Place HotMarks on Tool Stand. Plug into electric outlet, press switch “ON”, and let heat for 4-5 minutes. To make “gift box”, use HotKnife to cut scrap of white foam core board 2” x 2 3/8”. 

  5. Use pencil with ruler to measure 1/4” from each bottom edge. Draw line from top corners to bottom edges. Cut with HotKnife Point so “gift box” is smaller at the bottom. Use pliers to remove HotKnife Point and drop Point into a ceramic dish.

  6. Adhere small piece of dotted paper to “gift box”. Use scissors to trim paper edges. Adhere grosgrain ribbon to backside of “gift box” as shown. Make bow to attach later.

  7. Using pliers, attach Mini Flow Point to HotMarks. Let Tool heat for a few minutes. Use pencil to lightly write “Happy Birthday” on Tag. Use Mini Flow Point to paper burn the letters. Make sure you are working on the glass surface. Use pliers to remove Mini Flow Point and drop Point into a ceramic dish.

  8. Using pliers, attach Star Stamp Point to HotMarks. Let Tool heat for a few minutes. Hot stamp the 4 stars with the Star Stamp Point on the Tag. Make sure you are working on the glass surface. Press switch “OFF”.

  9. To add color to the rose trim piece, use a sponge with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. Add red Stickles for a glittery touch to the edges of the roses.
