Everyone I know likes flowers... even paper ones especially at Valentine's Day.
How about this one created using files from Simply Crafty SVGs? I used the box base from the Santa Hat box and the flowers from the Bee Hive files. I added Heart 6, a star and a leaf from the shapes library in SCAL.
The florals, hearts, leaves and sepals were cut using some sketch pad paper. The skycut had no problem cutting the images including the smallest of the centers of the flower. They were all colored using alcohol markers, front and back. I used a star for the sepal on each of the flowers. The petals of the flowers were shaped with the petals going down. All of these pieces are wired and hot glue was used to attach the wire to each flower. You can add some additional details to the wire by wrapping around a skewer if desired.
No changes to the box file were necessary other than copying an additional panel for the front panel since you won't be using the Santa face included with the file. Using the Pattern command, fill the panel pieces with a fun digital paper. The paper used in our sample is from Creative Fabrica. The score lines were changed to DRAW and the scoring tool was used to draw those lines.
Once the pieces are scored and cut, glue the printed panels to the box sides. Glue the two sides of the box together as instructed in the video Sandy has created for putting the box together. The panels were inked using some distress ink in a pink that nearly matched the pink in the flowers. The ink adds another layer of color and interest to the overall box. You can add the ink BEFORE adding to the box sides, or after.
The metallic LOVE stamp is an old retired embossing and die set from Sizzix Cuttlebug. It was cut from a piece of an aluminum soda can scrap.
This project would be easy to replicate and could be finished within a hour or two once the florals are colored.
