More details on the Poinsettia Box
I really appreciated all of the comments I got from the blog hop and through e-mail. I wish I had the time to for a tutorial but time is something I lack. Someone could get rich if they could bottle time and sell it because so many are looking for more of it.
I've had quite a few e-mails with questions on various aspects of the box and I've been responding to them as they come in. I thought I would post some of the answers here in case anyone else is trying to make it.
Question: How did you cut the DP for the box?
Answer: I'm sure there is an easier way than what I did but this is what I did. I cut a petal cone on scrap paper and cut at the score line and then proceeded to cut the other edges so I was left with one panel. I then cut off from each side 1/8". I used that as a template.
Question: When I stamp the leaf you said you used on the poinsettia, it doesn't cover the petal. What did you do?
Answer: I stamped the outer edge of the petals first and then I made a couple of masks and used them to stamp the center and prevent the image from overlapping on a previously stamped leaf. However, I think it really isn't necessary to stamp the center. I only have one petal that shows two different stamped leaves and that could easily be covered with another "petal" from the light bulb.
Question: I think I have the size right on the box, but doesn't close completely on the bottom. Did yours?
Answer: I punched two 2-1/2" circles to conceal the opening from the bottom of the box and inside the box.
Question: What measurements did you use for the box?
Answer: I scored at 2-3/4" and cut off the bottom 1-1/2"
