Petal/Butterfly Box

I made this box for a friend yesterday.  I downloaded Lauren Meader's Pick of the Petals PDF from her online store: My Time Made Easy.  It wasn't that hard to put together.  I did make a mistake and affixed the tabs for the seams on the outside instead of the inside of the box.  This made the base a little larger than it was suppose to be and the lid a little tricky to put on.  But it worked! 
I cut the butterflies from my Sizzix die in Rich Razzleberry and Razzleberry Lemonade DSP.  Inside is a Fabreeze Brazilian Carnival candle.  It smelled SOOooo good!  I tied a simple white ribbon around the candle and cushioned it with a sheet of white tissue paper.
The label is by spellbinders and I inked inside the die with So Saffron.  I stamped the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry.  I used pearls and a yellow Prima flower for accent.  It was great!  I love making little boxes for people - so much fun to decorate!!
