Poinsettia Gift Box

Here is the poinsettia gift box class from Sunday's Your Creations The Big Event Crop, designed and taught by Karen Leonard.

The box and lid are both made by folding squares of paper. In this case we used a whole 12 x 12" sheet of Echo Park - Everybody Loves Christmas, 'Christmas Words' paper and a 11 3/4 x 11 3/4"sheet of Bazzill.

I had made boxes this way before but it was fun to relearn this skill and be shown this neat floral decoration for the lid using ribbon, a 12 x 2" strip of  bright stripes (reverse side) paper (trimmed along both edges with the Fiskars threading water punch) and a doiley. The poinsettia was made in three layers cut from templates, lots of curling, scrunching and inking, then glued together with 3D double-sided foam pads. The centre of the flower is a pearl button and a clear gem.

Thanks Karen, I enjoyed making this box and I have the perfect wrapping for one of my Christmas gifts. I'm sure I will be making more of these too.
