Eastern Palace Hexagonal Box

Today I’m showcasing a gorgeous box I’ve made using the Eastern Palace suite of products and the Window Box Thinlits Dies. I love how easily this box came together and how elegant it looks.

Firstly I took some Tranquil Tide cardstock and laid out the hexagonal box die from the Window Box Thinlits, the large circle medallion and one of the small circle medallions from Eastern Medallions.

I ran this through the bigshot once to create the top decoration. I then removed the large medallion die and moved the small medallion to the next square and ran through again. You will need to repeat this once more for one half of the box. To create the bottom use only the small medallion and run through the bigshot three times. When you have done this the pieces you have should look like this:

As you can see in the above phot I have cut off the two side fold flaps on the bottom section as these won’t be needed. Add adhesive, I used the fine-tip glue, along each remaining flap at the sides and on the bottom piece. Do not put adhesive on the lid part of the box. Hold the box in place while the adhesive dries if you’ve used a wet glue like me.

To decorate the top of the box I cut the star shaped medallion out of gold foil and then created a flower using the dies and the vinyl stickers.

Stick the gold flower sticker onto the Tranquil Tide cardstock and place the corresponding dies over it as shown above, run through the bigshot and one super quick flower is ready for the top of the box. I added a final touch of Gold Metallic Enamel Shapes to the centre of each side window circle.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this project, I’m loving using the Eastern Palace Suite.
