This was made initially just for fun as i have this gift box cut on one of my Cricut cartridges and wanted to try it out but half way through the Totally Tilda challenge was posted and it was to use handmade flowers on a project. The flower i made from scratch by cutting out love hearts and curling the edges, cutting the bottoms off so the flower doesn't sit too far out and then attaching them one by one to create the finished flower. As most of you probably know i do this all the time and love the finished effect. I usually make them a lot smaller so i made this one a lot bigger and more open than my usual. I finished off with covering in Glossy Accents and then a sprinkle of Martha Stewart white glitter and a little gem in the middle. The leaves were cut from the Cricut Storybook Cartridge. The image is coloured using pro-markers. I ran the box through my Cuttlebug before assembling and added a blue liner to the inside.
