Gorgeous boxes, Ladies. This technique is surely going on my "to do" list.

Thank Judi.... I did jot down the measurements so I could refer to them, but I also kept the video up and sometimes on pause as I went along.
You start with an 8 1/4 X 9 piece of paper. On the 9" side you score at:
2 1/8 - 4 1/4 - 6 3/8 - and 8 1/2. Turn your paper 90 degrees and score at 2 3/4. With the 2 3/4 on your left and the 8 1/4 score on the bottom measure to 6" and cut the paper. Take the small piece you cut off and cut a 3 1/8 piece. Cut that piece in half lengthwise.
Looking at the 6" piece you will see that you have a larger space at the top above the score line and a smaller space at the bottom. Cut up each score line on the bottom space ( there will be four cuts) on the last little tab cut that one off completely up to the half way mark. With your small tab on the left skip one section ( this will be the back of the card ) fold and bone fold the other three sections. Then form your box using the small tab to glue and hold the box together. You can now place your designer paper where you wish on the sides, top etc. With the small 3 1/8 pieces fold them in a Z form and glue to inside of box at various spaces ( I found that I needed an extra Z piece to make my flowers look right. You can decorate how you choose. Then just take various flowers etc and clue to the Z pieces.
Hope this is pretty clear. Like I say I just pause my video or rewind it to see the different steps.
God bless
Nyoka

Those are just beautiful and so dramatic. What a great idea to give to someone who is going through chemotherapy. I know my Mother wasn't allowed to be around fresh flowers for years so I was always looking for ideas like this. Great job ladies. I need to try one out too, maybe out of the Grapefruit paper pack.

Thank you, Nyoka. I really have to try making one of those boxes. I'm going to have to find some more papers with pretty flowers. I have more Christmas papers than I do papers with flowers. Now I get to have an excuse to add to my stash. Judi

It is the nice way to express one feelings on cancer and these wonderful cards can display a message to quit smoking which will be greatly appreciated by all.

Thanks for your post, unfortunately smoking is not the only cause for cancer. My daughter in law is not a smoker, she has pancreatic cancer. There is not a good prognosis for PC... most don't survive it.
God bless
