Wow, I am still amazed at all the fun things you can make with the new Artiste cartridge! Remember when I made the 'thanks' card? Well on that same page in the handbook, I noticed an interesting 3D item. See that flower next to the thanks card on the B key? I looked at the corresponding page in the assembly book, and saw that it is a kind of explosion flower box! It is not glued together, but the outside of the flower goes around the top of the box when gathered up, and it makes a 3D flower. Cute, huh? I just had to try it!
I first cut the base piece on Fit to Page, and noticed that it cut out at 4 1/4", so then I cut the flower at the same size to fit. I'm using the CTMH Pemberley Papers, I love these!
I inked the edges of the box and flower with Bamboo ink, and added some cute brown and tan Sparkles to the flower randomly just to give it some shine. Then I gathered up the box and pushed the top up through the middle of the flower. What do you think?
What a fun way to package a gift of jewelry or some candy! Thanks for visiting today, and please leave me a comment to let me know what you think about this project. Happy Crafting!
