Flower-topped Blossom Box
I couldn't wait to try out the new Blossom Box die for the Big Shot. The instructions are clear (I was able to assemble the box correctly the first time through!) and it's a really cute favor. I used Cheerful Treat dsp (a hostess freebie with a qualifying $150 order) and tied on a tag (using a Tiny Tags stamp with the Medium Jewelry Punch) with White Baker's Twine.
To make the flower: Punch 8 Fancy Flowers, spritz with water and crumple up tightly. Unfold the flowers and pile them on top of each other. Poke a hole in the middle and insert a silver brad (it's a tight fit, but you'll be able to open the legs a little bit). Starting with the top flower, squish it all toward the middle as tightly as possible. Repeat with the other seven flowers. Then spread out the layers as much as you like!
