Sunflower Box with a Twist

Hello all! Sonja with Sugar Bean Cards here with my latest project. August means sunflowers around here, well peaches too, but I wanted to focus on sunflowers this round. 

My inspiration for this sunflower box comes from some sunflower fields we have about 45 minutes from our house. Seeing a field filled with rows upon rows of yellow vibrant flowers and a summer sunset can't get any better!

I started with one sheet of Pineapple Bliss by Bazzill Basics Paper for the larger petals. I distressed the edges slightly with a bit of Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink. 
Next I decided to use some copper embossing powder by Recollections to embellish the smaller petals that are cut in the Grapefruit Bliss by  Bazzill Basics Paper.
Then I started assembly after cutting out the box base from DCWV's 11" x 17" Heirloom Cardstock Premium stack. What I loved about this stack was that it is double sided so it cut down on paper needed for decorating the inside of the box.
 Then I decided to add a surprise to the inside of the box for the recipient.
 Final Project:

 Pull up on the top of the box and...
The tag and flowers are all embossed with copper to match the copper detailing on the smaller petals.
