Blossom Box

Since the flooding in our basement, I decided to move all of my Stampin' Up! stuff upstairs temporarily. I did end up leaving my stamp sets downstairs. They are in a spot where I can get to them easily.
I had a chance to play with the new Blossom Box Die. A lot of people have been having problems making this because of all of the folds. The only problem I had was that the score marks were not as deep as they should have been. I had a hard time seeing where some of them were. I was able to get this done on my first attempt though. It is such a pretty box.

I wanted to let you see this box in a few different ways. The one above has the top pushed down in, which is the most secure way to use this box.

The picture above has what it looks like embellished. I used the 5 petal punch, boho blossoms punch, the largest scallop punch, and lastly the large flower punch. The last 2 I am not sure are named correctly. Like I said, my stamping stuff is upstairs and my computer I am working on is in the basement.
This last picture shows you what the blossom box looks like popped up and the embellishment on the side. In case you are wondering, I used the Beyond The Garden DSP to create this box. I love how it turned out. It did take me a while to make, but it was my first one. I bet the more you make the faster you would get.
I am so glad I bought this die. I love it! Tell me what you think by leaving a comment.

Now go-n-stamp!!
