Time Well Spent Hostess Gift

I have a couple more parties coming up this month and wanted to create something new to give to one of the hostesses. I decided to make this little origami box and embellish it with flowers from the Time Well Spent stamp set (just got it--I love it!).
The hostess I have in mind wants to get a scalloped circle punch so I put one of the So Many Scallops stamps in it for her. I made the box out of So Saffron DSP. I stamped the flowers in Basic Black on Whisper White cardstock. I colored in the images using a Blender Pen with Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron and Old Olive ink. I used dimensionals to pop up certain elements of the image. Then I added Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I put a So Saffron brad in the middle of the smaller flower. The ribbon is Old Olive wide grosgrain.
