Arigato Favor

A little thank you...kimono girl will "bow" with thanks...

All stamps are from our cling set, Arigato (CL-20).  Start with a small box of candy.  Cut 2 images each of girl and sakura (one b&w image and one colored image).  Stamp and cut out one "arigato" sentiment. Cut out a contrasting strip of paper (Width is approx. 7/8"...for length, wrap paper around box and add 1/2".  Score at 1/4" from each short edge).  Also, cut a strip of acetate (1/8" x 1") and sandwich between b& w and colored images of girl (photo shows pieces already glued together).  Attach bottom of the acetate piece to the b&w image of the sakura: 

Wrap candy box with paper.  Wrap contrasting strip of paper around box and add double stick tape above and below scored line at each edge (placement of double stick tape indicated by arrows).  Center sentiment on contrasting strip of paper:

Remove backing from 4 strips of double stick tape, adhere so that contrasting strip is attached to box and forms a small tab at the top of the box:

Glue b&w sakura behind the tab:

Glue colored sakura in front of tab and onto b&w image of sakura, matching edges.  Finish off with a gold bow.  If you move the box gently, the girl will appear to be bowing :)
