Instructions: I painted the unfinished pine box white using a foam brush. Let it dry completely. Then you will want to measure the box that you are covering to cut the pieces of patterned paper needed to cover the outside and inside. My Treasure Box was about 5.5" x 5.5" in size. Once my pieces were cut and inked, I adhered them to the box using my Crafty Power Tape. You will want to use a nice strong adhesive of choice when adhering to a project like this. Using the Everyday Heroes die, I cut out one chocolate brown scrolled circle. Using the Tropical Hibiscus Stamps and Die, stamp and cut out one set of the flowers and leaves on white cardstock. Using the Under the Sea Coral Stamps and Dies, stamp and cut out 2 sets of the flowers on white cardstock. Using the circle punch to cut a circle from the light blue patterned paper.
I added colour to the tropical hibiscus flowers using inks and sponges. I added a thin layer of gold dimensional spray to the flowers using a paintbrush. Shape your flowers and then adhere together. I added beads to the middle using my liquid adhesive. Set aside and let dry. I added colour to the leaves also using inks and sponges. I shaped my leaves and then spritzed them with the green dimensional spray. From one of the Coral Flowers, cut out just the blooms. I coloured the images using coloured pencils. Shape your flowers and then add to the full image using 3D foam tape.
I cut out the porthole from one of the patterned papers and adhered to the inside of the box lid. Then added the coral flower and seashells. For the top of the box I used layers of patterned paper, journal blocks, patterned circle and the Everyday Heroes die cut piece. Die cut a tag from the patterned papers using the Luggage and Tags Die and add to box. Create burlap string loops and adhere to the lid using hot glue. Also add your flower, leaves and seashells. I added pearls to the scrolled dies, and the button to the knob on the lid.
