Instructions: Cut a piece of white tissue paper larger than the box cover you will be covering. Starting at the edge of the tissue paper begin stamping the chosen image (I have used the swirl fuchsia image from the Fuchsia Clusters Cling Stamp Set) onto the tissue paper with white ink. Once you have stamped the image, cover with white embossing powder, shake off and then heat emboss. Repeat this step until you have your pattern completely covering the tissue paper. Next, crumple tissue paper into a ball. Straighten out slightly, however do not smooth out wrinkles. Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the top of the box cover and adhere the patterned tissue paper over top making sure to have enough overhang to cover the outer and inner edges. Next adhere Mod Podge to the longest sides of the box and adhere tissue paper. For the shorter edges of the box, apply Mod Podge to the sides and fold tissue paper edges as though you were gift wrapping a present. Trim overhang tissue paper to be close to the same size as possible all around the box for as clean a look as possible for the inner edges of the box. Apply Mod Podge to each edge and fold tissue paper inside. Measure the dimensions of your gift box and cut a small white piece of cardstock slightly smaller than the measurement. Adhere this piece of card stock to the inside top of the box to hide any messy mechanics that may have happened during brushing on the Mod Podge. Set aside cover to dry completely.
Next using a manual die cutting machine cut one decorative oval. Using a spray adhesive, apply to top cover of gift box. Die cut two vining floral corners from the Cut Mat Create 2B die and apply one full die cut to one corner and set aside the second die cut to use later. Stamp the Cascading Fuchsia cling stamp set several times and heat emboss with white embossing powder. Die cut using the Cascading Fuchsia die. Using the Deluxe Flower shaping kit along with some water mist, create three roses varying in size. For a tutorial on shaping roses please see here.
Adhere a small piece of tulle to the corner where you have already applied the vining corner. Adhere two roses among the tulle. Going back to the second vining corner die cut, using a scissor, trim into smaller sections. Adhere the third rose to the opposite corner of the floral cluster. Adhere the smaller vining sections around the single rose. Using white ink, stamp the two leaves from the Botanical Rose Cling Stamp Set, and once again heat emboss using white embossing powder. Add leaves to the floral cluster. Lastly, add small pearls to the centre of each intricate design in the decorative oval and larger pearls to each of the flower centres in the vining die cuts. Bring on the wedding season...your presentation is sure to stand out in this beautiful gift box which will be treasured for years.
