Flowering Friendship Container

Hi everyone! I am back to share another project using Eileen Hull's newest Paper Flower Party Collection! I wanted to decorate a container and fill it with goodies for a friend so I started with this empty container.


I measured and cut patterned cardstock to fit but my container was slightly bigger than the cardstock so I cut a small strip to cover the empty space. Since I'm adding an initial over the strip of cardstock it won't be noticeable.


Next I cut out flowers and leaves from the following diecuts: Rolled Flower 3 PK, Romance Flower and Spring Leaves.


I inked the edges of the flowers and shaped with a stylus.


I started with the smallest petal section of the flower and started rolling and shaping as I went. Once I got the flower the way I wanted I glued together.


Next I added trim and the letter to the front of the container along with some punched flowers, Dew Drops and a button.


The lid of the container I adhered a doily and the Rolled Flower 3 PK and added two of the larger leaves to the flower along with a couple of buttons and a dew drop to the center of the flower.


I adhered gathered tulle and twine in the bare spots of the lid.


The yellow flowers are from the Romance Flower diecut I wadded up four of the flowers and then added a brad to the center of the flower and then shaped.


The other two yellow Romance Flower diecuts I wadded up and then flattened back out, folded in half and rolled to create a flower bud.


I added the smaller spray of leaves from the Spring Leaves diecut to the rolled flowers and finished off with pearl sprays and two pearl pins. Now all I have to do is fill it up with goodies. :-)

If you have any questions about this project please let me know.


Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is awesome and enjoy creating!
