A Beautiful Lily Box

I have been making so many boxes of late and just wanted to share this one with you. The box is made using the Big Shot Scallop Envelope Die. I can't remember exactly where I found the tutorial but it's quite easy. It uses 4 Scallop Envelopes which are then all attached together to form a box.
Here it is:-
I have used Melon Mambo as the base and have teamed it up with Certainly Celery for the scallop lid. You will also need to cut another 4 envelopes if you wanted to make the scallops a contrasting colour and attach them to the inside of the lid.

Now for the wow factor take a look at the gorgeous lily flowers!!! Aren't they fantastic. Now I came across Valita's Designs & Fresh Folds where she has a tutorial on how to make these flowers. You can find the post for it here.

Here is a close up of the lillies:-

I think these lillies are perfect to use on tops of boxes, they just give it that extra lift. So stay tuned and I will endeavour to add some more boxes made with this die.

Happy stamping,
