Step 1: Supplies :
· Card Stock (I used Ivory )
· Designer paper
· Paper Cutter
· 1/8” Quilling Strips (turquoise, ivory, crimson, green)
· Quilling tool
· All purpose Gel Adhesive / Snail Adhesive/ Glue-stick/ Glue Dots
· Ink pad
· Border Punch (Martha Stewart) / Heart Punch
· Butterfly accents
· Rhinestones / Pearl stones
Take 5-1/2” x 11” ivory cardstock and score at 2-5/8”, 5-1/4”, 7-7/8”, and 10-1/2” on the 11” side. Score at 3” on 5-1/2” side.
Cut out a notch on the left 2-1/2” side.
Fold properly on all the vertical score lines.
Cut 3 vertical lines on 2-1/2“ side.
Fold on first 3 horizontal lines starting from 1/2” flap side.
Cut designer paper in the following dimensions: 1 strip of 2-1/2” x 5-3/8” and 3 strips of 2-1/2” x 2-7/8”.
Glue these strips on the bottom part of the card.
Cut 3 strips of size 2-1/2” x 2-3/8” of the designer paper and glue them on the folded flaps.
Cut 1 strip of size 2-1/2” x 2-3/8” of the designer paper and glue it on the upper part of opposite side of the card.
Glue the 1/2” flap to the opposite side. You will get a standing box.
Cut 2 pieces of Ivory color cardstock measuring 1-1/2” x 3-5/8”. Score
both sides at 1/2” so that you are left with middle dimension on 2-5/8” (which is the dimension of the one side of the box). Fold at score lines in opposite direction so that you get a ‘Z’ fold.
Glue the 1/2” flaps and paste it in the middle of the box so the middle of box is divided into 3 equal parts.
Make all the quilled embellishments. Stamp the sentiments on a piece of
ivory cardstock and cut them out. Punch some hearts out of red card stock. Punch a strip of ivory cardstock with a border punch.
Mount all the quilled flowers on strips of ivory cardstock.
Start arranging the quilled flowers on to the box and follow as shown.
