A Clear Gift Box
Posted by _Curlywurly_, 12 Feb, 2013
Be inspired by Creativity TV but put your own spin on things. Debbi has used acetate to create a clear box using Papermania Capsule and Xcut nesting dies.
Repeat the process again with an A4 sheet of acetate, but this time make the intervals 6.3cm
Stick the same way as Jo has shown on the video with both scored white cards. You now have the top and bottom of the box.
Take the scored acetate and stick the flaps as Jo did, but only put a small piece of sticky at the top and bottom of the single long flap, as this will be hidden.
Take the (white card) bottom half of the b ox, place some tape on the base (inside). Now take the acetate box and place inside and press down to stick.
Place some tap on two sides, at the top of the acetate box them place the (white card) top of the box over the top of the acetate box and press the sides to stick
Cut six rectangles of pink card 6x2cm, then cut six rectangles of patterned paper 5x1cm. Matt and layer them together.
Adhere the two larger matt and layered rectangles to both sides at the top of the box.
Take four of the smaller matt and layered rectangles and adhere to all four sides of the base. Take the two remaining rectangles and adhere to the two sides at the top of the box.
Cut, using the fourth largest scallop circle die and cut one scallop circle from the pink card.
Making the flower - Using the smallest scallop circle die and cut five circles from the patterned paper.
Take each layer, one at a time, and scrunch towards the middle. Once all layers are done, slightly feather out the layers
Using the smallest scallop circle die again and cut one more circle from the patterned paper and adhere this to the pink card scallop circle. The stick the flower on to the top of this.
Now take the scored white card and cut from the top at 12cm. Now take the larger of the two and cut off at 10cm from the top. You now have two pieces.
Cut two rectangles of pink card 9x6cm, and two pieces of patterned paper 8x5 cm. Matt and layer them together.
Pile the five circles on top of each other, and using a pokey tool poke a hole through all the layers. Thread a brad through the hole and secure at the back.
Take some white card then and do as Jo has done on episode 146
Adhere this finished item to the front of the box, over lapping the card and the acetate.
Punch two holes at the top of the box and thread twine to close the top of the box and tie a bow.
