Cut four Petal Card diecuts with the Big Shot and the Petal Card Die in cardstock of your choice. Trim one "petal" scallop off each diecut at the score line (A). Lay the diecuts face down on your work surface then overlap the scallop on the side opposite of where the scallop was removed onto the straight edge of the die cut (see picture B). Adhere them with Mono Adhesive, Glue Stick or Sticky Strip. This will give you a line of four petal cards glued together. (C)
Turn this over and decorate the sides of your box while it is flat; it's much easier now than later! : ) Then crease all the score llines and assemble your box by adhering the last scallop and straight edge. You're almost finished!
Crease the score lines to make the bottom of your box then fold these scallops in like you close a four flap box (half of each flap will be showing, see pic on left below). You may add a little adhesive to the flaps now if you wish but it will hold some weight even without glue. Now set the box right side up and crease the top flaps and fold in the same manner. Add a beautiful ribbon such as the Pink Satin Ribbon from the Occasions Mini Catalog, and Viola! You're finished!
Now tuck some delicious treat or small but special gift inside, tie on a bow and you're ready for the occasion! Anyone would be delighted to receive such an enchanting little box with a treasure inside!
Great for shower, party or wedding favors also!
My red box features Real Red and Pretty in Pink Cardstock, Sending Love Designer Series Paper (already glittered!) and luscious Pink Satin Ribbon. All products by Stampin' Up!

p.s. Save the scallops you cut off when you make your box; we will be using them for another project with this die! ... to be continued... : )
