I'm happy to share this cute box with you today. I saw a Halloween themed one that I thought was darling. I wanted to make something similar and this provided the perfect opportunity.I didn't secure the poinsettia on top because I don't have anything in the box but you get the idea. I used the Petal Cone die and cut three of the cones for this box. Every other flap has the red scallop border.
To make the poinsettia, I used the Island Floral die, the Stocking Accents die, and the 5 Petal Flower punch. The light bulb from the Stocking Accents die is a perfect shape and is a little smaller, complimenting the 3-petal cluster from the Island Floral die. The second layer from the top has a mix of the single petal from the Island Floral die and the light bulb, because it is true of poinsettias to have larger and smaller sizes. I used the medium leaf stamp from the French Foliage stamp set to help give it the right look.
