Okay, ladies. Here are the directions for the "Bloomin Box". Thanks to member Peggy Rios.
1-12x12 cardstock score at 4",turn 1/4, score at 4", repeat on all four sides.
1-10 1/2 x 10 1/2 cardstock score at 3 1/2", turn 1/4, score at 3 1/2" repeat on all 4 sides.
1-8 1/4 x 8 1/4 cardstock score at 2 3/4", turn 1/4, score at 2 3/4" again repeat on all four sides.
Cut off all four corners on each piece. Don't discard, you can use them as your mats.
The rest is up to you. All mats are 1/4" smaller then the layers. I did all mine doubled matted.
To make the lid use 1-8 1/2" x 8 1/2" square of cardstock. Score a line diagonally from upper right to lower left corners then upper left corner to lower right corner. Now fold each side to the center mark. Cut slits on each fold mark ONLY on TWO opposite ends. Then you can fold the sides up and make your top. I practiced this on a scrap sheet after goofing it up on my good cardstock the first time. I then got it. Good luck! And thanks again to Peggy Rios for these great directions and wonderful fun project.
