Step 1 Cut a 4"x12" strip for each container from the Steampunk Botanica paper pad. Score at 5", 6½" and 11½". Fold along the score lines to create the basic container shape.
Step 2 Cut a 4" flower from the decorative cardstock using the die for the top flap.
Step 3 Fold in half and adhere in place at the top of the container using the Tombow® MONO Adhesive Power Bond.
Step 4 Cut a 3½"x4" panel and a label from the decorative paper and adhere to the front panel using the Tombow® MONO Adhesive Power Bond.
Step 5 Use a hook and eye fastening tab for the closure.
Step 6 Glue a cropped label onto a 3½"x3¾" plastic bag using the Tombow® MONO Multi-liquid Glue. Fill your bag with the gift and close. Apply the Tombow® MONO Multi-liquid Glue to the back inside of the container and let glue dry clear. Attach the bag for a repositionable hold onto the sticky, dried glue.
Step 7 Create a trinket pin by threading matching beads to a copper head pin. Use a crimping bead to hold. Construct a bow using the ribbon. Apply a liberal amount of Tombow® MONO Multi-liquid Glue to the middle of the flap. Let dry clear. When dry, arrange the trinket pin and bow onto the sticky glue.
Step 8 Attach the gears layered with the brads onto the front flap with small amounts of the Tombow® MONO Multi-liquid Glue for a permanent, strong hold.
