Lilly Explosion Box

Another day of "Gardening".  I love these flowers, I can't kill them.  Its' amazing how not watering your flowers / garden causes them to die ~ ~ ~ who knew!!!
I used THIS tutorial by Valita in Aussie, for the lillies, they originated from Sharri and they are so fun to make.  I made 2 of the white ones, then made a pinkish one for this box.  Here is a picture of my completed box with a couple of my white lillies...........

and the inside

Here is a close up of the inside flowers - one lilly and two roses behind it, the "leaves" are a MS punch.

And here is a close up of the flower detail on the top of the box ~ ~ ~

Supplies I used:
Paper:  Retired Stampin' Up! DSP (sorry can't remember the name)
Cardstock:  Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Regal Rose, Pretty In Pink, Old Olive
Ink:  Pretty In Pink and Regal Rose for sponging
Ribbon:  Regal Rose 5/8" GG, Whisper White Taffeta
Other:  Beads from Pretties Kit, Little Leaves die, MS Punch, NEW XL 2-3/8" Scallop Circle punch
For the flower on the box top I punched 3 XL Sc Circles from Pretty In Pink and 3 from Regal Rose.  Then I ran them through the crimper to break down the fibers and to separate the layers.  I separated each one into two pieces.  Then I spritzed them with Champagne Mist Shimmer Pain Spritz and crumpled them, put them together with a pink brad and formed into a flower.  Then I spritzed again with some Gold and Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritzes.  Oh my the ***BLING***.  I sponged all the DSP with Pretty In Pink and Regal Rose around all the edges.  The bow detail is just 2 layers of Regal Rose GG then a layer of Whisper White Taffeta, and a round of Regal Rose again.  The inside is all ready to put either pictures or some stamped and / or coloured images.  I have not decided yet.  But I love this little box, and they are so darned easy to make.
Here' another picture of the box all closed up....

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog,

              see you soon In My Craft Room. ......  Glenda Mollet
