Coconut & Sea Breeze Kaisercraft mini paper blooms

Lawn Fawn Lawn Cuts Scripty Love die

Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circles Large dies

manual die-cutting machine

flat-backed pearls

3D foam pads

Step by step

1 Cut a 9” square of white cardstock; score and fold at 3” and 6” on each side to create nine small squares. Cut away the four outer corners so that you are left with a plus sign shape. Decorate the panels on the inside and outside with 2.75”-square paper panels.

2 Create a lid from a 5.5”-square piece of cardstock, then score and fold at 1.25” and 4.25”. Decorate with patterned paper. Die-cut the ‘Love’ sentiment from kraft cardstock three times and layer onto each other. Attach this to the top of the lid and add pearls.

3 Die cut two circles each of two different sizes from white cardstock. Cut two 1.5cm-wide and 15cm-long strips. Glue each strip around one of the circles, cut off the excess and attach the second circle on top using fast-drying glue. Layer the smaller piece on top of the other.

4 Remove the wire from the paper blooms and secure these to both tiers. Decorate with pearls and a bloom on top.

5 Stamp the sentiment, round the corners and mount onto 3D foam pads on the inside panel.
