HOW TO

1. Using the die cut from sizzix, run through your machine twice to make two flowers.



2. Using a small sponge, ink the edges with a slightly darker color than your cardstock.



3. At the curve of each petal, cut in on a curve almost to the center. Be careful not to go too far. Curve your cut to the left each time that looks something like ).





4. Using a pencil, dowel, or anything round, roll each petal inward.





5. Assemble the flowers. between each layer, use a dimentional to make the flower more 3D.

Play with the petals until you like the look.

6. Use beads, pearls or rhinestones for center of flower.





7. Using the lid of the tin, trace onto your cardstock. I am using double sided cardstock here,
so I am tracing on the side I am not going to use. Trim the edges to fit the top of the tin.

Because I used lace trim around the tin, I didn't have to be really careful when trimming. Glue the cut out to the top of the tin.



Finish by using your flowers you made (if you don't have this die or a die cutting machine, consider using purchased silk flowers. or a stamp image. I added ribbon, the lace trim and
filled the tin with some yummy goodies. Hope you liked watching this go together and
will give it a try. Don't forget, if you can't find the tins, you can always use small plain candy boxes and decorate them. Thanks for looking. Until later..............
