I was very excited to create my project today.  I used the new Heartfelt Creations "Cut Mat Create" Collection to decorate a gift box.  I loved using one of my all time favorite Heartfelt Creations flower sets and matching dies.  Some of the Paper Collection from this new collection includes the Posy Patch flowers.  I love that we can still use some of those first stamp sets and dies to coordinate with the newest designer paper collections.

To decorate the top of the box,  I stamped a variety of the smaller Posy Patch flowers using gray ink then used the matching Posy Patch dies to cut them out.  The edges of the flowers were sponged with light blue ink to match the flowers in the design paper.  To cover the top of the box I cut a piece of the Heartfelt Creations design paper to fit, then attached one of the 6x6" card panels from the Cut Mat Create Paper Collection in the center.  I added the butterflies using a stamp from the "Birds and Blooms PreCut Set".  The birthday sentiment is a stamp in the "Summer Glory PreCut Set".  Under the bow, I added one of the tags from the Cut Mat Create Paper Collection. 

The sides of the box were covered with Heartfelt Creations design paper.  I used two dies from the Cut Mat Design dies to create a frame for the pretty flower with swirls.  This flower is one of the dies in the Cut Mat Create 1A die set.  The flower and leaves were colored and shaped before attaching to the frame.  Above and below the die cut flower, I added the pretty stamped border from the "Vines and Blooms PreCut Set".   

On the front of the box, I added the black lace border from the Cut Mat Create Paper Collection, which is a flap to open the box.  On the bottom portion of the box, I die cut another Cut Mat Design Frame and added another tag from the Paper Collection.

Christine Kosmak said...

Loving this gift box, was just reading and looking at it when I thought the design on the lid would make a great project on a square photo frame, I hate when that happens because that means that I will have that idea in my head till I can do it. I'm already having trouble keeping up with other things, the list keeps getting longer though.
