Patchwork Box - Tulip
Posted by Brenzer, 27 Apr, 2011
Make a perfectly cute trinket or gift box using the Tulip collection.
Mix some tacky glue in a bowl with a few drops of water, coat one of the sides of the box with glue and as you work across the box start to lift papers with paint brush, gluing over papers as you adhere them, continue until the whole of the box base is covered. Set aside to dry.
Take the lid and cover with storm cloud paint, allow to dry, then dry brush some pink and blue paint over the top. Allow to dry.
Cut blue card to measure 11cm by 9cm. Round the corners, emboss with the folder and ink the edges before attaching to the lid on the right side. Layer foiled image overlapping on the left hand side and glue in place.
Die cut branches from green card.
Twist tissue paper to create flower, gluing organza ribbon underneath. Finish with a paper posy.
Use a glue gun to add a pearl bead to each corner of the bottom of the box as feet.
