You Will Need
1 Copy the rose diagram in the desired size.
2 Cut out the diagram and affix it lightly with masking tape to the front of the cardboard box.
3 Use your embroidery needle to make holes at each corner of the blocks where a cross-stitch must be worked. Remove the diagram.
4 Cut a length of embroidery thread of about 30cm and thread it through your needle. Follow the diagram and work the cross-stitch row by row from the centre of the box outwards. Complete the whole design, cutting more embroidery thread as needed. Thread the loose ends in at the back for a neat finish.
5 Fold the box and place a bunch of flowers in a small vase inside the box.
