Valentine gift box


I am here with a different project for Craftyscrappers today and its a floral card for Valentine's day. I am using You and me stamp set to make this gift box. This is a beautiful box perfect for giving a secret gift and also for our challenge theme 'LOVE'. 

To make this box, I used a lot of elements here. To start with I used heavy base white card stock to make the box and lid. 

I used pattern paper from The craft studio - Majestic blooms. I also used some burlap, chiplets, handmade flowers, die cuts and distress sprays here. I added some lace on the inside of the box and outside of the box. 

1. To make this gift box, I took a cardstock measuring 8 x 8 inch and and scored at 2 inch on all sides. Made a slit at the conjunction of the scored lines and using strong adhesive I pasted them on the inside to turn it into a box. I made the lid of the box the same way using 7 x 7 inch card stock. 
2. Once I finished the box and lid, I added some pattern paper. Distress them using antique linen distress ink. I added some gemstones and lace to the box. 
3. To decorate the lid, first I added a piece of burlap and added some granular paste and heat set it. I added a piece of chipboard. I cut and added a piece of floral design (from pattern paper) using strong adhesive. I added some distress spray before proceeding to the next step. 
4. For the next step, I added some flowers and leaves using tacky glue. I added some layered die cuts and a sentiment along with the image and some embellishment.
