Heart a Bloom treat box

Happy Friday! A friend needed a few little boxes to put on the girls desks with chocolates inside and asked if I could come up with a few for her. That is an easy request so I got to work and came up with these. I used the bloom in the digital set Heart Abloom as I can enlarge it to fit the boxes. 

The measurements for this box are easy. 
The bottom: cut a piece of cardstock 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 inches. Score at 1 inch on all sides. Fold in the edges and adhere to form base. 
The top:  cut a piece of cardstock 4 7/8 x 4 7/8 (now I might have that last part wrong. Basically two little tick marks from the 3/4 mark if the 7/8 isn't the correct conversion) Score at 1 inch on all sides and adhere to form the top. 
The belly band I took a piece of maroon cardstock 1 inch thick and wrapped around the box and adhered together in the middle. The bloom covers the over lay so no need to worry about that. 

Colored the bloom with various Copic markers and then added to the belly band. A few layers to the lid with some swiss dots for texture and voila. She can add whatever she needs to at this point but I think she will keep them as is since its a surprise. :-)

It's stunning Stacy, I love the beautiful coloured flower and the idea of using it on top of the gorgeous box.
That's one of the benefits of a digital image, you can make it as big or small as you want.
Thank you so much for the inspiration and have a great weekend.

Stacy, you are so good at making these little boxes. These are so lovely. Your colouring of the flowers makes them look so real! Love the colour combination.

Stacy, SO pretty! The blossom is just stunning! and because it’s on the belly band like this it really pops even more. A lovely thoughtful creation!
