Snip and Spritz Flower with Tangelo Twist

As promised in my previous post, today I'll share my gift box that I decorated with my Tangelo Twist Snip and Spritz flower.  This box is one of our Kraft Gift Boxes.  After all my previous ideas I shared with you on using ribbons, I have yet one more great one for today.  Let's take a look.
Did you figure out how I did it?  I laid my Tangelo Twist ribbon onto my Craft Mat and laid down a line of Snail Adhesive onto the ribbon.  Then, I carefully picked it up and laid it on top of a piece of our Burlap Ribbon.  I pressed it down a lot, to make sure it stuck.  Then, I wrapped the ribbons around my box and pinched in the place where I wanted to tie it off.  I tied it off with a double layer of Linen Thread.  I usually angle cut or V-cut the ends of my ribbon, but I decided that this one looked better straight.  I really like the look.  This would be a cute border for a scrapbook page!
For texture, dimension, and detail, I've used 3 lace doilies under my flower.  The white one is kind of pleated/scrunched a bit to make it smaller than the 2 beneath it.  I spritzed those 2 doilies to coordinate with the flower. 
Come back soon to see my next flower.  We'll be using Blackberry Bliss.  It is gorgeous!!!
