Paper Flower on Bitty Box

This SU exclusive die makes Bitty Boxes with special messages simple and easy. Finished box size: 2-3/8" x 2-3/8" x 3/4".

Box inside: Messages to send. Note: This box will hold 2 pieces of Square chocolates.

Accordion page details: The accordion is 2" x 8" long, scored every 2". To create the various depth of color for the flower: simply randomly "stamp off".

Project components: The only place that needed sticky tape for the Bitty Box was the side flaps.

The Flower is a strip 1" x 12", punch one side using the Scallop Edge Punch, then score every scallop. Fold mountain/valley. Apply sticky tape to the ends to form a "ring" - see photo on the left. Get the 1-3/8" Circle ready with a pool of Tombow adhesive. By pinching opposite ends each side of the "ring", wrestle and push down toward the center to make the flower. Carefully lift and position over the punched circle. Hold down for (1) minute. Whew! Now place the 1/2" punched circle on top using Tombow adhesive. (or a nice large brad would be good!)
