Well now that I have my handy little Martha Stewart scoring tool, I have been experimenting with box patterns. This particular box pattern and flower idea came from Kay over at Creations on Paper.
I photographed the box next to my wallet so you can gauge the actual size. The box is small and is designed to hold 3 Ghirardelli chocolates. The only thing I did differently for the pattern was change the 3 11/16" to 4" on the pattern. The box was very easy to construct as well as the flower. For this flower I used regular scrapbooking paper rather than tissue paper. You have to go over and visit Kay to see her version of the flower made out of tissue paper! It is beautiful!
The belly band is just a strip of paper with the flower hot glued on. So simple, yet so sweet! I must admit, that I should not be playing around with crafts right now, as my house is a mess as well as my garage and yard. I guess there is so much to do I became overwhelmed. I am hoping for some energy to get to the chores tomorrow!!!! I am going to put away all evidence of crafts and hope for the best!
