Little box

I had this little flower -


It’s been sitting on my desk waiting for me to make something with it. So i decided, finally, on a box with the flower on top. This is what came of that.

box 005b




  • match box template that I had downloaded from Mel Stampz blog but you can also get one from Mirkwood Designs.
  • 26 gauge brass jewelry wire (Wal-Mart)
  • beads (dollar tree jewelry kit – butterfly knob and bead feet)
  • glue I used for attaching things was Monomulti except the butterfly knob which is stuck onto the drawer with a 3D Dot square.
  • The flower was cut from Blick’s Sulphite Drawing paper and colored with Distress ink and the flower center is embroidery floss.

The box is very fragile due to the lightweight paper but the paper was so pretty and it will not be doing any heavy duty work, I figured I could live with it like that.
