Flower Kraft Boxes {tutorial}

Hello! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! We had a little incident with our front door! haha! Buuuut I’m happy to say that we now have a front door again. Yay! So it all worked out. ;) It’s the 2nd Monday of the month which means it time for another Silhouette Challenge. Yay! This month the theme is flowers. At the end of this post I’ll have links to almost 30 different flower projects made by some of your favorite bloggers & their Silhouettes. One of my favorite things to make with my Silhouette are the 3D boxes. They are perfect for gift giving. Today I’m going to show you how I made these sweet little flower kraft boxes. So keep reading! :)flower kraft boxes from GingerSnapCrafts.com #SihouetteCAMEO #SilhouettePortrait #tutorial

a Silhouette
twine
buttons
hot glue & glue gun
scissors
Elmer’s X-TREME glue stick

First you’ll cut out your boxes using your Silhouette. I used my Portrait. Tip: If you score the lines on your boxes to make them a whole lot easier to fold. ;)
