To highlight my punched flower, I attached it to an origami box. Shelli Gardner showed us a cute origami box at the 2009 convention and my box is similar. You really cannot mail cards very well with this 3-D flower, however, it is perfect for a box! I used the scallop trim border punch to punch a strip of Designers Series Paper, then scored between the scallops and pleated it. Connect the ends to create a circle and a glue to a punched scallop circle. I attached a flower punched with the Boho Blossoms punch to the center and then added a Stampin' Up! Glimmer Brad. I used the Just Believe Stamp set to create the flower pattern on the card.
Below a picture of the Origami box. I made my own box using 2 pieces of 4 1/4" x 11 1/4" card stock to create the box. I wanted it to fit 3 x 3 cards and envelopes.
Here is a picute of just the card. I like how the whole project came out, hope you do too!
