Blossom Box Accordion Flower Tutorial

Another discovery of a great way to use the Blossom Box Die!  And it is easy as can be! Just adhere three pleated box sections and you have a beautiful accordion flower.   This is 8 inches in diameter so it is a great size for decorating.   Lots of possibilities with this one!
1. Die cut three pieces with the Blossom Box Die from Designer Series Paper.
2.  Mountain fold on the solid lines (very easy as they are pre-scored.)  And valley fold on the dotted lines (again very easy because you can line up the notches.)
3.  Clip the bottom flap in the center up to the score line.  (Ignore the cut piece in the above picture)
4.  Example of the mountain folds on the score lines.
5.  Examples of the valley folds matching the notches.

6.  Adhere three sections together on the outside flaps.
7.  I punched a hole in a small styrofoam plate, threaded a ribbon through and applied sticky strip to the back.
