Little Easter Treasure!

Good afternoon dear fellow Crafters,

today, i just wanted to let you know how to create this cute little treasure box, it´s ideal to put two chocolate eggs inside and give it away as a Easter treat to someone you love...

I used the botanical builder dies set for the flower embellishment on top of it, and stamped the card stock all over with  the just for you sentiment from the water colour words stamp set, using Soft Suede stamping pad on crumb cake car stock.

You will need the stampin up! envelope punch board, a 6" x 6" piece of card stock 
and score and punch the first side of your card stock at 11/2",
 then rotate one side to the left and score and punch at 3", 
rotate again to the next side, punch and score at 1 1/2" 
and do the last side of your card stock at 3".

You now need to line up each side of the card stock with the score lines you previously did, and just punch at that line again, but do not score a second line. 
Do this at all 4 sides , so that each side of your card stock has got 2 punch marks but only 1 score line.
Now its time to cut the score lines to  the left and right side of the wider flaps, wedge them a little bit, too. You just cut vertically up to the first horizontal score line.

To assemble the box, first of all use your bone folder to gently round  all 4 flaps , burnish your score lines and add glue to the 4 little flaps you just cut  and put the box together.
In order to create a closure, i punched a hole with my smallest circle punch to the large flap at the backside of my box, then gently push all 4 sides in the dome shape, carefully bending it but not folding it, until the box looks sufficiently closed.
I used my pokey tool to poke through the punched circle to mark where my brad will go, and add the brad to the box.
Pushing the backside flap over gently to the front side of the box, the hole will appear and allow to slide the brad in. That will secure the lid.
I added a gemstone to my brad to add some bling.

For the flower embellishment on top of the box, i used daffodil delight card stock and the botanical builder dies set, and die cut the flower and the leaf.
I assembled the flower and leaf with a glue dot on top of my box and finished off the flower with a gemstone to the center of the flower, too.

Below, you will find a list of all the products i used to create this cute little treasure box.
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
