Happy Birthday Box

this box I made with the Arianna Blooms Collection !!
I made this two months ago now and I have been
waiting patiently to share it !!

I have a photographic step by step tutorial how to make the box itself.

website by clicking on the pic below.

Here is my box open !
I cut each piece off the lacy die and adhered it 
around the edge of the box covering over the top with ribbon.
It looks just like real lace !!

A full view of the box opened.
I used all the dies from the Arianna Lace set on this box !
I LOVE them !!!
I cut the papers so that they followed around the box .......
It is such pretty paper !

The top of the box.
The top paper and the one under the box itself is a card front
from the paper pad!! It does all the work of layering for you !!
I stamped the sentiment inked and cut it out, adhering 
with 3D glue for depth. Added swirls and flowers and done !!

And the back view ............ 

To make this project I used the following:

452255 Grand Calibur
HCD 747 Arianna Lace Die
HCDP1 244 Arianna Blooms Paper Pad
HCD 748 Arianna Blooms Die
459222 Blossoms tool kit
452062 Grand Circle Dies
HCPC 3612 Arianna Birthday Set

Other Products Used : White Card, Ribbon, pearls, glitter glue,
alcohol pens, green card, Victorian Velvet Ink.

To make the box I have tutorial here
To decorate the box I stamped the sentiment and coloured using alcohol
pens. Die cut this out with a circle die and ink up the centre and edges.
Adhere to the top of the lid with 3D glue. Die cut the lace flower
three times and cut each petal off. Adhere to the edge of the box. Adhere
Ribbon over the top also. Using ribbon to match the ribbon to tie the box
together, adhere it around the middle section which is the back of the flap.
Stamp, ink, glitter shape and add pearls to the flowers. Die cut 2 decorative swirl 
dies and a Flourishing vine. Cut the vine in half and adhere with the die cuts 
and a flower to the back of the box. On the inner section die cut four petal dies
and adhere with a flower and two Flourishing vine die cuts. On the top of the box
cut a petal die with hearts and adhere under a flower with three flourishes.
also adhere three smaller flowers with two flourishes cut to fit in the flowers.
Your project is now complete.
