This box has been finished in my mind for several days now, I just needed to actually finish it by adding the embellishments. My niece's birthday was yesterday and she had asked for a specific necklace. Well, I needed a box to put it in, so it was the perfect opportunity to just FINISH this box already!!
The box itself is really easy and you can easily get 2 boxes per one sheet of cardstock.
Here are the measurements:
Start with cardstock 7-1/4" x 4".
Score the long side at 3/4", 3-1/4", 4" and 6-1/2".
Score the short side at 3/4" and 3-1/4".
The measurements and inspiration for this project were found HERE. Thanks Becky!
To make the flower topper, I used my Big Shot and the Fun Flowers Bigz Die. I lightly sprayed water on each flower piece and then scrunched them up in my hand. I let them dry and then attached them all together (and to the belly band) using a small silver brad. The flowers held their shape after they dried. So pretty!
