Step-by-step instructions:

To create the box

 

  1. Cut a piece of patterned paper down to 8” x 8”. Score at 2 ¼” on all 4 sides using the box base side of your scoreboard. Trim into all 4 corners where the scorelines cross to remove a section to make the tabs smaller and easier to fold. 



  2. Score at 2 ¼” on the box lid side on all 4 sides of an 8” x 8” piece of acetate. Trim into all 4 corners where the scorelines cross to remove a section.


  3.  Apply red-liner tape to the tabs of both the box lid and box base and construct both pieces to create a box with an acetate lid.


To create the card

  2. Mat a 5 ¼” x 6 ¾” piece of patterned paper onto a 5 ½” x 7” piece of blue linen cardstock. Glue to the card base.



  3. Die-cut the Hidden Within The Sea die from Multi-Purpose and blue linen cardstock. ink the edges of the blue piece and then drop shadow the white piece underneath. Mat onto a 3 ¾” x 5 ¼” piece of patterned paper and then onto a 4” x 5 ½” blue linen cardstock. Use foam tape to adhere to the centre of the card base.



  4. Stamp your chosen sentiment onto Multi-Purpose cardstock. Ink the edges and mat onto a piece of blue linen cardstock. Use foam pads to adhere to the card base.
