I started with a pint size annual from Lowes (petunias).
I made a box for it and dressed it up with a stamped bible verse (Verve stamps) on a Nestabilities labels four die cut. (You can do this even without a die cut machine- cut a circle, oval or square by hand). I used the Silhouette plant picks to cut out picks. One of them is stamped with a verse from ODB and the other with a just for you phrase. To get the picks to stay in the flower, tape a toothpick to the back.
And at 4 and 8 inches on the long side.
Then punch each 9 inch end with a decorative punch. Next, make cuts into the sheet on the middle score lines but not all the way across.
Now fold the box and glue together. I used Elmer's Craft Bond glue stick.
Embellish the box as you desire.
Here are a couple I made for my mother and mother-in-law for Mother's Day.
