I have been playing with the Painted Harvest stamp set and using the Daisy Punch to make a flower, I really like how it has turned out. This size flower is the perfect size for a small gift box so I decided to design one. I like to create by being very economical with my supplies so wanted to use a small piece of DSP. So I used a piece 4x6. This means you can get 6 from a 12x12 sheet which is very economical.
This box does not require any glue and is held together with a ribbon bow - simples! I got the idea while watching a crafting TV shopping channel, they made a larger one, I experimented with different size cardstock and came up with this one that fits the flower really well.
|Make a small impression at the centre point|
|Do this on all 4 sides|
|Score a line at 3" on the long side|
|Score all the diagonals to form a diamond shape|
Then thread a ribbon through and draw them together and tie a bow, this will close the box nicely.
|Such a cute shape|
|I used a 3/4" circle punch for the sentiment|
Let me know what you think and post pictures of any you have made, I would love to see them.
