The decorated mooncake box...


Decorated-mooncake-box


You know how I just LOVE sturdy boxes...so I am always excited when the Mid-Autumn Festival comes around. We get mooncakes [super sweet pastries in a variety of flavours] that come in lovely sturdy boxes. :)



I love the beautiful texture on the box so I left some parts of it uncovered. The rest of the box was measured and the DCWV patterned papers were cut. 


The patterned paper for the cover was given an even coat of adhesive with the Xyron 9" Creative Station.


The smaller pieces for the sides of the box were ran through the Xyron 5" Creative Station.


The pieces were then adhered to the box. I added some washi tape at the edges to create a little more interest.


The Blue Fern Studios chipboard was given a coat of gold paint.


Choose some patterned papers to decorate the cover and fussy-cut them.


Adhere them to the cover and add some blooms for texture and interest.



What do you think? :)
