I loved how the black and white with the yellow gingham looked so I decided to make a 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ box to go with it. This is a fun size, and it’s so versatile. You could put cookies, Ghiradelli chocolates, or 3 x 3 cards in it. It would make a fun coworker gift or teacher gift.

Daisy Box Instructions
- Using Daffodil Delight Ink and the Buffalo Check stamp, stamp the Whisper White CS square and four rectangles. Then stamp the large daisy and medium daisy twice. (I used a dauber and some of the Daffodil Delight ink to color the centers of all four flowers. You don’t have to do this.)
- Then layer the two large daisies and two medium daisies. Then layer the medium daisies onto the large daisies so you have one flower.
- Next, using the adhesive of your choice, layer the Buffalo Check stamped square onto the black square. Then adhere the daisy to the stitched square. Now layer the stitched square to the stamped square and set aside.
- Then layer the Buffalo Checked rectangles onto the black rectangles and set aside.
- After you have scored the 10″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Whisper White CS, on the long side, then cut on the vertical score lines to the first horizontal score line. Then use the bone folder to fold and burnish the score lines.
- After you’ve done that, then miter the squares to make them tabs.
- Then adhere the tabs to form a flip top box.
- Finally, adhere the stamped and matted rectangles to your box and the square with the daisy to the top of your box.
If you don’t want to make your own box, you could always use the Mini Pizza Boxes. All of the dimensions above will work with them. Also, if you don’t want to stamp your own gingham panels, you could use the 6″ x 6″ DSP paper pads.
