Mother's Day Gift Box

So Spring is here and in the UK we will be celebrating Mother's Day on the 15th March so I thought I would show you how I made this little gift box from Ruby Rock-It's new Fusion papers.

Products Used

 I decided to use the 12 x 12 yellow flourish paper. With the flourish side facing up, folded it in half, then open it up and fold it in half the other way.

With the dot side facing up fold the paper in half diagonally at the four corners.  Push in the sides to create a triangle using the folds you have created.

Fold the left side of the triangle down until it meets with bottom edge, then unfold

Fold the top corner on the left hand side across till the tip matches the edge of the fold just made.  Fold this down and then repeat on the right side.

Once folded tuck one of the sides into the pocket on the other one.  Turn the whole thing over and repeat the above step.

Fold up the bottom 'triangle' and then unfold again.

Gently open the box.  A slight push on the bottom will help the box to go into shape.

And there you have the box!  All that needs to be done is to decorate it.

I used some of the Oriental Chic embellishements along with some hand made flowers in Bella! Vellum and some strips of paper from the fusion paperz.

This little gift box will be filled with little treats for a special mum or it could even be used as a great little Easter basket for little people to collect the Easter Bunny's eggs.

If you have a go I would love to see what you create,
