Project Instructions:

Other products:  White, Red and Green Card Stock, Spellbinders Grand Labels Four die, Versamark, Red Geranium Embossing Powder, Memento Dye Ink Pad – Love Letter, Fern Green Embossing Powder, Glimmer Spray, Crystal Clear Glitter and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

To start, cut a piece of white cardstock to 8″ by 4 1/4″ and with the long side on the top edge of your Scor-Pal scor at the 1/2″, 1″, 7″ and 7 1/2″ marks. Next rotate the cardstock and scored at the 1″ mark. Fold and crease along all score lines and with your last scor line to the left of you, removed the top left and bottom left boxes.  Next you will need to relief cut one of the scor lines on the next 2 scored boxes next to the 2 boxes you just removed so that they make tabs to attach to the sides.   It does not matter which scor line you relief cut since the tab will be hidden and set this piece aside while you make the back/top section. Now cut another piece of white cardstock 10″ by 6″ and with the long edge at the top of your Scor-Pal scor at the 3 3/4″, 4 1/2″ and 9″ marks. To get the nice decorative edge slid the cardstock into the largest of the Grand Labels Four die and die cut only to the 3 3/4″ scor line. Finally, assemble the two pieces together by adhering the two bottom sections, overlapping the back bottom over the front bottom. I used a magnet to hold the flap closed but this part is optional.  Once your wrapper is assembled, cover with paper from the Camelia Carnation Paper Collection for that finishing touch!  The Carnation flowers were stamped on white card stock using Versamark and heat embossed with Red Geranium embossing powder and die cut with the matching dies before distressing with Love Letter ink and shaping with the 3D Floral Basics Shaping Mold and the flower shaping tools.  The leaves were stamped on white card stock using Olive Grove ink and die cut with the matching dies before distressing with Bamboo Leaves and shaping with the flower shaping tools.  The sentiment was stamped on white card stock using Versamark and heat embossed with Fern Green embossing powder before die cutting with the Eyelet Oval & Basics Large Die and distressing around the edges with Bamboo Leaves and lightly spritzing with Glimmer Mist and dusting with Crystal Clear Glitter.

Have a wonderful day!  Hope to see you very soon.

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.

    Hi, I was interested in making your wrapper but for the life of me I can’t put the box together. Could you post photo details. Does the first piece that you cut and scored need tabs cutting.

    • Hi Katrina,

      I just reviewed my instructions and yes you are right, I missed a step. After you finish all your scoring with your last scor line to the left of you I removed the top left and bottom left boxes and relief cut the next 2 boxes so that they make tabs to attach to the sides. I will update the instructions on the blog and sorry for any confusion.
