  1. Cut two lengths of the feather patterned paper from the ‘With Love’ A5 double-sided paper pack at a 1cm width and adhere around the bottom edge of the lid.

  2. Taking the stripe, score downwards at 7.1cm, turn anti-clockwise 90 degrees and score at 19cm.

  3. Take the scallop circle, which you scored earlier and place double-sided tape underneath each of the flaps. Place and adhere on top of the formed square to form a lid.

  4. Using a the largest X-Cut Nesting Dies - Scalloped Circle cut a circle from a piece of white card and also from the feather patterned paper in the ‘With Love’ A5 double-sided paper pack. Line up and adhere together.

  5. Score four parallel lines, 1.5cm in to form a scored square within the scallop circle.

  6. Cut two stripes of white card 5cm x 15.4cm then score each at 7.2cm and 14.4cm

  7. Stick the two lengths at the smallest tab of the first strip. Then wrap around to form a square and stick the ends together, with the other small tab.

  8. Using the fourth largest X-Cut Nesting Dies - Scalloped heart die and cut four hearts from white card. Then using the smallest X-Cut Nesting Dies - Scalloped heart die and cut four hearts from red card.

  9. Layer the smaller red heat on to the top of the white heart, then adhere these hearts to all four sides of the lid.

  10. Now to make the base. Cut a square from red cards at 7.2cm x 7.2cm

  11. Cut four stripes 8.1cm x 20cm

  12. You will see where the score lines have crossed; a small aquare has been formed in the bottom right-hand corner. Snip this square away on all four stripes. Now you have a tab at the right-hand side and bottom of each strip.

  13. Place each strip, one at a time, into a Universal Tri-Boss Folder (A6) - Heart Attack and emboss.

  14. Place double sided tape on each of the tab, on each strip.

  15. Take the square, you cut earlier and stick the small tabs on the strips to all four sides of the square.

  16. Now stick the longer tabs to the neighbouring strip all around to form the box base.
