Snip and Spritz Flower in Hello Honey

In my previous post, I showed you 3 gift boxes I decorated with my Snip and Spritz flowers.  I promised to show close-ups and give more details in my next posts.  Today, let's start with one of our new In Colors, Hello Honey.  It is a beautiful shade of yellow and perfect for making Snip and Spritz flowers.  I used mine to decorate one of our Tag A Bag Gift Boxes.  Take a look at how it turned out.
To avoid the temptation of having candy treats around, I filled mine with filler... all ready now to add something good on top of it when I need a quick and cute gift for a special someone.
Tip:  
When you're able to use a neutral color of filler like this one, I use what's called caremail Eco Packing.  It comes in a huge bag in the mailing section of Staple's and it's only about $5.00.

If you need a color to coordinate better than just neutral, try cutting tiny slivers of coordinating CS, crumple it up and add to your beautiful gift box.
I used 2 different designs from our Lullaby DSP to wrap around my box.  The ribbon is Lost Lagoon, which I love using with Hello Honey.
I've added a 'crumpled' doily (spritzed first) beneath my flower, to give added texture and detail to my project.
Come back soon to see my next flower.  We'll be using Tangelo Twist.
