Melin made this treat box with folded Paper Roses.

Here is an inside shot of the box.
For details on how to make the flowers you can visit a video I made. Please excuse the crudeness of the video. It is MY first attempt at creating a video on  my own. While it is rough, I think you will get the idea :)

I used Quick Quotes Savvy Davvy Designer Paper, Some Rhinestone flowers from Kaiser Kraft and some Basic Ribbon.
