Christmas Delights - Paper Folding Flowers

I love how this Christmas gift box has come together, I started by making a box from red and gold card stock, the bits of the gold card that I had left over I punched out some leaves ready to add to the top of the box.
Now for the flowers, I found these on a very clever paper folding blog called Folding Trees you must check out the tutorial of the flower here

You can see on this close up image that I used a gold marker on the centre folds to make the middle of the flower pop.

I blame you entirely Jak (no cleaning yet again) - another design which you've adapted to produce this stunning box - it's lovely - I've visited the tutorial and have made one (flower that is) in white copy paper for a start - tfs
