I skipped the Royal Challenge yesterday due to the Pals Blog Hop. If you did not go through the Hop, I hope you will do so. There are some great projects. Today the Royal Challenge is “Not A Card”. I love 3D projects, but am not good and creating my own. For the one today I cheated a bit. Not Really!! I created a table centerpiece using the new, and super cute, Mini Shipping Boxes that are in the catalog. I hope you will like it.
I got the idea from the Pop Up Box cards. I created this using the same idea of the cross pieces as used on the pop up box card, and then adhering my flowers to those. It isn’t super good from top view, but you can see the method I used.
I did not add filler to the bottom of the box so that you could see my construction. If this were my table decoration, I would put some green tissue paper in the bottom to help blend the cross pieces that hold the flowers.
I used both of the Daisy punches and punched in Daffodil Delight and the Perennial Essence Vellum. The stems and leaves are punched using dies from the Bouquet Bunch Dies. The tag is from that die set as well. The sentiment on the tag is from Beautiful Bouquet stamp set. All of my adhering besides the green strips in the box are done with glue dots. Glue Dots are my heroes!!
For the cross pieces inside the box, the box is 4″ wide. I cut three strips 5 X 3/4 and scored each end at 1/2″. I then folded on the score lines and used Tear & Tape to adhere those to the box inside. Then all of the flowers stems are adhered to those pieces with glue dots.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you liked seeing something a bit different today. All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the post.
