Mother's day box

I made this box to put my mom's mother's day gift in. It was very easy using a template from My Time Made Easy. I did have to cut 2 more pieces to increase the height and stuck it inside and then used the ribbon to cover up the seam. I could have just changed the cut file before hand but since I didn't I decided waste not want not and used what I already had cut and added to it. The top was much easier to assemble than it looks. I was very nervous about it but it went together so easy!!!!

The rose on top is made from the rambling rose cut file from MTME as well. Lauren has a video on her blog on how to assembe the rose too hers turned ouit much better than mine but since this was my first attempt I was happy with it. Very easy and was a big hit with mom! Looks great!! The leaves are a MS punch, and 1 came unglued in transport and was lost so there are only 2 on it now instead of the 3 I originally put there. haha oh well.

I also gave the whole top rose and all a little spritz with some glimmer mist for some extra sparkle.
