How to:

Stamp Gnome Police Officer onto white card, colour, then fussy cut around the outline.
Set aside.

Score the 6-3/8″ x 6-3/8″ piece of card at 1-3/8″ on all four sides.

 Score the 5-11/16″ x 5-11/16″ piece of card at 1″ on all four sides.

In the centre panel of the 5-11/16″ x 5-11/16″ piece, use a 3″ stitched circle die to cut make a window.

Cut the 6-3/8″ x 6-3/8″ piece as shown below

Apply adhesive to the four outer tabs, fold in and adhere to the adjacent sides to create the box base.

Cut a piece of acetate measuring just under 3-5/8″, apply double sided tape around the four sides and adhere to the inside of the box lid.

Cut away two of the outer corners, and create tabs with the remaining two – as below.

Adhere the tabs inside to create the box lid

Ensure the lid fits the box.

Apply adhesive on the 1″ section, place the lid onto the box, then adhere the 1″ section to the outside back of the box to create a hinged lid.

Cut a 3″ circle from the centre of both 3-5/8″ x 3-5/8″ pieces of paper. Adhere one in side the lid to cover the tape strips on the acetate.

Adhere all the paper layers to the sides and front of the box base and lid.

Adhere the second 3-5/8″ x 3-5/8″ piece to the outside of the lid.

Apply some wet glue to the bottom right corner of the box.

Retrieve the Gnome Police Officer and adhere to the glue.

Line the inside of the box with paper or tissue and place the donut inside.

Stamp the Way to Go sentiment from the Work Life Sentiment Set on to a small strip of card. Cut to size.

Adhere the sentiment at the top of the donut box.
