Die Cuts with a View. It takes two 12 X 12" pieces to cut out the pieces for the box using the Sizzix Big Shot Pro die cutting machine.
I chose to use my finished design as a gift box. There is an opening in the back that's perfect to fit a party favor in. Once you decorate and put the box together it twists easily to fold down flat. Wouldn't it be cute to put inside of a greeting card or scrapbook? Here's a PDF with the instructions for assembling the box.Glue Dots, I designed a branch of leaves and transferred it to the top and side pieces with white transfer paper. I used a fine liner brush to paint the design with DecoArt Americana Warm White acrylic paint. For me, this was like sketching with a brush. I started by pulling a curved line from the base of the stem to the top leaf. Next, I pulled smooth strokes for the vein lines and jagged strokes for the outside edge of the leaves.
