Instructions: For the inside box fold card I have used 6" x 6" Black fold -out card. Choose the pattern paper for inside panel of the box. Cut to size and paste it in the box using glue. Highlight the images randomly with glitter. Stamp all the critters using brown archival ink on white cardstock. Paint all the images with Zig Clean Clear Brush markers. Cut all the images with their coordinating dies and add a little glitter. All the trees are stamped using leaf green archival and painted with olive green archival inks and a little touch of Library green and Plum. Leaves are stamped using Library green archival and painted with Leaf green and olive green. On the edges use Plum randomly. Leaves are also embossed using Deluxe Flower shaping kit. Once all the elements are painted and cut, cut 3 pieces of dark green pattern paper with Classic Basic Border Die.
Arrange the pieces inside the box forming peaks and valleys. Cut a long strip of a green strip of card stock and die cut multiple times using Icicles die from Snow Kissed Collection. These are used to give a look of grass to cover the empty spaces between all the critters. Once you decide how to place the elements layer them using foam dots. Glue down the whole box. Now cover all the sides of the box except the back with designer paper from same collection.
For window cut a frame using 2nd and 3rd die of Spellbinder's Grand Label One. Adhere acetate sheet on the back of the frame. Glue few embossed and glittered leaves inside the box on right hand corner. Close the box with window frame using red tacky tape. The ready box measures 7" X 6 3/4" X 1 1/2". For the Outer Jacket of the box you will need 2 pieces of 3 1/2" X 7" (front panels), 1 piece of 7" x 6 3/4" (back) and 1 1/2" X 7" (spine) of black thick chipboard. For hinges you need 7" X 1" strip of black card stock, scored at 1/2". Form a jacket by joining hinges to all the joints using red tacky tape. Cover all the sides with designer paper and decorate the outer of the box with sunflowers, leaves and Pocket and Border die. For coloring and shaping sunflowers, see Emma Lou’s video here. I have also used Grapevine leaves from Italiana Riviera Collection. For closing the box, I have used a brass lock.
