How to Make a Downton Abbey Oval Filigree Die Box

Give a little something extra with this charming Downtown Abbey inspired filigree box, filled with your thoughtful gift for all occasions! 

You will need; 

  • Big Score
  • Trimmer and scissors
  • Collall Tacky Glue
  • Acetate
  • Crafter’s Companion A4 hammered Cream cardstock
  • Downton Abbey Oval Filigree Die
  • Downton Abbey 3D Bow Filigree Die
  • Pearls from your stash

1 – Using your Big Score, place the short side of a piece of A4 card to the butt of the lid side and score at 6 ½ inches – cut on this line – you will need 2 of these. Score one on all 4 sides at 1 inch on the lid side of your board, and 1 on all 4 sides on the base side of your board
2 – Place the Filigree part of the oval die in the centre of the box lid, and place the largest of the oval nesting dies inside that, tape with a little low tack tape and run through your die cutting machine.

3 – Turn it over, cut a piece of acetate to size and use tacky glue to apply the acetate to the box lid, I use my fingertip it gives a thinner coverage and the glue dries clear through the acetate so you won’t get unsightly glue marks
4 – Cut the corners of both pieces of cardstock 

5 – Burnish the score lines and using tacky glue, construct them together
6 – You can now decorate how you choose – I used the nesting oval die and the Filigree Bow to finish my design
