Step by Step
Cover a Nesting Box with patterned paper from the Boofle collection.
Ink the edges with a pink inkpad.
Apply large Boofle buttons around the edge of the box top and infill up to the edge of the box as required with smaller buttons. Add a second row of smaller button inside the first. Use a hot-glue gun to adhere the buttons.
Apply further buttons around the rim of the box.
Add some ribbon bows from the Parkstone Pink collection at regular intervals around the rim.
Die cut the flower shape from green cardstock and emboss using the button embossing folder.
Ink the raised sections and add some highlight detail with a white gel pen.
Adhere centrally on the box with two layers of 3D foam.
Stamp Boofle onto white cardstock using the Kiss Stamping Technique (see the top tip section for this technique). Cut to a circle with a nesting die and add a doodled border.
Add a ribbon bow above and a button to Boofle’s belly button, and glue the panel centrally on the box lid.
