See the video for how to cut the flaps and make the box
For the box top cut Poinsettia designer series paper 5x5 and score on all four sides an 3/4" Cut and angle the corners to make the flaps
Glue the box bottom and top together using Alene's Quick Dry Tacky Glue
Cut a piece of Real Red card stock 5.5 x 6.5, mist it lightly with water using the Stampin Mister. Place the outline and embossing flower pieces onto the card stock and run it through the cut and emboss machine.
(the light misting makes the embossing more defined)
STamp three of the Pine Bough stamp with Garden Green onto Whisper White card stock. When stamping stamp once full strength then move the stamp slightly to the right of center and stamp again the slightly to the left of center and stamp again without re-inking.
Die cut the boughs out with the die from the set.
Before building the poinsettia use the bone folder to give the petals some shape then attach the layers to one another with a single mini glue dot in the center, off setting the petals on each layer.
Add a set of beaded pearls to the center
Place a mini glue dot on the front side end tip of each of the pine boughs and attach them to the back of the flower where desired.
Cut a 12" piece of Silver Edged Ribbon and create a bow by using glue dots to get the shape you want and then attach this to the back of the flower with mini glue dots.
Attach the finished flower to the box front with one dimensional in the center
Punch out a sentiment tag from Whisper White using the Label Me Fancy punch and stamp the sentiment with Garden Green ink, Stamp the sentiment again with Real Red and cut off the Thank You and attach over the green part with mini dimensionals
Attach the tag to the box front with regular adhesive.
