Scallop circle flower and gift box

 Isn't this the most gorgeous box and flower. We made this box complete with belly band and flower.
 The flower is made from 3 large scallop circles and 1 medium scallop.  I made a cut after every second scallop and using the stamp in mist spray i moulded into curled petals. I curled each circle and blasted them with the heat gun.
Glimmer brad through the smallest scallop circle and foam pads were added to each layer to give it height.

 I love the way this box opens and it was so simple to make.
 I promised my ladies the measurements as they are keen to make more.
Here we go........
 First you need a piece of card measuring 11 7/8 inches by 8 3/4 inches.
Along the 11 7/8 you will need to score at 11/2 and 4 1/2 inches turn the card and score the same measurements from the other side.
Along the 8 3/4 side score at 2 7/8 and 5 7/8.
Going back along the 11 7/8 score at 2 1/2 but only to the first score line as diagram shown. Repeat on opposite side the turn card and do the same.

  Sorry the template is alittle scryffy it has been used several times.

Cut as the diagram as shown.

I used red tape as this is much stronger than normal double sided tape.

Make the centre box.
 Measure a length of card long enough tofit around the box then decorate.
If you need any help with this project please dont hesitate to contact me. Take care and keep crafting julie x
