Hello and welcome! 💕
Here’s a lovely little project and just in time to make it for a friend as a gift! For instructions & products click the link below 😍
Cut 2 sheets of Spring Garden Paper Collection 9 x 9” and adhere together with 1/2” overlap to give an overall size (17 1/2 x 9”). Use the cardboard backing from your paper collections and cut 2no. 5 1/2 x 7 3/8”, 2no. 3/4 x 7 3/8”, 1no. 2 3/4 x 7 3/8”. Adhere 3no. 1 x 8” off cuts together to create a guide. Lay down the cardboard pieces dry first to get an idea of centred position. Adhere 2no. 1/2” magnets on the underside of the first 5 1/2” piece of cardboard (left hand side of underneath). Glue down left to right cardboard (portrait) 5 1/2”, 3/4”, 5 1/2”, 3/4”, 2 3/4”. Use the guide to space each piece equally apart. Mitre the corners with scissors or a kraft knife close to the cardboard. Gently run a ball tool along the cardboard and crease the paper around each edge and adhere. Adhere 2 pieces of Spring Garden Paper Collection together to create the lining 16 x 7 1/4”, edge with Deep Purple. Lay 2no magnets on top of the existing paper covered magnets and add double sided adhesive onto the adjoining cardboard piece. Gently bring the flap over, ensure square and rub only on the magnets and carefully pull back, the adhesive should pick up the loose magnets in the correct position. Lay the lining piece over and with a bone folder rub the paper into the spine gaps. Adhere over the top of the magnets on the inside mat and layered scalloped Decorative Circles.
Adhere Spring Garden Paper panels to cover the external front/back 5 1/2 x 7 1/4”, magnet flap 2 3/4 x 7 1/4”, sides 5/8 x 7 1/4” edged in Deep Purple. Adhere 4no. white cardstock Album Tags & Accents corners edged in Deep Purple.
Cut white cardstock 4 1/4 x 6 1/4” and 2no. score lines on 3 sides at 3/8”. Cut away the corners where the score lines overlap leaving a tab (photos on my blog). While the box is flat cut purple Spring Garden Paper edged in Deep Purple to cover the sides and front 4 5/8” x 3 3/8”. Adhere the pocket sides/bottom together. Add adhesive to the exposed flaps on 3 sides and adhere inside (tip: position the first pocket when closed).
Sandwich 2no. purple Eyelet Oval Die to cover front and back white cardstock. Adhere half the purple oval onto the magnet flap. Mat and layer white cardstock Decorative Oval Die onto Spring Garden plain edge Eyelet Oval Die, edge all with Deep Purple and adhere onto the purple oval on dots.
Stamp onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper in Magenta Hue Fragrant Hyacinth, die-cut and colour with French Ultramarine. Spritz and lay face up in the 3D Hyacinth Shaping Mold. Add Nuvo Dandelion to the centres. Adhere with hot glue onto a white cardstock small hyacinth stamped in Leaf Green.
Stamp onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper in Deep Purple Fragrant Hyacinth, die-cut and colour with Majestic Violet and Magenta Hue. Shape with Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit (lay face down on foam mat and curl into a ball with the tool, then flip over and press the ball into the centre to give the petals a curled under effect). Add Nuvo Dandelion to the centres. Adhere with hot glue onto a white cardstock large hyacinth stamped in Leaf Green. Colour the leaves with watered down Distress Ink Peeled Paint.
Die-cut a tag from the Spring Garden Paper Collection Ornamental Tags and stamp and edge in Majestic Violet ‘You are so thoughtful’ Just For You Cling Stamp Set.
Adhere hyacinth, tag and bow onto the oval with hot glue, add Dries Clear and glitter.
