Using Dries Clear Glue and a small brush or sponge, add clear glitter
When dry using Dries Clear Glue and Prills, flower centers. (I mixed the Prill colours together to get mixed colour centers)
If you have the Classic Sunflower dies and stamps, use these to make the larger bloom for the front of the box, if not, the smaller ones are fine.
HOW TO MAKE THE BOX
The card measures 9 x 4 inches
The box is slightly larger to accomodate the card
You will need two A4 sheets of white cardstock and paper from the paper pad
Cut the lid to 6 3/4 x 11 3/4
Cut the base to 6 1/2 x 11 1/2
Score at 1 inch on all four sides on both pieces, fold and burnish all sides
Cut tabs on opposite sides of the box on both pieces
Nip out a tiny edge on each section of each tab with scissors
Add glue to the front of the tab, bring base up and glue together
Glue all four tabs down and hold the corners together with clips until dry
Line the base of the box with pretty paper
Adhere another paper to the lid,leaving a small gap around edges
Decorate lid with a flower and leaves
