A Rosy Smile

Here is a little rosy creation I made recently.  It's made up from an open-ended box base with an upright plaque trapped between.  Great design to cover with decorative paper, which is what I have done on mine.

The covering paper panels are all trimmed from one 12 x 12 in sheet with a pink textured top and a rose border. I first trimmed off the rosy border and cut out the roses to decorate the base of the plaque.  Two other roses were individually trimmed out to decorate the top of the box base.

All edges were coloured with Memento green dye ink applied with cut'n'dry foam.  The bottom panels were first trimmed out of Kraft card and then matted with the pink paper.and stuck in place as shown.  The main panel on the plaque was put together similarly but before attaching was stamped with a moth stamp (PaperArtsy) in Archival black ink and embellished with a diecut (Nestabilities) tag with pink panel and another 'Smile' stamp (PaperArtsy).  The roses were applied at the base on foam pads. A piece of 3 mm dark green satin ribbon was tied through the hole in the tag and a piece of black numbers Washi tape applied before sticking in place.

The lower panels were decorated with strips of the same Washi tape and the two roses applied on foam pads.

Final touch was to apply red flower buttons with Glossy Accents and a blob of green Stickles in the centre of each button.

This design can be decorated in any style or colourway to suit any occasion.
