Begin by choosing the papers from the paper collection that you wish to use for each piece of the peacock in the SVG cutting file and cut using your electronic die cutting machine. Set aside pieces. Stamp seven stampings of the large floral image in the Daisy Flourish Cling Stamp Set onto blue and green patterned paper in the Peacock Paisley Collection using black ink. Color using blendable pencils and blending solution. Fussy cut each piece. Now stamp several stampings of the Delightful Daisies Cling Stamp Set using black ink on white card stock. Color the centres only using a finger dauber and yellow ink. Die cut using the coordinating die. (You will need seven double small flowers for the ends of the peacock tail feathers, seven single large/mid sized flowers to use between the tail feathers, as well as one mid sized flower paired to create a double bloom to use at the base of the peacock's tail.) Shape the flowers that need shaping, and create the double blooms. Apply prills to the centre of each small double flower. Adhere them to the matching flower on the stamped Daisy Flourish image. Adhere the large/mid sized flowers to the stamped image as well. Moving along, stamp one stamping of the large flower image in the Feathered Daisy Cling Stamp Set as well as two stampings of the feather image in the Feathery Peacock Cling Stamp Set onto the same blue/green paper from the paper collection you have been using to create the tail feathers. Color each of these and again blend with blending solution and fussy cut. Follow SVG cutting file directions to put together the treat box for the peacock's body. Adhere two largest pieces of the tail together. Now lay out the seven stamped images you've completed making sure that the smaller double flowers are to the top of the tail and the large flowers are peeking through the areas where they will be visible when the next layer of tail feathers are added. Once you are happy with the arrangement, adhere them to the two larger tail pieces that you have already put together. Proceed to add the last two small tail pieces to the rest of the tail and assemble and adhere the rest of the project. Once your project is completely assembled, take the two feather images and adhere them to the bottom portion of the tail near the opening of the treat box. Now adhere the flower stamped image over top the feather images directly in the centre of the treat box. Apply the last shaped flower to the stamped image over the matching stamped flower at the base of the tail. Add a jewel to the centre of this flower. Continue to add jewels to the centres of each of the cut outs in the peacocks tail, as well to each of the larger flowers peeking through the tail feathers. Add some sequins to the tail feathers where you desire. Apply Diamond Stickles to each daisy on the creation, and Patina Stickles to the feather cut outs on the body on the treat box. Add a special treat to the box and have fun presenting this unique packaging to a special friend or family member!
