Painted Petals DSP Card Gift Box.

At my recent Stampin Up! Party that my friend Olga hosted for me, I demonstrated this card gift box and gave it to her as a thank you for hosting the party. For her gift I had used the purple paper, so I thought this time I would use the blue. The embellishment on the flower has retired, but you could use the Something Borrowed embellishment which is very similar.

It contains six 4x4 inch assorted cards and envelopes, all using the Painted Petals DSP and Stamp Set.

The finished box measures 4.5 inches x 4.5 inches.

Box Measurements 

The box measures 7.5 inches x 7.5 inches, score at 1.5 inches all sides. 

The lid is 7.5 inches PLUS 1/16 of an inch x 7.5 PLUS 1/16 of an inch (hope that makes sense), this makes the lid a tiny bit bigger to fit on top of the base. I cut a square of contrasting card stock and stuck it inside the lid for a bit of stability.
Score 1.5 inches all sides.
I then cut off 1.5cm (cm not inches) all around the lid so it is shorter and you can see the blue base.

I have used the now retiring Blossom Punch to make the flower on the lid. You would have to be quick if you wish to order it as things are selling out fast. I'm very upset this punch is retiring.
