Instructions: You can see a close up view of this box here. To make this unique creation, I started with a box measuring 7.5” (width) x 10.5” (length) and 2.5” (height). Inside the box I created a tray which is fixed on the front side but has a free movement on the back side. I attached this free back side of the tray to the openable top and created a mechanism by which when the box is opened, the tray automatically lifts from the back side creating an inimitable imagery of the card placed inside the tray to pop up.

I covered the box using from the Classic Petunia Collection paper. Attach metal legs and corners to give the box a nice pedestal. Make a banner titled “WONDERFUL DAY”, fussy cut it and pasted it on the top of the box giving it a 3-dimensional look. Made a whole composition around the banner with cheese cloth,  flowers and butterflies – all fussy cut and randomly spread shabby pink embossing enamel. 

The top was then decorated with gorgeous flowers made from Petunia stamp and die-cuts. Stamp, color them with Berrylicious ink and some in fern green ink, diecut and shape. Diecut, color and shape stamen and attach to flower centers. Sprinkle prills and diamond dust on the flowers. Stamp, color the leaves in fern green ink, diecut and shape. Attach flowers and leaves as shown.

For the inside, covered the box inside and the moveable tray with the Classic Petunia Collection paper stack and fussy cut the images. At the inside moveable tray-I had used petunia border from Classic Petunia Bouquet with gold embossing powder. For the inside moveable tray designed a card measuring 4.5” x 7.25” decorated pattern paper. Also made a belly band measures 4.625” x .2” and spine .5” Pasted on the edges and covered the belly band by making another composition with flowers made from Large and Small Petunia flowers die and stamp and tags and pasted the die cut at the edge of the belly band. Inside the card I made 3 tags which can be removed. Tag can be replaced by a gift card or a photograph if required. The tags also have a pocket which can hold a memoir photo or a souvenir letter / message.
