Instructions: This project measures the size of the gift in a box you have. This project is wrapping a gift without the wrapping, you are decorating the box of the gift. This box is an empty perfume box I had but you can use whatever you have or want to give.
To make the flowers and leaves: Taking the white card stock and the library green ink, stamp the leaves and two of each of the two wild rose from the large Wild Rose set, color these with the Pink Peony and the centers with the Venetian Orange. The outside is highlighted with concentrated Plum. Diecut with the coordinating dies. Two layers of two sizes are used to make the flowers. The centers are filled with clear drying glue then diamond dust is sprinkled over the glue. The yellow from the inked centers will show through once the glue has dried. Set aside to dry. The leaves are colored using the Leaf green and Library green inks. The large flower shaping mold is used to bring shape to the leaves and flower petals.
To decorate the box: Taking the box, measure the box on all sides. The lid and base, the sides and front and back. Write the measurements down then make them all a little smaller so you have the box showing on the sides of the design paper. For this box I chose the design paper with a flower border from the Wild Rose paper collection. Cut the paper to the measurements so the border will be at the foot of the box. The edges are inked with the Archival Plum ink. Adhere the paper pieces to the box using double sided tape. Taking the green organza ribbon, wrap around the box and adhere with the hot glue gun. Make a organza ribbon 1/2 bow by folding the ribbon three times, each fold a little shorter than each other. Adhere with a dot of hot glue. Make two 1/2 ribbon bows. Assemble the flowers and leaves. Arrange on the ribbon line around the box, the flowers and leaves, adhere this with the hot glue gun. To finish the project adhere the 1/2 bows to each side of the flower arrangement as shown.
