Poinsettia Posy

For this box, I made flowers (see the "Pretty Pegs" tutorial on Art Angelix) in one size only.

I covered an oval papier mache box with paper, added two kinds of ribbons as a lid trim, and affixed twelve little flowers to the lid.

The bottom of the box is decorated with a paper trim that I discovered serendipitously while trying out a new snowflake punch. I wasn't happy with the snowflakes, but I found a wonderful use for the punch. I'll show you that tomorrow, after I've taken photos of the steps involved.

I has one flower over, so I stuck it to the side of the box as a focal point.

The box will be popped into one of the cartons I'm sending out this week.
