These sweet little Springtime Paper Flower Gift Boxes are handmade using Spellbinders dies. Simple and perfect for little gifts and favors.
As I write this the birds are chirping outside and I have the back door open at 6 in the morning. Yep, it’s spring! We planted a butterfly garden last week, so we have been outside watering and waiting for our plants to get big and attract butterflies.
With Easter being so early this year, I felt like I wasn’t able to really get into it this year. I did make this amazing deep dish cookie with Cadbury Mini Eggs, which I could eat daily if it fit my macros…but it doesn’t. But Easter isn’t the only thing to celebrate in spring… we have Mother’s Day, Teacher Appreciation Week, and don’t forget National Donut Day (June 1st).
For my springtime gift giving this year, I started making these sweet little boxes in my favorite pastel colors. I’m in love with this adorable flower and I want to fill these boxes with fun treasures and chocolates. Of course these springtime flower paper gift boxes would also be perfect for wedding favors and for baby showers.

Paper Flower Gift Boxes
To start, I cut out the box shapes in pastel and white card stock. Make sure to lay them out so that you have the pieces going in the correct direction. On the outside layer of the box, tape down the flower die and leaves where you want it to be and roll it through the machine. Repeat this until you have all the flowers cut out. You will need to use the Tool-In-One or a pin to clean the remnants of paper out of the die.

Once every thing is cut out, crease all the folds in the boxes so it is easier once the glue is applied. Spray adhesive to the inside of the pieces with the die cuts and adhere the other box shape to it. Repeat with the second side and then glue the two pieces together.
I made a few stickers using the flower die to stick on the tags using a Xyron sticker maker.
So I absolutely love the white boxes with the color on the inside. When you open them up you get a pop of color. I would use shimmery card stock if these were for wedding and fill with with little succulents or yummy treats! What would you put in these paper flower gift boxes?
