Starting inside the box attach a long line of scrapbooking tape around the box front to back. Continue on to the lid, wrap onto the underside and trim off and secure.

Create a second line of tape that crosses this in the bottom left corner of the lid, again, starting and finishing on the underside.

Cut around the scalloped edging from two of the journaling notes and attach inside the scrapbooking tape border,

Tear a rough circle from one of the journaling notes and place grid side up on the table. Crumple the edges upwards and edge with stickles. Allow to dry.

Cut a length of wire and thread with buttons. Twist the ends together and bend into a heart shape. Layer the heart and circle over the point on the lid where the borders cross and layer the prima flowers and gem in the centre.

Cut the bird on the flower from one of the journaling notes and attach coming from behind the paper circle.

Use the black stazon to stamp the sentiment on the other side of the box lid and highlight the text once dry with the white pen.
