Instructions: This is a gift box decorating idea using vellum sunflowers. The Classic Sunflower Collection flowers and yellow vellum papers were used here, but you can use any color you want. For this special technique, you have to have Versa Mark or any clear ink pad or glue pad to use embossing powder. Stamp the Classic Sunflower Precut set on vellum and then add the embossing powder. I love the white most but other colors look pretty too. Then take off excess powder back to the bottle. Use your heat gun to melt the powder to emboss. Die cut with Classic Sunflower Die.
For this flower I did not use any flower shaping tools but use my thumb and index figure to make the shape. As per shown in the picture we just need to fold these petals inside like in a cup shape. We need these cup shaped petals for center but keep couple of large petals as it is. Since I have used three different color embossing powders, I used green one in the bottom and then gold and white but you can so as per you want. Then for the center I have used some fiber crumbs in purple color then used glitter glue on that crumbs and before that glue dries I pour some seed beads.
To make the leaves, do the same embossing technique with the deep green Romantique Garden Paper using Open Leaf precut set and Classic leaf die. Then using one of the paper from the Sunflower Collection create center layers using one of the sentiment ticket and spellbinders label twenty die. Die cut 2 decorative heart toppers from the Raindrops on Roses Dies.
Then on a plain gift box, first use a strip of burlap then add two of the raindrops and roses die cuts on top as pictured. In the middle add two layers of labels 20 die cuts and then the sentiment ticket. On one side create the floral cluster using three large flowers and all small flowers as shown. Add bow and embellishments.
