Another Dreamweaver Treat

The Dreamweaver challenge theme for this month is tiny treats, gift boxes, for different occasions.  Today I am using the Heartfelt Creations Gift Box die to make this box.  I cut out the four sides from decorator paper, then adhered them together.  Then  used the 1 1/2" Scor-Tape around the box.  Then I added a strip of May Arts crocheted ribbon onto the sticky strip of tape.  Finally I added some of the Elizabeth Craft Designs Microfine Glitter to any of the exposed tape.  This adds some glitz as well.  Then for the top I used the Lotus Stencil from Dreamweaver.  I ran this lotus through my Cuttlebug machine with the embossing pad to Emboss the image.  Then I used some pigment ink from a Splendor pad and a stencil brush to add color to the flower.  I repeated this process untill I had four Lotus.  Then I cut around the entire flower of the first one.  Then I cut in a bit for the second layer, then cut in a bit more for the third layer and finally a small flower was cut out of the last Dahlia.  I used pop dots to adhere the layers together.  The leaf was made with the Maple Branch stencil.  This can work as a Bridal Shower gift, Mother's day gift or any Appreciation event!  Check out more Tiny Treat ideas from the Design Team!
