Create A Clam Shell Style Memory Box From Scratch With Graphic 45 Paper

January 19, 2018 — 5 Comments

For the closure mechanism I used my Cropodile hole punch and eyelet setter to punch two holes and then secure two eyelets.

Some of that bonus twine was then glued to the edge of one of these eyelets.

Flowers were decided on to add some detail to the box top so I grabbed some decorative brads from Teresa Collins.

… along with some black card stock and Tim Holtz Sizzix flower punches and got to work.

After punching out the required number of bit for each flower head I used a pokey tool and old eraser to poke holes into each piece …

… and then threaded these onto the brads.

These were then threaded through the eyelet and set in place by opening the legs (ooo-er) on the brads.

Now that, as they say, was that!
