Hello folks !!!!

Happy Saturday !!! Is weekend time and that means the whole weeks tiredness and monotony will be done away with celebrations with friends and family.

I am going to celebrate a friend's birthday who will turn 50 tomorrow. For him, I have created this gift box by altering an old MONT BLANC belt box which was lying with me since a long time.

I used my XYRON gadgets to alter this box to give it a fresh look. Xyron makes crafting  a cakewalk.. Easy andd Fuss Free. This box now looks beautiful with no adhesive marks and thanks to Xyron I could finish it in flat one hour.

So do have look.

Instructions to make this box.

Cut out strips of pattern paper a little smaller than the sides of the lid.
Use a Xyron Mega Runner to adhere the strips on the side.

Add the top cover and the two mat layers with Xyron mega runner.

Add another strip of pattern paper on the sides using Mega runner. 
Pass the ribbons abd laces to be adhered flat on the box through the Xyron Creative Station lite. 5".
Adhere the lace and ribbon as shown.

Add the flowers and bows using hot glue gun.

Make double sided foam adhesive in the creative station and use this to adhere the metal feather and the two tags.

Pass the side metal corners through the creative station and bend then at an angle and adhere on the sides of the Lid. 

Use hot glue gun to add metal corner legs.
