Instructions: Click here to view more photos of this project. To create box first cut a hexagon base and 6 side panels from white cardstock using Gift box die. Glue all pieces and create a box. Cut 6 pieces of designer paper measuring 2” × 2” and glue them on box. Fold the upper panel outside and glue them as shown. Cut flap from designer paper and adhere them. Cut some Hearts from luxe gold cardstock and heart frames from white cardstock. Glue them on flaps as buttons.

For lid cut 1 hexagon base piece from white cardstock using die. Cut 6 pieces of side panels and trim them. To create the side pieces mentioned, cut white cardstock 2" x 12". Score the length of the paper 1/2" on the left side and then also on the right side. Next, score it widthwise at 1/2", 2.75", 5", 7.25", 9.5", 11 3/4", and fold at score lines. Use scissors to cut notches by fold to allow paper nice folds. This will create 5 of the 6 hexagon side panels. Create one more side panel similar to this for the 6th side.  Adhere onto hexagon base to create lid. Once all the sides have been securely fastened, fold remaining finishing flap on inside of card base for finished look. Cut designer paper according to the size and mat on lid. Take a thin gold cardstock strip and glue in the middle of lid’s side panels. Again, fussy cut a small hexagon and create side panels similar to the larger one to create a small lid. Glue it on the main lid. Cut some Hearts from gold cardstock and glue them on lid as shown. Glue heart cut out on the small lid to create knob. Glue some flat back pearls on lid.
