Medallion Die Flower and Vintage Box

Oh, sweet blog friends, if I had it to do all over again, this round box would be a square box. Why would I wish such a thing? Well, what I thought would be easy was much easier said than done.   I thought perhaps I would put up a tutorial for the box, but by the time I made it twice, I wondered if perhaps I should watch a tutorial, rather than make one!  Alas, I think I have a little bit of perfecting to do before I put this out again.   At any rate, I wanted to make a flower using the new JustRite (made by Spellbinders) Nested Medallion Labels die with the matching set called Starburst Medallions.  I envisioned a box to set it on but of course spent at least an hour looking for the right paper.  Then it hit me, why not alter my design paper by over stamping with the new released Ticking Stripe Background Stamp from JustRite Stampers.  Well, it gave me just the amount of pattern contrast I was looking for and as a bonus, it matches the original pattern paper (wink).

For the flower I cut and embossed the #5, #4 and #2 dies from the Nested Medallion Labels die and I used the same stamp from Starburst Medallion Labels for each layer.    The flower is backed by a figure eight loops bow made on The Peg Bow Maker with 5 wraps on the 4 inch width setting.   For the rest of the embellishment I added Spellbinders™ Foliage die for those sweet small leaves.  The box is made using Spellbinders™ Standard Circles LG #7 (this defines the shape of the box) and Spellbinders™ Grand Circles.

From double paper arranged on the fold, I stamped another medallion and cut out the center star for a tag.  I hung it from the bottom of the flower using pink linen thread. 

Stamps: JustRite StampersStarburst Medallions, Ticking Stripe Background Stamp
Paper: Prima Romantique, Neenah Classic Crest Cream – 80 lb
Ink: Victorian Velvet Distress Ink

Accessories: Nested Medallion Labels, Spellbinders™ Standard Circles LG, Spellbinders™ Grand Circles, Spellbinders™ Foliage, Seam Binding, Recollections Pearls


I had so many left over medallions, that I stamped while working out the logistics of the flower.  So, rather than toss them . . .   I folded over and popped up one layer for an extremely simple enclosure card….

    Stunning! I am curious about how you did the box now more than ever, love the just right stamp and how you did the flower, learning so much this new year how to “look outside the box” with so many dies.

    Have a Wonderful week Becca and everyone.ReplyCancel

  • FrancineJanuary 10, 2012 - 10:10 am

    It is very pretty Becca but for me it is to to difficult. If you think you need a tutorial…it appear for me just to big. I know what you can do .
    Maybe tomorrow you will be proud because you complete this project and it is a success but I won’t ask you to do it again for a tutorial. Take time for
    something you really like to do.
    merci. FrancineReplyCancel

    I am so curious about how your mind works when you look at a die, what questions do you ask yourself? What do you see? This is another amazing Beautiful Becca Bloom. Thank you for making us think – – not just out of the square – – you’ve kicked that out of touch :) and also for encouraging us to go back and look at our dies and stamps and other stuff and see it with REALLY fresh eyes – you are a marvel!

    Yet another masterpiece Becca. You are amazing!!! I love the idea of over stamping your patterned paper for contrasting. Seams harder and harder to find papers collections that include contrast like this. Look forward to a tutorial on both flower and box. This is such a beautiful combination.

  • auntie em (emily)January 11, 2012 - 5:26 pm
