Floral Gift Box

Floral Gift Box

Hello there! The theme on the Crafty Meraki blog this week is Gift Giving, so I thought it would be fun to create a simple gift box and embellish it with flowers.

First, I chose a lovely striped paper from the Color Cascade Pattern Paper pad. I trimmed the paper to 6" x 6" and scored it on all sides at 1". On two of the sides, I cut the 1" score line up to where the two score lines bisected to create tabs. I folded each side along the score lines and secured the tabs with strong, double-sided adhesive. For the bottom of my gift box, I cut white cardstock to 5 7/8" x 5 7/8" and repeated the steps for scoring, cutting and adhering.

To embellish the top of my gift box, I created some flowers with the Artisan Flora Wreath Builder Dies. I diecut the elements from colored cardstock and blended each piece with coordinating ink to create some dimension. I assembled the blooms with a combination of liquid adhesive and thin 3D foam squares.

Using a retired Spellbinders die from my stash, I cut a pink scalloped circle. I attached the circle to the top of my box with foam tape and arranged my floral elements on top. The sentiment is from the Handmade Love Hot Foil Plate. I foiled the plate with gold foil and diecut the sentiments with the coordinating die. I popped up my sentiment with foam squares and finished with some gems from my stash.
