Pretty Petals

I’m always had a thing for little boxes. They are just so cute.

Lately I’ve been diggin’ pillow boxes. I had one of my desk the other day and the end of it reminded me of a petal. Which got my mind whirling. What would a bunch of them look like together? Could I make a flower?

So here it is. My petal box flower. It’s a fun and unique gift wrap option for a bunch of little things. There are seven petals on it. Odd numbers always look so much better don’t you think? There’s also seven days in the week. Hmmm… how about filling it with treats or notes, one for each day of the week? It’s a possibility.


To create this fun flower from pillow boxes, I used a pillow box die and put together seven little pillow boxes. You can use a template but using the die really makes things precise and speeds things up. I put together seven in NO TIME! The fun papers are from Lily Bee Design.

Once the pillow boxes are assembled, I held them together at the inner edges with Glue Dots. The flower is tied together with some tulle for stability and also to hold on the tiny little stamped tag.

I created this fun box to share on the Lily Bee Blog the other day. Stop by and check it out if you have the time.
