Tutorial Thursday: Oval Stacking Box with Romantique


Hi Everyone!!  It's Tutorial Thursday time!!  Today I'm making a Melissa Frances Oval Stacking Box with the very romantic Prima Romantique collection

These cute little boxes come in a set of 3.  I'm using the middle size box.

BoxFirst, trace the top of the box on the back side of your paper.

Box-6Cut 2 strips out of 8×8 paper that are 1 1/2" wide to cover the sides.  I'm using Prima's Romantique 8×8 paper pad.

Box-7Adhere the first strip along the side.

Box-8Line up the second strip with the first, cover the rest of the side of the box top, and cut off the excess paper.

Box-9Adhere the traced cutout from step 1 to the top of the box.

Box-10If needed, trim any excess paper, and sand lightly for a nice finished edge.

Box-11Ink all the edges and bottom of the box with Distress Ink (I used Antique Linen).

Box-12Embellish, and you're done!  Easy peasy!  I use Prima Lace, Prima  Avon Roses, Prima Gillian Flowers, and a BoBunny Etc Trinket to decorate mine!

I thought this would make a great gift, especially for Valentine's Day.  Fill it with candy and a small card.  Who wouldn't love that?!  ENJOY!
