Instructions: Make the flowers: Stamp the Arianna blooms onto the Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using Merry merlot ink. Colour the centre of the flower with bright sunshine cosmic shimmer and blend the melon mambo ink into the outer part of the petals. Die cut the blooms and edge the petals with melon mambo ink to darken the tips of the petals. Set aside some of the smaller flowers.

Place the remaining blooms face down into the mold and spritz with water, place the lid on the mold and run through a die cutting machine. Turn the blooms out of the mold and shape further with the groove tools, set aside to dry completely. Make a hole in the centre of the blooms and thread the stamens through - secure with hot glue.

Paint dries clear glue onto the petals with a brush and sprinkle with crystal clear. Allow to dry.

Make the leaves: Stamp the leaves from the Sweet peony stamp set onto the flower shaping paper using mossy meadow ink and colour using granny apple green ink. Die cut the leaves. Shade the leaves using granny apple green, then spritz with water and shape with the flower shaping kit and allow to dry thoroughly.

Stamp the sentiment onto white card using early espresso ink, cover in clear embossing powder, remove excess and heat to set. Die set the sentiment using an eyelet heart. Colour the sentiment using the bright sunshine ink and edge with melon mambo ink.

Select paper from the paper collection and cut 2 pieces of the size to fit the box lid and 1 piece to fit the box base. Glue the 2 for the lid back to back and then glue a few of the unshaped flowers to the piece which will show through the acetate window. Glue the paper into the box lid.

Glue the 3rd piece of paper from the collection into the base of the box.

Position the sentiment onto the box lid using foam pads and add 3 leaves and a flower to the sentiment using hot glue.

Create a bow with the organza ribbon and hot glue to the box. Add the leaves and flowers into position using hot glue.
