Hi craft friends

Gifting is a wonderful way to express happiness, bless and show gratitude. If the gifts are, specially wrapped or presented in unique manner, not only it increases the value of the gift but also conveys your efforts to the receiver of the gift. 

Hence I like to give gifts beautifully and there is no better way than to create a beautiful box using dies from Amazing Paper Grace. 

I am so thankful to Becca for giving me these dies. 

Today I am showcasing an ebony and ivory half circle box decorated with the ornate dies and flowers Becca Feeken. 

You can check her dies here. 

Here are the pictures of the finished box followed by a step by step instructions and photos to make this box. 

Step by Step Photo Instruction

Cut black card stock 8 " x 12 " and make a score line
 at 2 1/2 inches on the short side.
Turn the paper and place the Grand Pocket die with 
the stitched line a little below the scored line. 
Make an outline drawing of the die piece. 
Place the die in opposite direction and extend 
the drawing to get a shape like above.

Emboss the die piece front and back on grey card stock using the Spellbinders die cutting 
machine and the embossing plates and cut along the edge with
scissors. Make two such pieces.
Also cut out the black piece from previous step.

Cut two pieces of die cut with the centre attached by placing the die on the 
front and back of card stock.

From the grand pocket die, cut 4 pieces of die cut from grey card stock and 8 pieces from white card stock. Align them offsetting a little to get two pieces like this. 
Trim the base by 1/2 inch.

Cut out border die cuts from grey and white card stock 
and align them together and adhere.

Using an oval piece as reference cut out the inner and top and base layer.

Adhere the die cut pieces and the oval layer without flap on the top.

Cut one piece of black card stock strip 12" by 2 1/2" (A)
One strip 12" by 3 " (B)
One black pattern paper strip 12" by 2 1/2". (C)
Adhere the A strip on B strip leaving a half inch gap at the base .
Cut this gap as zig zag as shown. 
Adhere piece C on the front.

Adhere the whole piece along the oval edge at the base , turning the strip as we 
move to the other end. Adhere the inner oval piece inside the base to cover the cut edges.

Cut two oval die cut  in white card stock from Picot Petite ovals die
and one piece in black card stock from the mat ovals die from the same set.

Add a piece of oval vellum at the back and add double sided tape as shown above.

Assemble the oval piece on the top.

Cut out flower and leaf die cuts from flower shaping paper 
with the Cinch and Go flower dies
 and colour with distress inks.

Shape the flowers with ball tool and foam pad and adhere the layers together.
Add stamens in the centre.

Close up view of arrangement.

Hi Girls! Finally I,ve managed to post a tutorial on punch craft Roses. All of you have been waiting for this and I hope this helps cos, I,m bad at taking Pics. So in the process if you do not understand anything, kindly drop me a mail so that I can assist you.

1. Things Required: A foam pad/soft leather pad, punches-punch bunch-scalloped heart(medium), birch leaf and daisy, fevicol, silicon glue, tweezer, craft paper, toothpick, embossing tool. pink ink pad and some sponge.(I hope I,ve covered all)

2. Punch out 8+5+3+1 hearts from the white paper and 6 leaves with the birch leaf and 1 daisy from the green paper.

3. Using the sponge, colour the hearts giving it a shaded effect. You can use a single colour also.
4.Then with the toothpick roll the scalloped part on the right to the outside opposite to the shaded side. repeat with the other side. then place the heart shaded side up and with embossing tool make a mark from the middle to the pointed tip at the bottom. Repeat with all the hearts.

5.Except the last 1 heart. Roll it around the toothpick as shown to make the centre. cut a small part from the bottom.
6. Then place the daisy on the pad and give a soft cup shape. Pick one heart with the tweezer and dip the bottom in glue and paste it on one petal of daisy. Continue till you use the 8 hearts.
7. Now cut the bottom of the remaining hearts.

8. Cup your palm and hold the rose in it. Then pick the center and dip the end in silicon glue and put in the center of the flower. Silicon glue helps the petals to remain straight but you have to be quick as it dries very fast.
9. Then pick each heart and dip in silicon and continue to build layers around the center offsetting the petals . Cup the rose a little to hold the petals together. Your flower is ready.

10. Now using the stick, make veins on the leaves and twitch it a little to give a little character to the leaves. Cut a thin strip and attach the leaves as shown.

11. Attach the rose in the center of the leaves.

And Now I used this rose on this card.
