Instructions: Base is 8.5 x 11" folded in half. Cut design paper to fit base. Cut out papers for shadow box and cut a 5x5" panel for inside. Strips are approximately .5 x 5.25" for each end. Adhere box together once all papers are all attached. Using luggage and tag die cut out two tags from collection and ink edges with vintage photo ink, attach brads and adhere this to the back of shadow box.

Stamp with Archival Coffee Ink and cut out with coordinating dies, three sets of lush lilac flowers and all other elements I used. Color with distress inks, shape with the deluxe flower shaping kit and insert stamens into flowers. Attach flowers to the lilac branch, I have one on the outside of the box and one on the inside.

On the note image, I used a water brush to color the image and then a dauber with ink to highlight the edges. Finally detail all flowers with crystal clear and finish assembly.
