Amazing Paper Grace May Die of the Month Blog Hop

This month's Nostalgic Serenade Card Frame Die Set is absolutely amazing. It is a little bigger than most of dies. From the same die, you can prepare a big A5 card or you have a possibility to create a beautiful 3D project, such as a box, a book cover or basket.

My Project Today:

I prepared a box for a card. Firstly, I made a base from a white paper. I cut off the longer part of the die cut and glued it to the base as a handle.  
Then I made a rest of the box. On the top, I cut out the hole using the second die (in terms of size) from the set. I took a rectangle, bigger paper than the hole on the top and cut out the decorative pattern. I glued it underneath the hole. I cut three pieces of the frame with a hole in the centre, from white and gold paper. I adhered them alternately on the top using 3D tape.
As you can see I decorated the box with a bow and some flowers.

My second project:

My second project for this hop is a card.
The cover is made from two pieces of die cut (white and pink) adhered using 3D tape. Front and back of the card I connected using a narrow ribbon. I decorated a card using flowers and leaves.

Supply List:

Paper: white 250gsm paper, digital paper, gold paper
Accessories: ribbon, pearls, flowers, 3D tape, Platinum Die Cutting and Embossing Machine, May Die of the Month

For this month's Die of the Month, we cut it up and folded it up!
