Anything Funky Goes in the Box

Hello and welcome to another Get Funky update. 
 It's me, Kathy here with my project for our

We started off on 15th August and have been sharing ideas ever since - there's still more to come, and of course the challenge doesn't end until September 14th - the day before the next Funky Fifteenth, so you still have a couple of days to join in with us this time

As the title suggests you can share anything you like this time - as long as you use at least one Funky Hand product - If you don't then your project won't be entered for our monthly prize, which would be a shame as our winner gets to own a fabulous Download of their choice - and theres lots to choose from in the Funky Hand catalogue! 
If you don't have any of Anice's fabulous papers (yet) then every month she comes up with a Funky Freebie for you.

This time I've made a folded paper box using the lovely new Funky Hand Download Daisy Day

  I used 2 sheets of ordinary thin, A4 card (you can just use paper if you like) chose three of the Daisy Day papers and printed one (which will show on the inside of the box) on both sheets of card.  Next I turned the card over and printed the other two designs once each.
The easy-to-follow pictorial instructions for making the box can be found HERE 

To make the flower decoration:
Once the box was done I printed one of the same designs on both sides of a sheet of paper.
In my graphics program I cropped down the largest of the flowers you also find in the  Daisy Day download and resized it so that it would print about 6cms square.
 I printed this on card and cut it out, removing alternate "petals"to make a template which I then drew around 3 times on the printed paper.
I cut them out then cut into the centre of the flowers, and removed a bit more of the the inner section 

Hopefully this little diagram will help the words make more sense!

Next I coiled each of the 3 flowers up loosely so that they made a sort of cone shape., adding glue to the edges to keep the shapes in place. 
 I glued the 3 cone shapes onto a punched circle base and allowed this to dry while making some paper spirals from some of the leftover paper.
The spirals were arranged and glued in place on the box lid, then the cone flower decoration was added over the ends of the spirals to finish

Daisy Day is available from the Funky Hand web site for Instant Gratification at the very gentle price of £3.49!

Don't forget to add your name to Mr Linky so we can drop by your blog and take a look at your work and please don't forget that you MUST use something by Funky Hand.
No Funky Hand product = no chance to win the prize 

Happy, Funky Crafting
