Package of the Month
- Crepe paper
- Jewelry Box #34 in Oatmeal
- 12-15" of Spaghetti Satin
- Glue stick
Use our petal template here. Cut out 9-10 large petals and 7-9 small petals in Crepe paper with grain lines up and down.
Find center of the lid and poke hole with awl.
Thread spaghetti satin as a loop handle. Tie off ribbon into double knots on both sides of lid, as close to lid as possible. This allows you to securely lift lid up.
Gently stretch each petal into cupped shapes. The split at the bottom will help with the curve (when glued down).
Add large petals by dabbing glue onto lid and placing petals individually. You have have to glue down overlapping split to hold ends down. Form a loose circle or large petals around the lid. Overlapping is ok.
Next glue down the smaller petals tightly down around the ribbon handle to hide any bare spots left. Overlapping is ok and helps to look more realistic.
Don't limit yourself to just this box. try it on larger boxes (with larger petals!)
