Paper Flower Box & Mini Cards

Wow!  September 1st.....?!  So much going on this month!!  First, there's a new challenge over at Stampin' Celebration today!!  I loved the photos Rochelle put together for us!

Here is what I was inspired to create:

Who wouldn't love to receive a box full of fun little 3x3 cards and envelopes?!  This would make a great teacher, neighbor or hostess gift.

Don't you love this flower?  I've been wanting to try these paper flowers and finally did!  You can download a pdf of the paper flower tutorial here.  They are so easy (4 simple steps) and look so elegant!

So, now that you know how to make the flower, let's talk about the box!  I wanted something similar to the Fancy Favor Box but not as deep.  I started out with a  piece of cardstock measuring 4.5 x 11.5".  I used my Simply Scored tool and scored it at 1.5" 5", 6.5" and 10".  I then turned it and scored it once at 1.5".  I cut the center bottom flap and cut off one of the corners as well.  Once it's all scored and cut, it should look like this:

I used my bone folder to get a good crease and decorated the front of the box.  I folded it together and adhered it with Sticky Strip.  I added a 1" wide handle after it was assembled.  The 3x3 cards and envelopes fit perfectly inside!  If you make one, I'd love to hear about it!

That box is beautiful by itself, so filling it with cute little cards is just perfect!
