- Tattered Lace Gift Box for Cards die, also is on the USB Number 9 Special Shaped Cards

Cut the base and the mats and layers from the Tattered Lace Pocket Die set in watercolour cardstock.
Paint the front of the pocket base with the Inka Silk, using a sponge.
Turn over the base and paint the central top two sections, as you will see this when you open the pocket flap.
Take all the smaller mats, and paint them as you did the pocket base. Once you have done all the painting, you can leave it with a chalky look, or you can buff with some kitchen towel to give a delicate sheen to your work.
Mat your coloured sections onto the white layers and then glue them to the pocket base. It’s easier to do all the matting, layering and stamping while your work is flat.
Stamp your “Mr & Mrs” or other message to the bottom of the smallest white mat and attach to the pocket base.
Bend all the score lines and construct the pocket.
To fasten, use a length of twine, wrap round the top section a couple of times, and finish with a bow! Now you’re ready to fill the pockets with treats… and tick one more job off your DIY wedding ‘To Do’ list!
