Directions for lid:

  1. Run Cardstock through Big Shot using the Top Note Die

  3. Cut all 4 corners in to score line like you did for the box bottom—gently fold on scored lines

  5. Using the width of the ribbon as a guide, cut a slit with craft blade at each end of box top (on fold). Fold in all corners and secure with sticky strip.

  7. Get ready for this great technique. Take your empty spray bottle (stampin’ mist size) and fill ½ full with rubbing alchohol. Add ¾ tsp. of shimmer paint. I used frost Whtie but Champagne Mist gives a marvelous glitzy look too! Shake well and spritz on lid of box. Set aside to dry before tying the ribbon. Tip: If you use 99% alcohol, it won’t last for an extended period of time.
  8. Stamp scalloped image in Real Red and old olive ink on whisper white cardstock.
  9. Punch stamped images with circle and scallop punch and layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Adhere button and attach library clip.
