Using the Create-a-Card die:

Step 1: Place the die in the centre of the lid and secure in place with low tack tape. Run through your cutting machine to cut and then repeat using the embossing mat to emboss the design.

Step 2: Decorate your design as you wish, I have used a small amount of gold gilding wax on mine.

 

Create the Box:

Step 1: Cut, assemble and glue your lid and base. Cut and emboss a 16.5cm square piece of card and adhere onto the cut design to add a background.

Step 2: Assemble your box base. I use Collall All-Purpose Glue.

Step 1: Cut A3 card stock to 17cm x 37cm.

Decorating the Base:

Step 1: Cut 4 x 16.5cm squares from Kraft cardstock and emboss. I have used the Softly Falling folder from the Vintage Christmas collection.

Step 2: Ink the edges of each piece to highlight the embossed design. If you would like to tie the box together you can add ribbon to the front and back panels. Adhere all 4 panels to your card base.

Step 3: Cut 2 strips of embossed card measuring 2.5cm x 16.5cm, lightly ink and adhere to the centre of the card base on both sides.
