Bliss Box...

Happy Wednesday,

I thought I should make a new box after all the wonderful comments I got on the old ones I posted a couple of weeks ago!  I seem to be playing with the Swirl Bliss die a lot so thought this would be the ideal candidate for the box.

I stared by scoring a piece of ivory card into 5 sections 5 x 10cm adding a flap for the sides and top / base.  I then cut the strip die form the Swirl Bliss into this using one die cut per panel.



I then simply folded the box together punching holes in the centre of each top flap and threading ombre ribbon through the holes to close the box.  The base is made by adding a hexagon to the flaps at the bottom to give a solid base ( just draw around the completed box to get the size for the base)

















To decorate the box I stamped the CE shaded orange blossom flowers onto pixie powdered paper and cut them out using the matching die.  I repeated this with the shaded orange blossom leaves stamps and cut these out with the matching dies.


I shaped the flowers and leaves and added ta smaller spray on the top to seal the box as shown.  I added a larger spray on the 'front' of the box adding stick on pearls in the centre.






Enjoy...

  24. This is stunning John. I have never made boxes (apart from the flatter ones to pop a deeper card into).
    Please would you do a youtube tutorial on making this or something similar as I really have no idea where to begin, and I dare say I am not on my own.

    Lots of hugs Helen xxx

    Hi |John,
    this is bliss indeed. All your boxes are so wonderful and you make it look so easy. Which it isn't at all, at least not when I do it and mine don't look half as beautiful as yours.
    Hugs, Rose

  48. Hi John. Love this box. I am hoping I may be able to do something similar with the existing dies that I have. I hope you managed to cut the whole box out of one sheet of A4 card. Thanks for the recipe for this one.
