A4 Sheet Box - Paper Flower Topper

I created this box to match the card I gave to my friend Anita which I posted here. I have hidden a gift card inside....thought this added a little bit of a surprise. Below I have taken photos of how I made the flower topper. Fun and easy. This will probably be the end of my tutorials for a while.....can't get into a habit. :-)

The box I used SU Pacific Point which I stamped with a flower and greeting from the SU Good Friend set. The papers I am sure are from the SU Good morning Sunshine Design Papers. I have added glitter to petals of each flower but that has shown in the photo. Also coloured Good Friend with yellow sakura pen which of course turned green.

I cut five strips 8cm x 1.5cm. To create each petal place a little double sided tape on to the back of the top of the strip. Now pull the the top end down to meet the bottom end, overlap a little and adhere.

One petal completed....four more to go.

To create the flower - on the first petal at the base I place approx 1cm square of double sided tape then put the next petal on top of this. Then repeated with another 1cm square of double sided tape and attached the next petal.

Then I hid all the messy ends with a cream paper flower and a wonderful ladybug split pin that I had received from Deborah (Cards and Things) and had been saving for someone special.
