Idea Gallery: Matchbox Marvels
Rose Box : Designer: Jill Thornton for Design Objectives
Stamp a piece of peach card all over with the Papermania V&A Wildflower stamp (VAM9061100) using sage green ink. Emboss with clear powder. Cut out a piece of the stamped card and cover matchbox. From the remaining stamped card punch out eight hearts. Roll one heart tightly and glue. Fold the remaining seven hearts in half and curl back the top to make petals. Glue these to the centre. Embellish the box with ribbon and the cardstock rose. Attach eyelets to the front of the box and thread with ribbon to create a pull.
