Knitted Flower Brooch & Box

For the box lid I used white card printed with paper from Polkadoodles Sundae of Seasons CD, the flowers are stamps that came with Craft Stamper magazine, I stamped them with black ink and heat embossed them, and put sticky gems in the centres.

For the scalloped circle I used white card decorated with blue and green marbling inks, I then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I also inked around the edges and embossed that too. I also used the same marbled card to stamp the flowers on. Punched out butterflies and baker's twine wrapped round the scalloped circle.

Inside the box is a knitted flower brooch, the outer blue petals I knit with aran wool and the inner green petals are double knitting. The pattern is from this book.
