Make the pillow box pattern and using the design paper found in the collection, make the box base. Follow the photo instructions shown further in this post http://sussipoppins.blogspot.com/.
Taking the grey card stock make the box front matting. Measuring 5" x 10" (12.5 cm x 25 cm ) Taking the pink design papers cut the same only a little smaller. Distress the edges and adhere to the box front.
Prepare all the embellishments; Stamp and diecut in black ink onto white cardstock the 15 small roses and 4 buds (the roses and buds when completed, apply gesso to them to soften the colour. This can be done before or after adhering to the gift box front. Take into account drying time.), 4 leaf vines in Iced Spruce ink, 2 lace Medallions in grey card stock and 2 in the white card stock. A Botanic Arch from the white card stock, cut a few paper ribbon ends from the pink and natural design paper. Stamp 2 small hearts using the Sapp green ink and colour with the distress inks. Shape images using the Deluxe flower shaping kit.
Stamp the sentiment then fussy cut it out. Fussy cut the rose image from the design paper. Stamp the bride and groom and the wedding rings image, in black ink and colour with the distress inks. Using black ink stamp, die cut and color the wedding bells border. Start the decorating by first adhering the medallions, botanic arch, ribbon banners and wedding bell border, trimming as you go. Adhere the fussy cut roses. Arrange the leaf vines at the foot and to the left of the arch. Arrange and adhere the roses. Place the heart over the roses. Use the hot glue gun to secure. The sentiment is adhered with foam tape and wet glue over the heart. Yes you will lose a few roses but you need them to support the heart and sentiment. You will see a little of them between the cuts. Cut a heart in half and slip it under the arch as seen in the photo. Make a few extra cuts of the bride and groom image and layer under the stamped bride and groom image to make a 3D chipboard embellishment. Adhere this to the foot of the botanic arch. Stamp, diecut and colour the wedding rings then adhere them in place. Once all is dry and secure apply stickles to finish the decorating. The box will not be so rounded at the front so take this into account when first closing the box.
