First we will start with the Card Box construction:
1. Start with an 11”x 11” piece of card stock
2. Using the Diagonal plate for the Simply Scored, score on the 4-1/2” & 6-1/2” markers then rotate your card stock 180 degrees and score again at  4-1/2” & 6-1/2”
3. Rotate paper 90 degrees and score at 3-1/2” &   5-1/2” then rotate your paper 180 degrees and score again at 3-1/2” & 5-1/2”
4. Trim out the triangles marked with the blue ovals in the diagram.
5. Snip on the score lines marked with the red squiggle
6. Refer to the video to see this process in action.
Here is the video on how to do it, this will make it easier-
Now onto the decoration of the box:

  1. Take the 5” square of Designer Paper and secure on triangle end to the inside front of your box, make sure to leave a bit of cardstock as a border around the edges that are secured together– trim off any excess paper that is hanging off the box, be sure to do this while keeping the rest of the triangle intact as you will use it on the front flap. 
  2. Take the remaining DSP triangle and adhere it to the front flap, there won’t be enough to cover the entire front flap, just be sure to create a nice border edge along the point area. 
  3.  Secure the 3/4” x 6-3/8” strip of coordinating DSP to the top of the front flap– along the area that is exposed. 
  4. Take your 3/4” x 6-1/2” strip of Real Red card stock and punch the  Dotted Scallop Ribbon design along the entire strip, then create a fold in the middle along the entire strip. 
  5. Run a bead of tombo liquid glue along the middle of the folded scallop strip (place the glue so that the scallop edges will protrude UP once secured down) then secure it along the front flap where the 2 DSP’s meet, trim off any excess there is. 
  6. Stamp your Quint-Essential flower 3 times with 3 colors on your 5-1/2”x4-1/4” whisper white, use Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight, and Real Red. 
  7. Punch the largest color with 2-3/8” scallop circle, then the middle flower with 1-3/4” scallop circle, and the smallest flower with the 1-1/4” circle punches– layer them all together using dimensionals and secure a Rick Razzleberry button in the center. 
  8. Place 2 dimensionals on the left and the right back side of the flower, close the front flap and place the flower along the front over the front flap– make sure that the dimensionals secure to the bottom flap and the flower will just hold the front flap closed– our front flap should be able to be fed in and out of your front flower.
Finally to create the cards:

1. Take your 8-1/2” x 5-1/2” Whisper White card base and fold on the score line at 4-1/4”
2. Run your 4”x5-14” piece of whisper white card stock through the Big Shot use the Honeycomb Emboss Folder**
3. Adhere your embossed cardstock to the front of your card base using dimensionals
4. Adhere your 5-1/2”x2” DSP (pattern paper) strip along the front of your card, using snail adhesive
5. Stamp your Quint-Essential stamp on one side of the 5-1/2”x 2-3/4” whisper white card stock, use the FULL strength of your ink for the first flower, then without re-inking the stamp,
6. Huff on the stamp to re-moisten the ink left over from your first impression, then stamp the lighter floral image next to your FULL strength flower– this will give you 2 shades of the same color
7. Punch the darker flower out with the 2-3/8” scallop circle and use the 1-3/4” scallop circle for the lighter flower
8. Layer both on top of each other securing with dimensional and lining up the pattern of the flowers.
9. Color a large rhinestone with a coordinating sharpie and secure the rhinestone to the center of your flower.
