Tutorial: Gift & Favor Boxes with Pretty Paper Flowers

Armed with a round paper punch and lots of great papers, I was looking for a new craft idea. I ended up with the paper flowers above which are perfect for embellishing gift or wedding favor boxes.

Gift Boxes
Various Round Paper Punches
Scrapbooking paper in the color of your choice
Hot Glue and Hot Glue Gun
Exacto blade and tweezers


1. Punch out 5 circles for each flower. I made three sized flowers, the smallest with a standard 3 hole punch and the largest using a 1.5 diameter inch punch.

2. To make the petals, gently fold each circle and pinch one side to make a crease.

3. Layout the petals on a piece of paper to get an idea how you will arrange them before gluing.

4. Glue each petal on to your gift box. Use the blade and tweezers to clean off any extra glue.

Have fun!

Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have
to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

Paper flowers and home decor seem to go together very well. Let us face it fresh flowers can be expensive especially if you enjoy having a beautiful bouquet or even two in the house at all times.

My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on several websites
for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
I have heard good things about blogengine.net.
Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
Any help would be really appreciated!
