It may not be covered in gold or precious gems, but any friend will feel like they are getting the royal treatment if you give them this box. This box was created using the Petal Cone die that was originally released in the 2010 Occasions Mini catalog, and it really is quite easy. Cut out two of the petal cones to assemble into the box. I cut the patterned paper using the Tasteful Trims die, and then cut the angle after I had it attached to the top edge of the closed box. You can't see it in the picture, but I used two of the half scallops under two of the opposing top flaps to decorate the top a bit more.
One tip that I have to share though – don't confuse your silicone pad with the premium crease pad when you're cutting out your cone sections. You end up with a lovely petal cone section cut out of silicone if you do that – ask me how I know! I can't even claim that I was making it BC (before coffee – as my friend Heather says).
These boxes would make a lovely hostess gift, or even could be turned into an ornament to hang on the tree. You could decorate the outside to look spooky and put Halloween treats into it; the possibilities are endless!
