Clematis Box for Spring

Hello!  Thanks for stopping by!
Today I have a really fun project to share with you. I have used the latest die from Heartfelt Creations to make this box.

Die cut 3 box panels from Paper Temptress Laser Silver Luster Paper using the Gift Ensemble die. Die cut 2 more from SU Concord Grape cs. Cut the long lace edges off of one of the grape die cuts. Cut the extra lace pieces in half-these will be used as hinges in the corners of the purple lid. Match up a lace piece with the lace edge of the box in the very corner, score the piece and fold and then adhere to the inside corner of the box. Repeat on the remaining 3 corners of the lid.
Adhere the sides of the box together. Fold and adhere the lace edge to the sides of the box at the bottom. Adhere the bottom end flaps to the 2 side end flaps. Your box is now assembled.
Stamp the Striped Sun Kissed flowers in Concord Grape on white cs, and die cut. Sponge with Wisteria Wonder for some color and sponge Concord Grape around the edges. Mold your flowers and adhere layers of petals with dimensionals. Add pearls for centers. Stamp leaves in Lucky Limeade on white cs. Sponge on some Lucky Limeade ink. Paint on Moss Green 3D Stamp Paint. Once dry, Sponge on more Lucky Limeade ink from the paint out toward the end of the leaf.

Cut 2 1½ inch strips of dp from the Delicate Aster dp. Lightly score, or gently fold 1 strip to fit around the box, lengthwise. The strip won't be quite long enough, which is why you have the second strip. Cut a second piece about 2 inches long and adhere to the ends of the first strip, so that you have a band of paper; slip band over box. Adhere flowers and leaves to band.

And another project this week:

 This was a mixed media project for me, but unfortunately, hardly any of it can be seen because of the layout I chose to use it with!  For details on how to make this card and to see all of the other beautiful creations by the Design Team, why not pop over to the HC blog?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have a blessed week,

Lee Ann  :)
