Again, no stamping. We used the remnants of my Winter Bright Simply Scrappin' Kit. We also decided to add some Jumbo Pewter eyelets, and ribbon for handles. I love it!!! Thanks again for that suggestion Michele! I think they all turned out great.

Cut 12x12 cardstock down to 10"x12". Score at 2" and 8" on the 10" side (cardstock is situated as 'portrait'). Score at 5" and 7" on the 12 side (cardstock is situated as 'landscape'). Cut the two shortest score marks up to the line, and fold your box to assemble. I used Sticky Strip to attach it all together.
Top flap is 6x6. Score at 1" and then 3". Tape the 1" flap to the back of the box. I layered designer papers on white cardstock for the top flap, so it wouldn't be so plain, but would still remain sturdy. Kept it closed with a little piece of velcro.
NO STAMPING on this project!!! Can you believe it? Turned it out in like 5 minutes....and most of that was tying that bow.

For this card, I embossed the flower on Shimmery White cardstock and cut it out. Then I spritzed that with water, and painted the flower with reinker and an aqua painter. I was trying the "Watercolored Roses" technique, but failed miserably. I'll keep trying...
