Trendy Tuesdays - paper folding flower treat box

Paper folding flower treat box

Designer: Melin Beltran

Good morning Crafty friends,
Here is my Trendy Tuesday project.

This is the treat box and some cute little folded roses I made.

For instructions on how to make the flap box: CLICK HERE 

To see how I made the roses, check out my video.
This is my first own attempt at producing a video on my own...so please have mercy on me :) It is pretty choppy AND I had to edit out chunks because I kept going off screen...rofl!!! But I think you will get the idea! I have another video up there that my niece helped me with and I use ribbon to do the same thing so you can check that out too :)
 These are the links

 Here are some step by step pictures.
You will need something to moisten your paper. 1 1x12 inch strip of cardstock weight paper. A craft mat and a sponge to apply liquid evenly.
Step 2. You can either spritz your “liquid” onto your craft mat or directly onto your paper.
Make sure your paper is at least cardstock weight like the Mary’s Garden QQ paper I used in this example.
Step 3. Brush on the liquid to make sure there is even coverage. Also make sure to moisten both sides.
Step4. Begin by folding one corner down as pictures above.
Step 5. Roll the fold you created.
Step 6. after you roll you will need to fold the paper backwards and at an angle. See picture above.
Step 7. After creating your next fold, you will roll your paper again.
Step 8. Continue with the fold n’ roll sequence until you come to the end of your paper.
Step 9. Add some good adhesive such as Beacon’s 3-1 glue from QQ to adhere the tail.
That’s it...you’re done and you have a wonderful quick and easy paper rose :)
Here is one last look at the flowers.

I am eager to try to make this box but the link does not seem to work for me. Can you post the URL, please?

I am looking forward to viewing the YOUtube videos. Thanks for providing such great details!

Hi Donna - both of the links worked for me. Try to copy/paste them into a new internet window if they don't work when you click on them. Once it takes you to youtube, you may need to wait a minute for the video to load depending on how quickly your internet buffers :) Enjoy!

I was able to get to the YOUtube videos with no problem - watched both the ribbon and cardstock videos and they are great!
It is the link to the box tutorial that doesn't seem to work for me.

Love the box and those flowers are amazing. I totally thought they were fabric. I will check out video later. Good for you for making your first one. I am still chicken. Sqwak

What a fabulous little box, Melin!! I love the roses and had I not seen the tutorial, I would have guessed they were made from tie-died ribbon and not paper! I love it!

What a Fun tutorial Melin (You know I LOVE the flowers, lol, especially handmade one!) I too thought the roses were made with fabric, so pretty Melin!
