Card Box Z1953
Start with a sheet of White Pines B&T Duos and a sheet of Cranberry Cardstock. Cut 1 ½” strips of both papers and then cut these into 1 ½” squares. When you glue these onto the front of the box, you will leave a ¼” border around the top, bottom and side edges. These edges will be covered with the shimmer trim. Apply lots of Bonding Memories glue pen to the back of each square and use tweezers to pick them up and position them on the box. This will keep your fingers clean for smoothing each square down. Continue the squares on the sides and top of the box. I used the White Pines paper to cover the back and base.
Now it's time to add the Green Shimmer Trim to the edges. For the front of the box, you need to cut the shimmer trim to the length of the box and then mitre the corners by cutting off at a 45° angle. This will give you nice clean corners with no bumps. You then need to cut 6 more pieces with square ends at 1 ½” for the top and bottom of the sides and the ends of the top of the box as shown in the photos. You will need some scraps of Colonial White cardstock to stamp your images on. I stamped the bauble twice in Fern Ink and once in Cranberry. I stamped the frame in Fern and then the Merry Everything in Cranberry. I then cut these out with my Micro Tip Scissors. I adhered the Merry Everything with foam tape on the front of the lid and then I adhered the baubles on the front using Glue Dots.
