel. Adhere the flowers in place then add the leaf branches under the flowers. Adhere the crystal buttons to the flower centres. To finish off the gift box add diamond stickles to the car window, wheels and the leaf tips. Tie the string with a bow.
