A DIAMOND IS FOREVER
Diamonds are woman's best friends... but definitely not for me!
Ha ha ha am I crazy? Maybe, but maybe because you haven't seen how I used the "Diamond" die yet !! I prefer diamonds made of paper and which perhaps contain rather chocolate diamonds :)
Initially I only die cut the part with the three triangles, so without the part above, the flower, to be clear. I die cut two parts with one patterned and two more with another patterned to match. I used the double face, "Antique Rose", "Pastel Green" and "Pastel Pink" and the Tommy "Primula" and "Magnolia" pattened.
Before gluing them together, I colored them with watercolor markers. Yes this paper is special and you can use watercolors!
The top part, the lid, remains pointed, but will not have the tabs on the 6 sides. Instead in the lower part, the base, the tabs are left, which will be cut by hand, so as to be able to close the box. Before closing the base, it is necessary to calculate about 3 cm from the center and make the creases and cut the segments up to the creasing line. Cut the tips to be able to fold inside and glue the 6 triangular wings inside to create the base.
I decorated the box with the flower of the "Vintage Rose" die using also the sprig of leaves. Then die cut the "hook" of the "Hanging Tags" and I used it to close the box, on the lid I attached it with a brad, instead at the base I used the magnets: one under the end of the hook and the other inside the base.
Hoping to have given you some inspiration for Easter or for the ceremonies, see you next time.
