Ribbon Flower Enhanced Round Box

with Gwen Studios

finished box

A handmade round box with a ribbon flower topper made with ribbon from Gwen Studios. The round box represents a pumpkin. I originally was collaging a napkin onto a pumpkin with the intent to add the flower near the stem. The pumpkin turned out nice but it was too busy to show off the ribbon flower.

The Modern Writers gel pen set from Ooly sells on Amazon for $17.99. And on the Ooly website, the fine line writers are $9.99. These seem to be similar pen sets but are packaged differently. The Ooly pens are lovely but the Jot brand writes well too. The Dollar Tree pens only have four pens so you are losing some of the beautiful colors. (the red and green) So how does the Dollar Tree version write? You can see them in the video below:


Gwen Studios and Designer Crafts Connection are featuring Fall and Halloween projects this month. To see all the design team projects, travel over to Designer Crafts Connection.


Gwen Studios ribbon is available at Walmart and Michaels. For this project, I used Green and Orange satin ribbons in 7/8th inch.

I cut the round box on my Cricut Maker using two pieces of Solar Yellow cardstock from CutCardStock. The free box SVG file is available in the shop. [round box]

ink blending

Before putting the box together, I used Distress Oxide in Spiced Marmalade to add color and visual texture to the cardstock. Doing so was to help the round box have similarities to a pumpkin.

Putting the box together and making the ribbon flower and leaves are explained in the video tutorial below.

With the box open, you can better see the ribbon flower and leaves. The center of the flower is a button from an outfit my mom wore probably in the 70s.
