Today I’m sharing another batch of Pyramid Gift Boxes, this time wrapped in floral plates from Études de fleurs et de fruits (ca 1820):
Print out and whip up some unique French Floral Pyramids! I print these on Canon Matte (170g) photo paper.
I contrasted this set with rough twine, but you can of course use anything you wish to string them with: lace, pretty ribbon, yarn or embroidery floss! To get my string of choice through the holes, I make a little “needle” of a piece of wire (about 5″) by bending it in half and twisting it around my string. This makes threading easy peasy 🙂
The Pyramid Gift Box is very easy to make, my girls are making these themselves all the time to use for gifting cash when their friends have birthdays. I must have made a gazillion different designs for these, and in addition they are super easy to embellish further. The Pyramid Gift Box is perfect for litte gifts, party treats or simply cash; like a 3D-card 😀
Here are low resolution previews of each of the boxes:

These Floral boxes are DIVINE ! I especially fell in love with the rose designs.I hope you will have one with pink Redoute Old garden roses 🙂 I’d like to make for a breast cancer patient.Thank You AGAIN for your generosity !!
Hi Brigitte 🙂 I will consider your request, but I think it could be a while before I get there, I have sooo much planned for the next few weeks…:-P I love Redoute roses too, and agree that they would fit the boxes well! xoxoxo
PS Meanwhile, may I suggest you print out some Redoute roses from this link: https://archive.org/stream/mobot31753000795820#page/42/mode/thumb, then print one of my boxes, cut it out, and place it on the Redoute prints to trace around it?
Thank you so much for these beautiful boxes !!! Regards from France.
