This origami box folding is taking me over I think!
Using UK A4 squared makes a perfect gift box size (37cm or 3.5" approx).
I really wanted to incorporate some of the elements of my exploding boxes with this one, it's for a friend.
- Inner Lid:
I wanted a nice message inside the lid and found Hero Arts 'Happiness Messages' fitted the bill! I stamped in VersMark clear embossing ink and embossed with gold.
- 'Black on Black embossing':
Here I used Perfectly Clear 'Leafy Silhouettes' stamped with a VersMark clear ink pad and embossed with clear embossing powder.
- Decorative Panels & Box Lining:
I used a base of lime green card and tinted it with VersaColor Evergreen and Lagoon Blue inks. I then stamped Stampendous 'Summer Leaves' (the fern) using VersaColor Evergreen.
I finished with green ultra-fine glitter highlights.
The dragonfly is punched - Paper Shapers Whale of a Punch 'Dragonfly' then highlighted with ultra-fine glitter.
