Fresh Florals Hexagon Box with Vellum Flowers

This beautiful six sided box with floral embellishment has a finished measurement of 31/2 x 3 x 13/4".  I think the colour combination of Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst is very effective.

Measurements for the base of the box are as follows
Whisper White card stock 103/4 x 41/2"
Scored on long side at 13/4, 31/2, 51/4, 7, 83/4, 101/2"
Scored on short side at 13/4, 31/2"

This is the template for the base of the box once the card stock has been scored and cut.  The strip at the top has been scored again into triangles, to do this place a mark at the half way point on each 13/4" panel, so place the template back onto the scoring board and mark at
7/8, 25/8, 43/8, 61/8, 77/8, 95/8"
From this central point score two diagonal lines down to meet the horizontal score line below making a series of small triangles as shown in the picture above.

Cut six pieces of DSP 15/8 x 15/8" and glue these to the six  square panels running across the middle of the template, these will be the sides of the base once the box is assembled. 

This picture shows how the bottom of the box is constructed and glued together.

This is how the triangular features will look once the base of this gift box has been assembled.


The above picture shows a template of the box lid showing how the lid is scored and cut.
DSP   11 x 23/4"
Scored on long side at 17/8, 33/4, 51/2, 71/8, 87/8, 101/2"
Scored on short side at 13/4"

Glue the two side edges together and construct the top in exactly same way as the bottom was glued together.

This shows the completed box, ribbon has been glued around the box and a bow attached, the three flowers have been made out of Vellum. To make the three flowers you will need six pansy shapes punched using the Pansy Punch, each shape was sponged with Berry Burst ink the petals need to be curled back using a bone folder and then layered together.  Attach the flowers to the lid of the box with Dimensionals and Wink of Stella gives a little sparkle to the edges of the flowers.
