Vintage Box

Today's project is a vintage box made with our Glitter Cardstock. It would make for a great gift or decoration piece! Follow these simple steps to create your own:

You will need:

Materials

Best Creation Glitter Cardstock GCS030 (1)

Design Paper for your decoration
Fabric Glue
Optional - Best Creation Strong Tape (double-sided redline tape) 

Tools

Ruler

Bone folder

Rotary Trimmer 17”

Let's get started!

Step 1  Cut the Glitter Cardstock Paper GCS030 (11” x  4 ¾” )
 

Step 2  Score the layer using a bone folder. (Along the short side, score at 4 ½” and  6 ½”).

Step 3  Using the leftover piece from step 1 of the Glitter Cardstock Paper GCS030, 
cut 2 pieces (4 ¾” x 4 ½”)  and 1 piece (4 ¾” x 2 1/16”


Step 4  Using fabric glue, paste the back of each of the three pieces to the back of the original piece (so you can have 2 glitter sides) with the pieces corresponding to the scored sections.

Step 5  For the inside of the box, cut your design paper (8” x 8” )


Step 6  Score the layer using a bone folder. (Refer to the graphic = score at 2” from each corner).


Step 7  Cut the 4 corners to form flaps, like the graphic.


Step 8  To form the box, apply double sided tape or glue to the end tabs and glue the sides together.

This is what the box will look like.


Step 9  Using fabric glue or double-sided redline tape, paste the base of the box 
to one of the 4 ½” x 4 ¾” Glitter Cardstock sections, as shown in the photo.

Step 10  Decorate as you wish!


 Here is our final project. We went for a vintage-theme:

Ocean Themed

Today's sample creation is a ocean color pallet wedding invitation. 

Here we used our Glitter Card Stock in Prussian Blue(GCS019). We contrasted with a beige sandy color card stock.  We added a mesh white flower with a pearl embellishment to the main invitation and pearls to the rest of the cards. 
For the belly band we used the same color sandy card stock and used our Bakers Twine in Light Sea Green (BT004). We also did a envelope slip with a teal ribbon around to finish the look.

All this was glued using our Glue Tape in Permanent(GT001).
