Off the Page with Martha!

Happy Tuesday dear friends! Martha Lucia here with a quick and delicate idea to share with you. Today's project is a gift box that I made using Celebrate 700, one of the papers from Celebrate Collection that you will love.


To create the box you simply:

  • Start with a piece of paper measuring 12" x 8".
  • Make score lines on the long side at 1", 4-1/2, 6-1/2" and 10". 
  • Then make a score line on the short side at 2" (for the bottom) and 1-1/2" (for the upper border). 
  • Mark your score lines with the bone folder and assemble the box. 
  • Before decorating my box I gave it a touch of color over all the border using PowerPuff Razz-Berry Chalk Ink. And after this I put aside my box for a while. 
  • The flowers that I used are two flowers that come with the Unique Rustic Patina Metal Embellishment Kit. Originally they are silver, but I decided to paint them with white acrylic paint to make them more delicate. 
  • I pasted the two flowers and decorated the center with a Doubleclick Skittle. Behind the flower I made a bow with ribbon and black hemp twine.


The next step was the sentiment or message. I used a Hello Die Cut Word to create this, but to give more dimension to this, I cut it three times in different colors.


Finally I pasted all the details over my box using glue dots, silicone and liquid glue. I created a little distress over the ribbon and took these photos especially for you!
