This is made using my Petal Fold Box die by Sizzix, Maggie Holmes; Bloom paper by Crate Paper and an upcycled doily.supplies

To make the petal fold box begin by die cutting four of the main shapes. Fold all of the vertical and horizontal folds first. Next, gently bend the curved creases to start then fold sharply once started. Add adhesive to each side flap and adhere each panel until all four panels are attached. This creates a tube shape. Fold in the bottom panels and adhere closed. This is now a box with an open top. Gently fold in the top curves.valentine_stepouts

To make the doily inserts begin by adding adhesive to a regular lace doily, I kept this one from the restaurant last night. I suggest a spray adhesive if available. I used a Sizzix adhesive sheet which worked well but I had to clean up bits of adhesive peeking through on the doily when completed.

To keep the adhesive sheet from sticking to my cutting pad when I ran it through my machine, I first placed the adhered doily, face up on the bottom cutting pad, next I placed the die face down on the edge of the doily then I placed the adhesive carrier sheet on top and ran this through my Big Shot machine. The piece will have a crease line in the middle, gently fold that to help align to the  crease line on the box top. Finally, I removed the doily from the adhesive sheet and adhered it to the petal fold box. See photo steps below.

I finished the box by adding some embellishments from the paper pad. Happy Valentine’s Day!sizzix_valentine_petal_fold_box
