A little floral box....

...for this weeks Creative Expression make.....

I started out by making a small box.  I cut 2 strips of craft card measuring 2.5" x 8.5" and then using a score board I scored at 1/2", 3", 5.5" and 8", you should end up with two strips that have three 2.5" squares with a 1/2" strip[ either end. Glue these together to make a box that has an opening flap top and bottom. Then I stamped and gold embossed five of the new Sunflower Delight designs (didn't put one on the bottom but you could if you wanted) Then I cut them out, edged with a little distress ink and coloured with some cosmic shimmer mica by mixing it with a little water and painting it on. One benefit of embossing the image when using the mica's to paint with is you don't have to be too careful because the embossing will repel the mica.

  Once I'd got them all painted, I simply glued them all in place using a little Cosmic Shimmer glue. Then I stamped various sentiments from the All Occasions set, cut them out and glued them onto each side as well.
