Jack "Na" Flower in the box

YAY!!!! I got my Cricut Explore after a long long research and comparison. For the first cut I wanted it to be simple and I chose a box with straight edges. The cuts were very crisp and clean, much much better than my cricut expression. The size of the box is 2.5 inch.


For the topper I used Cheerylynn Polynesian sails Mini doily die and flower cutouts from an old greeting card. Added glitter and glaze to the flower to give a glossy effect.


Made a double bow and added a small ribbon flower bunch which I got from an old hair clip and for the closure I used magnet.


Now for the surprise
"Pop goes the Flower"


The rose was made with Tim holtz flower die with little sparkle from wink of Stella. For the spring I used 2 one inch strips.


And one more thing the pop up flower is removable, used Velcro to attach it to the base. Ideal for small gifts.
