No Tools Flower Box


Ingredients:

Card/Paper: Petals & Paisleys Designer Paper, Ballet Blue & Whisper White card
Ink: Ballet Blue
Stamps: Seeing Spots
Other: White flat backed pearl from the Pretties Kit
Box Size: 9cm x 9cm x 3cm deep


Method:

I made the box with Whisper White card for the base, and a sheet of Petals & Paisleys Designer Paper for the lid, using the method from my tutorial here. The scalloped circles were cut with Classic Circle Nestabilities in the Cuttlebug. The flower was made from a different sheet of the Petals & Paisleys designer paper, using the Curled Tip Petal template and my No Tools Flower method - click on the tabs above for the method and the template. Also click on the tool substitute tab if you have no flower making tools. To make the centre of the flower I stamped a dotted circle from the Seeing Spots stamp set in Ballet Blue, and punched it out with a 1/2" circle punch. Shaped it a little with a large ball tool to cup it up. Finished with the flat backed pearl.

How do you use your Nesties in your Cuttlebug? I just got my first set and have seen many different suggestions on sandwiching them in the Cuttlebug. What plates did you use? I'd appreciate anything you'd like to share. Thanks, Cheryl

I love your tutorial on making the various flowers. I'm going to try them all! I will cut out the petals using SCAL. You should go to the Sure Cuts alot forum and post a link there. There are a bunch of us on there who love flowers.
