My summer flowers beaded box pattern is the first in a new series of beaded boxes. I’ve invested in some new design tools and am trialling them to create more pattern in the boxes. So, this is a nice easy one to try out at first. I’ll tell you more about the design in just a minute. But first, let’s take a look at what you will need.

Materials

This beaded box comprises a basic box with an ornamental lid. So, you will need the following materials:

  • Size 10 Delica beads
  • 10mm pearl or round bead (this will also work with a 12mm size if that’s all you can get)
  • Size 11 seed beads
  • Your choice of beading thread

You will want to select the beading thread that gives you the best tension. For me, that is Fireline (I find 4lb is fine), but you may need something different. If you are curious about choosing beading thread, then check out this blog for some advice.

In the tutorial, I have given you the bead colours that I used, but you are free to choose your own. I have also explained why you need two types of seed bead.

Experience and Techniques

You are going to be working in Peyote stitch for all of the summer flowers beaded box. I have assumed you already have some knowledge of the technique. So, you will be using the following variations:

  • Circular
  • Tubular
  • Stitch-in-the-ditch
  • Diamond

Bearing that in mind, I have created this tutorial with intermediate to advanced beaders in mind. If you are less experienced, you can still give this a go. Just remember you will need to solve a few extra problems along the way. So, be patient and prepared to learn. You can check out this free tutorial for a beginner’s guide to circular and tubular Peyote.

About the summer flowers beaded box

When I created this design, I was interested in exploring the idea of highly patterned box sides. But I also wanted to add a little something different. So, I created an embellished lid that would reflect the theme of the box and the side decoration.

This may look like a complicated pattern to follow, but as I’ve given you a word chart, it’s going to be easier than you think!

The finished box is about 2″ high and 2″ wide.
