Graphic 45 
Steampunk Debutante
Book Box

Hello dear G45ers! 
Happy to share with you my #SimplyG45 project 
for this month featuring the awesome 
Steampunk Debutante DCE! I have also used 
the Graphic 45 Book Box Staples.

I just love these boxes they are lovely to create with
 and so versatile. Love that they come with 
adorable tags too! I have used lots of cutting dies 
and mixed media products to put this all together.

Herewith the Supplies and Instructions you 
may use to recreate such a project:

Graphic 45 Supplies used:
Book Box (4.625 in x 6.625)

Other Supplies:
Various Dies
Distress Ink (Ground Espresso)
String and Gauze
Seam Binding
Foam Board
Foam Squares/Adhesive
Rust Paste
Icing Paste
Embossing Powders (Caesar's Gold & Merci Beaucoup Mint)
Sequins and Rhinestones
Glossy Accents/Soft Gloss Gel

Ink the edges of the book box with distress ink.

Cut pieces from the pattern sheets to fit the box leaving a 
small border for each. Ink the edges with distress ink.
Tip: Leaving a border will show off the 
beautifully inked edges of the book box.

Cut 3 tags to mat the kraft tags using the G45 tag die.
Add a mixed media textured die to the tags and cut.
Tip: Use masking tape to keep the die in place,
thus making sure it stays in the position you want it.

Cut a few die cut shapes and Ink the edges with distress ink.

Ink the edges of the chipboard elements with distress ink.
Add eyelets to the holes of the mini tags.

Create your own crinkle ribbon. 
Colour some seam binding with G45 color box inks randomly.
Tip: Add 2 different colours to your craft sheet and
spray some water onto it. Then drag the ribbon 
through the mixture and scrunch it together. Leave
to dry or dry with a heating tool.

Cut a few gear shapes from chipboard and colour
with rust pastes.

Emboss the chipboard pieces with 2 colours embossing ink.
Tip: Emboss the complete piece with one colour 
first and then randomly add the other 
colour and heat it again.

Add some icing paste to the box using a stencil.

Add gauze, string, die cut elements, metal embellishments
and sequins on the cover of the box.

Add rhinestones to the lions eyes of the brass
door knocker.

Tear some pieces of cloth randomly and add to the
inside of the box.

Adhere the die cut pieces with foam board.

Add string to the mini chipboard tag elements.

Mat the stickers onto the pattern sheets and 
adhere with foam squares/adhesive.
