Bring Back Beautiful Petal Box

Good Tuesday Morning Peeps!

Today I have a fun little petal box to share with you. I made this for the Flourishes Bring Back Beautiful Challenge this is challenge #3 and is the beauty of as gift. I got my template for this box from Here.

I am trying hard to achieve the vintage feel/look that is so popular right now, I think I do "cute" better.

I used crumb cake and printed out the template directly onto the card stock. The bottom of the box is super simple. No problem there at all. Next the top of the box, it is a bit more challenging, to say the least!

I used the vintage "Deck the Halls" DS paper for my "petals". I sponged the box heavily with crumb cake ink, it still didn't hide all the lines that printed from the template, for the next one, I need to try and figure that little problem out. I don't see how you could not print the template or how you could use the other side. but I will have to investigate that further.

I used some of the new Cherry Cobbler seam binding for my bow on the top and let it hang down the edges. The sentiment is from the Bells and Boughs stamp set and I used more of the Deck the Halls paper for the little front piece. I used a 1 inch strip of paper and scored every 1/2 inch. I added a antique brad to the center and used some icicle stickles around the sentiment and the round folded fan.

Another view:

Well, that is all from me today. Whatcha think of this box? Should I try another? Maybe in the candy cane paper?

Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
