Treasure Box

I love these treasure boxes. I have had this stamp for some years now, it is one of my favourites.
I used
Creative expressions stamp HH1218L
versamark inkpad
Ivory pearlised cardstock
embossing powder
colouring pencils
crystal glitter
satin ribbon
flower from stash
posh tissue paper

First of all I stamped the image onto the card, used embossing powder and heated it. I made 7 of these panels and cut round each one.. Then I cut away the left hand tab from each panel and stuck them all together in a row. I coloured them in pastal shades and used a clear glue and crystal glitter. I stuck the final panels together and  I  cut a base and a top. I folded in the bottom panels, interweaving them and stuck the base inside the box. I found some posh tissue paper in Tesco's and 'artistically' crumpled it into the box. I laid the top onto the tissue paper and folded the tops of the panels interweaving them. Then I stamped, embossed, coloured, cut out and glittered a medallion and attached a long length of ribbon to it. When I closed the box and laid the medallion on the top I was able to wrap the ribbon round the box and tie it into a bow. Then a flower from my stash finished it off quite nicely.

  5. Beautiful box - love the gorgeous soft pastel colours. I use a white linen look cardstock for my boxes the same weight as fior the card bases I get it in boxes like you get at the papermill but from a local craft shop Paperworks . I dont know if you ever got cardstock from the papermill but I guess it is about 240gsm.(The papermill here in NI has closed) I tried a heavier weight card but when you scored it it just cracked along the scoreline and didn't look good.
