- Take lid from chosen box and place stencil over. Hold the stencil in place with your hand then use the foam applicator pad in the top of the Gilding Polish to smooth over the Metallic Gilding Polish. Carefully remove the stencil leaving shining stars. Leave to dry completely.
2. Repeat the process on a square of coloured cardstock, once dry trim to size and secure to the front of your card blank using double-sided tape. Our cardstock panel measured 3 ¾ x 3 ¾” and was mounted on a 4 x 4″ square card blank.
3. Use 3D adhesive foam pads to secure your chosen die-cuts and embellishments in place.
4. Layer and glue elements used to create the card to make a matching gift tag for the box.
