Mini Roses Top Note Box

Hello,                                                                                                                                                     Look at what I've made when I couldn't sleep!  I used to read when I couldn't sleep at night.  Now, this is what I made when I couldn't sleep, roses.  When I didn't know what to do or couldn't create anything during the day, I would just punch out flowers from scraps and store them in the container so I can make different flowers when I needed one.  I've made much more mini roses than in this picture.  I used some before I realized to take the picture.

I really like the pizza box style and the top note die cut.  They both are a pair.  Here is my  pizza box with the mini roses.  I used Stampin' Up! Summer Sun card stock for the box.  I thought it was more orange than the yellow sun.  I sponged the mini roses with Stampin' Up! Summer Sun classic ink.  The ink was lighter then the card stock.  I also added glitters on the roses.


Here is the side view.

The box open up the long way.  I didn't really like it.


So I made another box.  For these roses, I sponged Pumpkin Pie classic ink. 

I still wasn't very happy with the result.  But I added goodies in the box any way.  What is better than these chocolate nuggets? Yum!

Thank you so much for visiting!  Have a wonderful day!  It's going to be another beautiful day here in the Delaware Valley.
