Playful Petals - Scor pal Box.......

Not more Boxes I hear you say.....

I just can't help it. Boxes are so easy to make. They can sometimes take up quite abit of cardstock and time to make, but not with this one.

It's actually one piece of 12 x 12 cardstock.

I used the Playful Petals Stamp Set and Tea Party Designer Papers. You can see the Flowers close up in this photo.

The large flower was stamped twice on Almost Amethyst in versamark and embossed with Stampin Up White Embossing Powder. I'm not sure if the embossing powder is a detail one but it sure does work well for this Stamp Set. The images are a very fine image and yet the embossing white doesn't clog up. I cut out parts of the flowers and coloured in parts with SU Markers.

I used a Square Nestie to top the box, which is only glued to the left hand side. Then I added a layer of Pretty in Pink, then all the flower layers.

The centre of the flower has a Rhinestone added. Before adding the Square Nestie, I added the ribbon around the box. This leaves the ribbon loose and therefore enabling you to re open the box.

When you untie the bow, the box opens up by itself, just like this.

You can see the Scor-pal Magazine here.

You can find the Origami Box instructions here.

Hope you get to make one as well,

Thanks for looking,
