I thought I should make a new box after all the wonderful comments I got on the old ones I posted a couple of weeks ago! I seem to be playing with the Swirl Bliss die a lot so thought this would be the ideal candidate for the box.
I stared by scoring a piece of ivory card into 5 sections 5 x 10cm adding a flap for the sides and top / base. I then cut the strip die form the Swirl Bliss into this using one die cut per panel.
I then simply folded the box together punching holes in the centre of each top flap and threading ombre ribbon through the holes to close the box. The base is made by adding a hexagon to the flaps at the bottom to give a solid base ( just draw around the completed box to get the size for the base)
To decorate the box I stamped the CE shaded orange blossom flowers onto pixie powdered paper and cut them out using the matching die. I repeated this with the shaded orange blossom leaves stamps and cut these out with the matching dies.
I shaped the flowers and leaves and added ta smaller spray on the top to seal the box as shown. I added a larger spray on the 'front' of the box adding stick on pearls in the centre.
