How it's Made!
Place the Sweet Treats Embossing Board on the Ultimate Pro, (There are other styles of box embossing boards available from Crafter's Companion, they all fit the Ultimate Pro in the same way and the embossing and assembly process can be used on all)
Take Two a4 sheets of the Centura Pearl and emboss two box panels on the outside edge (the inner line is for decorating the panels later)
Using the Xyron Double Sided High Tack Tape start assembly by placing strips of tapes on to the side and bottom flaps.
Cut a piece of Centura for the bottom and stick in place using the tape.
There you have it, now how quick and easy was that!!!!!!
To make the decorative panels emboss the patterned paper using the inner embossing line and then cut out
Distress the edges using an ink pad
Give it some sparkle and using some Crafter's Companion Spray and Sparkle
As a finishing touch emboss all the decorative panels
Finally run all the panels through the Xyron 9" Creative Station and now you are ready to decorate you box. Place the panels around the box and then add the finishing touches to make it a gift box that will be treasured as much as the gift inside !
