Mum Gift Box

Hi everyone! I can’t believe next week will be Thanksgiving?! Then we hop right into all things Christmas! Yikes! Have you started decorated your homes for Christmas? I want to but haven’t dug out all my Christmas decorations…even though I really want to. Anyways, I want to share a Fall project I created for Eileen Hull (before I jump all in on Christmas) using the Geometric Box Diecut and the Sunflower Diecut. Let’s get started!

First, I cut three of each of the medium and small flowers from the Sunflower Diecut. I crinkled the flowers with my hand and then shaped the petals with tweezers and a Stylus. I adhered each one on top of each other, starting with all the medium flowers followed by the smaller flowers.

I applied Adhesive Sheets on both sides of the Mat Board along with patterned cardstock ( you will need to cut out two geometric panels and one bottom piece). I adhered the panels together and placed and glued the bottom in place.

I adhered lace around the top of the box and placed the flower with added gem to the center, leaves, cording and glittered berry sprigs to finish this project.

This project came together quickly and if you didn’t want to use it as a gift box you could place a battery operated candle inside and it would make a beautiful home decor piece.

Also if you need ideas for the upcoming holidays be sure to stop by Eileen Hull’s blog to be blown away by the creativity of her teams! You can find those posts HERE and HERE.
