Heart & Vine Gifting Wallet die set
Step 1: Use the Heart & Vine Gifting Wallet die set to cut the above piece from white card. Cut 4 of these.
Step 2: Trim the scallop edge off of 3 pieces, and trim the small flap off the fourth (leave the scallop edge on this piece).
Step 3: Add hi-tack tape to the flap edge on the 3 pieces without the scallop edge.
Step 4: Affix all 4 pieces together to create one long piece
Step 5: Cut 3 pieces of card measuring 17cm square. Score each piece 3cm each side.
Step 6: Fold along scorelines. Cut tabs in each corner as shown above and add hi-tack tape to the areas shown. Affix together to make a box. Repeat for other 2 pieces.
Step 7: You will now have 3 boxes as shown
Step 8: To create the lid for the box cut white card to 17.5cm square. Score all sides at 2cm. Fold along scorelines, cut tabs in the corners as you did creating the previous boxes, and use hi-tack tape to affix together.
Step 9: Cut card for decorating inside and outside box. Yellow panels measure 12cm square, and embossed white card is 11.5cm square.
Step 10: Attach to the long panel as shown above
Step 11: Cut card to line base and edges of boxes which will sit inside main box. Yellow base panels measure 10.5cm square and white embossed base panels measure 9.5cm square. Yellow side panels measure 2.5cmx10.5cm, white embossed base panels measure 2cmx10cm. (You will need 4 side panels for inside box and only 3 for outside as one side of box will not be seen as it will be affixed to main frame.
Step 12: Use glue or hi-tack tape to attach boxes as shown above.
Step 13: To decorate lid cut yellow card to 12.8cm square and white embossed card to 12.3cm square and affix to top of lid. To decorate lid sides cut yellow card to 1.5cmx12.8cm, and white embossed card to 1cmx12.3cm. You'll need 4 pieces of each colour. Die cut the beautiful flourish from yellow card and affix to the scallop edge with glue.
Step 14: Stamp basket and eggs using Memento ink, colour with gem pens and affix gems with glue. Affix to box with foam tape.
Step 15: Finished box shown open. I recommend not putting anything too heavy in the boxes as in time they could detach from the main frame.
