Patchwork - Scallop Circle

Box Lid :

I created this box to be a focal point on my Inspiration Table :o) It's big! The height is 20cm and the base is 14.5cm square.

The patchwork was made up of 1 1/4" squares and glued to a 5" square of Whisper White cardstock. This was then centred over the Scallop Circle Die and cut in the Big Shot. I used 4 of them for the sides and 1 of the 'waste' frames for the lid :o)

The Designer Series Paper used is Springtime Vintage - from the new Mini Catalogue. I created the Flowers using the Fun Flowers Die - creased them and split the paper layers before daubing the edges with Platinum Shimmer Paint.

The ruffled ribbon is the new Seam Binding in Baja Breeze - this was just pleated randomly onto sticky strip. I also threaded a small piece of this ribbon through the button - yet another product from our new Mini Catalogue :o)
