Decorated Box With Susan’s Garden Patch

June 25, 2015

Hi, it’s Angela and today I want to share a decorated box that I created with Elizabeth Craft Designs products. Lately I’ve been inspired by softer color palettes and springtime. I decided to use one of Susan’s Garden Patch die and the new flower dies to create a quilt. The box is a perfect place to keep your dies or cards that you’ve created.

The Box:

*Cut about 15 1/4″ strips of assorted patterns of pattern paper. Attach ECD double-sided adhesive to a piece of 5″ x 4″ thin white paper. Start placing the 1/4″ strips to the adhesive in a herringbone pattern.

*Using the Garden Patch die, cut out a green cardstock grid and also cut out the paper you created the herringbone on and keep the 6 squares, discard the frame.

*Attach the green grid to a double mat of patterned papers and glue the six squares into the openings. Apply some coffee ink around the edges using a sponge.

*Attach the grid to a piece of patterned paper and a green mat and attach to the box top.

Decorating the Quilt:

*Cut one leafy branch from green cardstock to decorate the two opposite corners of the box.

*Cut 3 sets of flowers from the Bunch of Flowers die. Distress and wrinkle the flowers. Apply ink to the edges and nest the three sizes together. Place a brad to hold them together. Glue two flowers to the lower left corner.

*Glue one flower to the upper right corner and place two pins under the flower.

*Cut the word “QUILT” using the Alphabet 1-Caps die from patterned paper and glue to the bottom right corner of the box.

*Decorate the sides and the inside the box as desired.
