A flower box for Mother’s Day

Today I’m sharing another of my projects for Mother’s Day gifts I have for our stand at the Langsett Barn Craft Fair (we’re next there on Mother’s Day itself – 18 March). This little box contains some lavender scented goodies and so I chose purples for my colour scheme.

The Wisteria Wonder box was stamped with different size doilies in Elegant Eggplant ink before it was assembled. Little Leaves were die cut from Pear Pizzazz card, a couple cut away and the remaining ones adhered direct to the front of the box. Large flowers were created for the lid and the box front by punching the Scallop Flower from Elegant Eggplant card and plain Doily Triple shapes from Wisteria Wonder card. The Doily Triple shapes were stamped with the small doily in Elegant Eggplant ink and the petals of all flowers were shaped to five dimension. A Wisteria Wonder Printed Brad was put through the centre of one flower and the separate flowers popped up on dimensionals on the box lid. The other flower was topped off with a large Pearl and popped up in the same way over the leaves on the box front. A couple of smaller flowers were created by punching large and small Boho Blossoms from Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder card. The petals were snipped and shaped and the flowers were layered up adhered directly then popped up on dimensionals on the box front and finished with small Pearls in the centres. A few remaining little leaves cut off earlier were adhered, tucked behind the large flower. The sentiment was stamped  in Elegant Eggplant ink onto Wisteria Wonder card and punched out with the Word Window. This was adhered direct to a Modern Label punched from Elegant Eggplant card and then popped up on dimensionals onto an Extra-Large Oval punched from Pear Pizzazz, then onto the box front. Teeny Pearls were added either side of the sentiment to finish.

I’ll pop back tomorrow to show how I sized the box for the contents.
