Embossing Powder Techniques #1

Faux Reptile Purse Favours

This cute favour box was cut out with the Big Shot and Stampin' Up!'s exclusive Matchbox die.

I was inspired by Francine Yee's Pumpkin Pie sample to  make the others.

Punch a hole in the side of the box and insert the ribbon. I used glue dots to secure it. Then assemble the box.

Fold the slipcase and the flap on all the score lines. Apply a VersaMark pad to both pieces, except for the small tab section. Pour Clear EP (embossing powder) onto the card stock and shake off the excess. Draw a bone folder across the surfaces in uneven lines
Use a heat tool to melt EP until it is shiny and let cool.
Punch a hole in the flap and insert a brad. Assemble the slipcase and adhere the flap. Stick the brad to the case with a glue dot.
