Sunflower Treat Boxes

 I had some fun making these cute treat boxes for my regular monthly stampin group on Monday.
The larger box I received in a swap at convention from Barbara Welch.  It is made using the Floral framlites and the Purse die.  So cute I thought I would make a mini version of it.
 So here is how I made it:
(2) of the large flowers from the Blossom Party Originals Die in Crushed Curry. Scored from point to point all the way around. Sponge tips of petals with Chocolate Chip and the using paper snips cut about 2/3 in between each petal (There will be alittle jagged piece that you will have to trim away on each side after cutting) After snipping fold the petals along score lines.
(2) 1 1/4" Scallop Circles in Chocolate Chip (run them through the BS using the Polka Dot Emboss Folder) and add a dimensional to the back of each.
Box: 3" x 2 1/2" piece of Chocolate Chip scored down the long sides at 1/2" and the through the middle at 1 1/4" and 1 3/4" making it look like an H. Cut as shown in picture and fold and glue to make box.
Handle: 5 3/4" x 1/4" piece of Chocolate Chip add to basket.
Attach scallop circles to center of flowers and then attach flowers to the box by adding glue to the backside 2 petals on the folds only. This will make the flower still pop up instead of those petals laying flat.
And that's it!

I thought I would post another picture so you could see how little it is.  Just big enough for a few mints.  Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

Thanks for sharing your tutorial. I case'd this and made some slight adjustments to the size so that the container was a bit larger. I also made one using your measurements too! It's just adorable :)

I know this project is almost five years old now, but it is so cute! I would really like to try this.
I hope you make a YouTube video one day for us visual learners.
