I first decided that the very darkest coordinating CS color would be for the paper ribbon(Cocoa). The lid and innermost layer would be the lightest CS color (Desert Sand). Theoutside of the box (outer layer) would be the next to the darkest color (New England Ivy). The center layer and coordinating lid accents would be the next to the lightest color (BarnRed).
Don't cut ribbon into pieces; start at end and tie knots, then cut.
Corner Round all pieces as shown and ink distress all pieces before assembly.
Complete all 3 sections before adhering sections together.
"Neutral" CS refers to the light CS that comes in your packet (e.g. White Daisy, ColonialWhite, Vanilla, Bamboo)
1. Outside Layer: Take one 12x12 sheet of CS you've selected as outside layer of Box (I selectedNE Ivy and opted for Textured CS) and stamp w/dots on the outside and beads & dots on theinside. Score 4" from each outside edge of paper (light side/inside up). Fold all scores towardsthe center. Cut as shown below in the first figure. Round all corners and ink distress edges andfolds on both sides of paper. (This is CS_1)
