Step by Step Instructions
1 When the grey board is put next to the score box base you might find that the final score line doesn`t quite match up, so score another line next to the one just made & this will relieve the problem. This is due to the thickness off the card.
4 5 Add a small square of matching paper to one of the whole box flaps as this will be seen in the base of the box once it`s made up. This way it will give a professional look to the inside of the box.
6 7 Turn the card over to reveal the plain grey board and use the forest moss ink pad to colour the top section only of the board. Allow the piece to dry rather than using a heat tool as this might shrink the card or paper.
11 Add some Cosmic Shimmer glue to the upper inside section of the box.
13 14 Add some glue to the outside and inside of the tab on the platinum card. Wrap the card around the box and place the tab down on the last section of the box panel before wrapping shut the final section of the box.
15 16 Now close and glue the base flaps of the box up. Remember to close the covered flap first as this will be seem on the inside of the box and just follow the making the lid steps found on part 1 if you are not sure how it`s done.
20 21 These UTEE flowers were made using the Melting Pot workshop (found on the workshop page). As the colours aren`t quite right then some pink embossing powder has been sprinkled onto the flower & then heat set onto the flower. You may wish to melt the UTEE slightly before adding the powder as it will allow the powder to grab onto the warm UTEE. Then heat set the powder until it`s melted.
21 22 Using this technique means the UTEE can be altered to suit the project. Try making up extra flowers when you have the melting pot is out and then you will have them handy for projects like these.
