Blossom Box Template from Every Thing Creative

I love the ease of templates!  Every Thing Creative has made this one SO easy for me!

Blossom Boxes aren't the easiest thing to create from scratch.  Trust me - it's not something I woud ever think to do, for sure!  That's what makes this template magical to me... I printed this template twice to create the following treasures... and I can guarantee that I'll be printing again and again in the future for the perfect packaging.

Snowy Gift Box:

I printed the Blossom Box template on a sheet of kraft cardstock.  I used white pigment ink to stamp my snowflakes and ink the edges of the box for a frosty look.  Super simple!
Tip: It was simplist to get the box together by using a stylus, a ruler and a mousepad (for a soft, impressionable surface) to create even scores along all the marks.  I also used a very strong adhesive to put this together - ATG worked great, but you could also use sticky strip.

Bloom Box:

This one was so easy, I had it complete in about 5 minutes from print to finish.  I printed this one on patterned paper.  It's double-sided and heavy card, so it holds up well to the scoring... and is gorgeous on the inside from it's coordinating side!

Add a coordinating tag to make this a gift someone will be ready to dive into... The Happy Birthday tag was created uing the larger Open Poppy stamp.  I colored both sides of the cardstock and trimmed out carefully.  To give the open petals an upward turn, I cut the petals from the edge to the center (about where the dark poppy "seeds" are).  I colored and trimmed out a small peony and completely covered in glue.  I added Diamond Dust to the center and allowed to dry completely.  It looks like a gem!  I used this to cover the poppy center and folded the petals upwards to make a realistic paper flower.  I really loved how this came together... I can see me making this again in other colors to suit any project.

Thanks for visiting!  If you create with the template, I'd love to know what you think too.  Stop by and leave me a comment.
