Ooh, I’m so excited to show you this week’s 3D Thursday project. A Flower Box Card.
It was actually only my second attempt at making one but I am really happy with how it turned out.
I made this one using Perfect Plum card stock. The DSP is from Have a Cuppa.
So, the base is made from card stock measuring 10 1/2″ x 6″. Score the long edge every 2 1/2″‘s ( 2.5, 5, 7.5 & 10), rotate and score again at 2 1/2″. Fold the single score line the opposite way to the vertical lines. You will notice the ‘squares’ either side of this score line are slightly different in size. Cut up the shorter score lines, creating the top flaps. There will be a small tab that needs cutting from the top but leave the bottom one as this is the tab you adhere to form the box base.
Add the layers of DSP to the top flaps. I actually cut three 2 1/4″ squared and one 2 1/4″ wide but slightly longer so that it supported the back flap to remain upright. I adhered the longer piece of DSP after I had made the actual box up so it covered the join slightly too.
I cut four strips 1″ x 3 1/2″ and scored half an inch in from each end. These were folded and the adhered inside the top of the box.
Using Perfect Plum, Rich Razzleberry and Real Red I stamped different flowers from both Petite Petals and Flower Shop.
With the Flower Fair Framelit I cut out a few leaves of Old Olive card stock.
The flowers and leaves were arranged and attached to the cross sections inside the box with thin strips of Perfect Plum. I generally tried to start at the back, slightly higher then worked to the front.
I finished it off with some candy dots and a sentiment.
I think I may have to make some more of these as I had so much fun. I hope you do too.
Happy crafting, it’s nearly the weekend. Yay.
