I just love the Lacy Doily Die and wanted to really show case how to make a unique card using it. 

I began by die cutting two of the Lace Doily using the DCWV Cranberry Christmas pattern paper.  

I have the wonderful Xyron Creative Station…and it makes adding adhesive to intrigue pieces so easy. 
Add adhesive to both Lacy Doily that you cut out. 

Fussy cut around one and add the other to the front of you card base. 

Fussy cut around the piece that was added to the front of the card. 
Add the second prepared piece to the back side of the first. 
When glued together.
Add ribbon by stapling it in to place. 

Fussy cut around die cut and place over staples with pop dots. 
Add pattern paper to inside of card. 
Fussy cut bird image out and place on inside. 
Add “Merry Christmas” piece to card.

Form each piece using tweezers, stylus and soft mat. 
Layer all the Pansy flower pieces together, add brad. 
Glue to front of prepared card front. 
Tie a bow to close card. 

I created a pretty box to place my card along with a gift card in. 
I began with a candy box that I had saved. 
I ran my pattern paper through the Xyron Creative Station. 
Placed it on the box front and sides. 
Die cut Lacy Doily out from the DCWV Cranberry Christmas. 
Form a cone and glue. 
Thread silver ribbon through the top. 

Add one of the tags from the DCWV Cranberry Christmas Premium Pad; tie a silver bow to the tag. 
Add cone to top of box. 
Tie the silver ribbon into a bow. 
Die cut the small petal from Pansy Flower Die. 
Form flowers using tweezers, stylus and mat. 
Layer together with brad. 
Glue into cone along with flower pick greens. 
Decorate the sides of box with strips of matching paper and small circle punches.

Suitcase Favor Box and Card Ensemble with Xyron and DCWV

Today I am sharing with you a fun gift idea set…a lovely Suitcase Favor Box made from the pattern from the  DCWV DIY Project Favor Box Stack Pad using the DCWV Seaside Yacht Stack along with some of my favorite Xyron Products.
 Begin by first cutting the suitcase favor box pattern from the DCWV DIY Project Favor Box Stack. Place the template on the DCWV Seaside Yacht Stack pattern paper by lightly applying a bit of adhesive from the Xyron Mega Adhesive Runner. (Don’t press down since you will be removing it) Lightly trace around with pencil.
Remove template from pattern paper, cut around traced pattern with scissors. Score on lines to form box, folding the sides in and using your Xyron Mega Runner adhere the suitcase sides to the folded sides this will form the favor box. 
Cut and trim bow template pattern from the DCWV DIY Project Stack Favor Box. Trace bow to DCWV Seaside Yacht Stack pattern paper with pencil. Cut around traced pieces with scissors. Form bow using Xyron Mega Runner, adhere to front of formed Suitcase Favor Box with Xyron Mega Adhesive Runner. 
Die cut doily in half, run through the Xyron 1.5 Sticker Maker. Add to front of Suitcase Favor Box. 

Add punched anchor tag to handle of Suitcase Party Favor Box using red twine with pop dot.
 I made a Hello Card to go along with my Suitcase Favor Box, thought it would add a nice addition to my favor box. I used the DCWV Seaside Yacht Stack to make my 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ white card base cutting the paper and placing it on my card front with my Xyron Mega Adhesive Runner. The light blue pattern paper is actually half of the side of the suitcase pattern that I traced and place on the front to card front with Xyron Mega Adhesive Runner. I used the other half of of the doily die cut and ran it through the Xyron 1.5 Sticker and placed it under the pattern piece. Add a few flags from the DCWV Seaside Stack as well as the Hello Sentiment.
I like to decorate the inside of my card so I placed to matching strips on the inside using Xyron Mega Adhesive Runner. I hope you enjoyed my Suitcase Favor Box and Card Ensemble. Make sure to check out DCWV other fabulous paper stack as well Xyron products especially the new Creative Station…it has become my favorite Xyron Adhesive Machine. Thanks for checking in today and look forward to your next visit. Hugs Pammejo
