Fred She Said Take Out Box

Hi all! Here is another project using Tracey's digital flowers. The box is Sizzix's Take Out Box and is in a medium yellow CS. This little box is so versatile and can be used for small gifts, gift cards, table favors for parties and weddings! I used the digital Dahlia's from Fred She Said and printed three sizes of the dahlia's outline along with the leaves on 90lb watercolor paper. Then I watercolored them with my Tombow markers. After the were dry I cut them out and glued the three dahlia sizes together and "fluffed" the petals up. Yellow glitter glue was added to the center, but a quilled coil or fringe flower, flower soft, button or a crystal could be used also for a different look.
I added the floral punched daisy that has a tight coil center and some green quilled "vines" along side the blue dahlia. The flowers along with a punched sentiment tag accented with a blue crystal sit upon a yellow Nestability label 2, which is popped up with dimensionals onto another label 2 die cut. Both label die cut edges were inked in a corresponding color, the blue one also has a pierced border. It is hard to see in the picture but the blue dahlia and leaves are accented with a Sakura pen.

To help open the box I added a ribbon tab with a small flower brad, and the top is held closed with a velcro dot under the label. The box is finished with a gold wire handle and blue grosgrain bow on front. It was really easy and fun to make and the box becomes another gift!
If you haven't tried Fred She Said digi flowers and stamps, hope on over to Tracey's site and see all the great things she has to offer! You don't even have to color to use them, she has some wonderful sets that come in color and ready to use! Just print and cut them out and embellish them how you like! Check out the Fred She Said Design Team's blogs links listed on the right sidebar under the FSS blinkie for more great designs using these digi stamps!
Until the next post,
Comments always welcome! If you want to see "how you do that" on any project, just let me know!

Wow Sonya, what a gorgeous little box you've done, I agree it could be used for so many uses, love the use of the flowers you've done. I've not used any of the outline ones yet, but have used the pre colored ones loads of times. Glad to be working with you on the FSS team.
