  • Unroll 24 inches of the Scor-Tape and begin to apply the pointed end of the tissue pieces to the adhesive tape (1/4 inch apart).
  • Starting at one end of the tape with the tissue pieces, start rolling inward until you have reached the other end.
  • Fluff the tissue pieces until you are happy with your flower.
  • Cut/emboss Foliage #5 from green tissue paper and adhere to top of box.
  • Adhere rose on top of foliage.
To make gift tag:

  • Cut/emboss Gold Ivy #1 with white cardstock. Leaving paper in die, stencil using a sponge dauber and Angel Pink ink. Remove from die and sponge edges with pink ink.
  • Stamp sentiment with Tuxedo Black ink and punch 1/16th hole near edge.
  •  Decorate a bag of treats with pink silk ribbon and gift tag.

*************************
My second project is a pretty card to go with my treat box! This was a quick and easy card to create! I love creating shaped cards with Spellbinders die templates and they make such an impression!


To make the shaped card, I cut pink cardstock 4 x 8 inches and folded in half to make my card base of 4 x 4 inches. Place the fold of the paper just inside one of the edges of the Gold Ivy #4 die template, then cut/emboss to get your shaped card. Cut/emboss 4 Gold Corners One Scalloped Border and adhere to 4 edges of shaped card. Layer the card with Gold Ivy #3 in light pink cardstock, and Gold Ivy #2 in white cardstock with foam dots. Cut/emboss/stencil the #2 piece with a sponge dauber and Angel Pink ink pad. Add a sentiment to the white piece with black ink, and finish it off with a pretty silk bow, pearls and a rhinestone heart.
