Adhesives - Adhesive Squares and 3D Raisens

I decided to make another card and box set and this time used the template called Box In A Bag found at Split Coast Stampers.

It starts very simply with a square of cardstock 4 1/2" by 4 1/2".
You score at 1" on all 4 sides and then score the diagonal from the outer corner to where the 1" score lines meet. Add tape to the squares so you can attach the form the base of the box.

The box corners are then burnished to form a neat tight edge.
You then add the patterned paper as in the tutorial to form the sides of the box. Then add a reinforced tab to the top to form the ribbon closure.

With the "Raisens" I decided to try and see if I could use them to add glitter to my flowers. I love the look of German Glass Glitter but as it is heavier than regular synthetic glitter it needs a good form of adhesive.

I added the "Raisen" to the center and shaped it slightly to make it more circular.
When it is wet is is difficult so I carried on and hoped for the best!

I poured on the glitter and pressed it down with my finger. You must be carefully with this product as it is made from real glass.

I shook off the excess glitter and continued shaping the glittered "Raisen" with both my fingers and an exacto knife.

They came out pretty good and I used more "Raisens" underneath to glue them to the box.

For the card I decided to go with a simple Z style fold.
The cardstock measures 12" by 6" and you score at 3" and 6" along the long side.

Burnish the folds, one in one direction, the second in the other forming a Z shape card with a large base of 6" by 6".

Decorate each panel with designer paper.

For the card decoration I used butterflies on flowers and I adhered them to the card using the Extreme Tac Adhesive Squares.

Complete the card and box by decorating how you wish.

I hope you have enjoyed this and be sure to drop by Scor-Pal and leave a comment so that you can be in with a chance of winning a great prize! Be sure to stop by the Glue Arts Blog and leave a comment there for even more chances!
