Some yummies from Lori Whitlock... Box, Gift Card XL die, Embossed Gift Tags & Winged Beauties by Prima. I am also using the super cool Dimensional Cutting Pad which allows you to create a pop-up die cuts! Will show you more of that later.
Now let me walk you through how I did my project.
I folded the scored lined and glued the flaps.
The box is looking good so far, right? :)
Now for the embellishments... I took a beige paper and die cut this detailed butterfly using the the Magnetic Platform, one Standard Cutting Pad, this butterfly Thinlits die by Prima (Winged Beauties) with the cutting side up, my paper then the Dimensional Cutting Pad.
It is the same as the regular cutting pad with a beveled line down the center which shields this area from the die’s blade. When the shape is cut, a hinge keeps the die-cut attached to the material. Bend the cut pieces upward to give instant dimension!
See! The butterfly was beautifully cut but it's still attached to the paper. I just love this invention designed by Tim Holtz!
Now I needed to trim the paper to this Thinlits die from Lori Whitlock's Embossed Tags Die Set.
And to mat that butterfly detail, I die-cut a bigger tag using this tag die from the same set I just mentioned. This glittered cardstock thick but the framelit die cut it so nicely.
I then inked all the die cuts with Ranger Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I layered everything together. Added an eyelet to the tag and tied a jute string to it.
I made a small rose using the 3-D Flowers Bigz die for the center and finished it off with a little pearl.
Inside the box, I made the same butterfly detail to hold the earrings.
What do you think? :)
Instead of an earrings, you can also make a small inspiring note or card. It can also be a precious photograph. The possibilities are endless with this cute box.
I hope this inspires you! Til next time!
