4. Open out each cut and scored piece. Cut along the vertical centre scoreline from the base as far as the intersecting horizontal scoreline. Trim off the tabbed fold at the base (as on the right hand side in this picture). Repeat with the other piece. Decorate as preferred.

petal cone die box - step 66. Using your preferred adhesive, apply it to the outside outer edge of one of the base flaps, fold in to the centre and press the opposite flap down on top of it (this ensures that no adhesive is exposed on the inside of your box base). Apply adhesive to the inside outer edges of the two remaining base flaps and fold them into the centre. Fold the petals of the box lid together, overlapping them to secure. Finish decorating your box as preferred.

  1. Hi, really pleased you put the tutorial on, I have just ordered the cone die and would have had to work it out from sample you gave all of us. It was great getting together last week for the display book, it would be nice if we could do it again before next year, i am sure we could think of a good reason!!!
    Thanks Beverley
