Instructions: This project, finished size will be 16 cm x 21 cm. Make first the box walls by cutting 2 strips 14.5 cm and 2 strips 19 cm in the length from the A4 cardstock. Score the fold lines every 3cm. Fold to make the mountain and valley folds. Trim off any excess card. Slot the corners into each other to form a rectangle box wall. Adhere the corner tops together so the box will stay together. Ink the fold edges with the Forest moss ink. To make the folder, cut 21 cm for the length x 16 cm plus 16 cm plus the spine. The spine is worked out from the height of the box wall once adhered together plus the height of your flowers sitting on top of the box wall. When you see the project you will understand this. You will need to make a join in the folder. Do this so the join falls under the design paper and box walls.
Make a lace paper border strip from the paper pad and the border dies. Trim to fit the top of the box then, adhere. For the outside and inside of the folder, cut the chosen paper from the pad 0.4cm smaller than the folder measurement, distress with the distressing tool and adhere in place. Now you can adhere the box in it's place.
Make the bows, flowers, swirls and sentiments. Arrange the placement and adhere in place. Cut the ribbon ties extra long so the bow will be royal, adhere with the hot glue gun under the flowers to secure for tying. Add stickles to the flowers to give your project a finished look.
