Hi all, I hope that you don't mind looking at a few photos of my Flower Box, I have used this box to feature just a few of my favourite things, I have made to box from Kraft card, I crocheted a Chrysanthemum flower which I have adhered to the top of the box along with some die cut Memory Box leaves.

I stamped the main body of the box with flower stamps from a set that I bought from Waltzingmouse stamps a long time ago, I used TH distress ink.  I used pink linen effect card around the edge of the top of the box and punched it with an EK Success border punch, I used the same pink card for the scalloped die cut circles around the four sides. 
I used two of the larger flower stamps and centered them into the scalloped squares, I then added two of my beloved Tilda's and two greeting tags with twine threaded through. 

This box will be filled with Turkish Delight for my sister's birthday.
I would like to enter my box into the following challenges:
I hope you have enjoyed looking at the photos of my box, I will be showcasing some more of my crocheted flowers at different times, I am really loving making them.  Thank you for visiting I do hope to see you again soon.
