Watch this video https://youtu.be/jJBwQyyza6g to learn how to shape the Enchanted Mums.
Instructions: View a larger project image here. Cut 6" X 6" squares from the paper collection. Cut one for each treat box you will need. Using a score board, score at 1", 2 1/2", 3 1/2", & 5". Flip paper 90 degrees and score at 1", & 5". Use a bone folder and crease all scored lines flat. On the two sides that are scored four times, snip up to the horizontal lines. To form the bottom of the box, fold in and glue two short tabs to one longer tab on each side. To form the folding lid, glue the one remaining sort tab to the last longer tab on each side. When closed this will make a 1" X 1 1/2" X 4" small treat box.
Cut two of the smallest petals from the mum die from pink cardstock for each flower needed. I cut 2" squares and placed them over the small petal & die cut for just the petal size I needed instead of cutting the entire plate. Ink the edges of the petals with distress ink, then following the video assemble flowers using only two petals for each. Cut one each of the smallest tag for each box from white card stock. Emboss and sponge with distress ink. Stamp the dragonfly vine onto green cardstock with black ink and cut with matching die. Color the wings of dragonflies with V06 & YG06. Color the bodies with YG09. Coat each dragonfly with Wink of Stella. With boxes closed wrap vine around the box pinching it to fit and then add a spot of glue to ends on the underside of the box. Slip this off to dry so it will not adhere to the bottom and can be taken on and off to get the treats inside the box. Glue a name tag with hand printed names and a mum to the top of each vine and let dry. Fill your boxes with treats and slip on the bands to complete this project. These would make wonderful name plaques for a holiday table, filled with after dinner mints or chocolates and placed at each guests place at the table.
