A floral arrangement!!

Morning peeps. I finally gave in and made one of these popular 3d pop up box jobbys. It was born from a sift through my scrap box and armed with bits a pieces of pink papers this is what I did...


Some of the scraps are nitwits, some were magazine freebies and I have a sneaking suspicion some were MME, so a smorgasbord of scraps!!




 I used a Die-namics  set for the flowers and various leafy dies and finished with some seam binding bows and pearls and gems from my stash.

I have to say that although the actual body of the box was easy to make the cutting, faffing and arranging took yonks!! However, I am pleased with my efforts and hope that the Friend for whom it was made will be pleased too when she gets it 

I would like to enter these brilliant challenges

This is gorgeous Sarah. I love the pretty paper you have used.
I keep meaning to make one of these. I am so indecisive it would take me ages to decide where to add the embellishments!

Such pretty papers and gorgeous flowers, Sarah! I really love these boxes but they look so complicated! However the (and I quote) ‘cutting, faffing and arranging’ was clearly worth it! xx

Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

I agree Sarah they are very time consuming! Thing is everybody seems to love them. I took some to a recent craft sale and sold several & got 3 ordered which I then had to deliver.
Your card is beautiful, I'm sure the recipient will love it!
Hugs

Sarah, beautiful colors, marvelous work on the box. If this is your first try, I'm impressed. They intimidate the heck out of me, but are so popular. This one is so summery with the soft lilac color and all the pretty posies popping up out of the box and decorating it as well. Happy Tuesday, and nice to see you in the Playground! (where I'm trying to visit more often!) TFS & Hugs
