Decorated Foamiran Gift Box

Hi Friends and Crafters, I do hope you are all well. We all love making blooms from Foamiran from 14 Craft Bar, so I thought it would be a nice idea to share a box I made and decorated to deliver when giving as a gift or even if you sell your flowers. I made a rose and then made the box to fit, so dimensions will depend on your project.

You will need:
Green Foamiran (021)
Pink Foamiran  (007)
White Foamiran (001)
Oil Pastels Green and Pale Pink
Florist Wire
Green Florist Tape
Hot Glue Gun
Aluminum Foil
Box Made to Measure with Viewing Window
Pink Satin Ribbon Bows x 2
Small Mulberry Paper Flowers (Roses and Flowers)

Step 1: Cut the foamiran into squares.
For the Pink Rose: Pink 3.5 x 3.5 cm, White 4.5 x 4.5 and 6 x 6 cm
For the White Roses: 3.5 cm and 4.5 x 4.5 cm

Step 2: Round off 3 of the corners to form a petal shape. I have a video to show this along with Shaping and Colouring on a previous post.

Step 3: Colour all of the petals green at the base. The for the pink rose colour the mid sized one with pink around the edges and the larger petal with a  little pink and some green.

Step 4: Shape all of your petals, heating then twisting and gently stretching them to a petal shape, Finally roll the edges outwards.

Step 5: Form a small come shape with foil, make a hole using a pokey tool and secure the florist wire in place with Hot Glue.

Step 6: Build up your blooms tightly in the center, getting loser as you go.

Step 7: Keep the white rose fairly lose, they want to be small but full.

Step 8: To finish the main rose add a green calyx , a leaf and then wrap with florist tape.

Step 9: Decorate the top of your box with the pink ribbon bows, white foamiran roses as the centerpiece and then some small flowers to create a pleasing effect.

Thank you ever so much for joining me today, I do hope you like the finished piece and found the tutorial and videos helpful. For now Take care and Happy Crafting.
