Paint (30) skill sticks white.

To create the box base, attach the ends of skill sticks as shown. Each side of the base uses (3) sticks.


Step 4.

To attach each side together, glue the two ends of the middle skill sticks together.

Continue building upon the base, the same way as you created it.


Step 6.

Measure the sides of the finished box, then draw a box the same size on craft foam.

Step 8.

Cut brown textured foam sheet in half. We used  8″ x 5 1/2″ foam sheets and needed (2) sheets total.


Step 9.

Glue the ends of the foam sheet to the inside of the box, creating a small hill, as shown.


Step 10.

Press down in the middle of the foam hill and glue, to create (2) smaller hills.

Step 11.

Repeat until the box is full.

Write “MOM’S FLOWERS” using foam stickers.

Repeat until you have as many flowers as you’d like.


Step 16.

Use a craft knife to create small slits in the tops of the hills.
