Spring Fling goodie box Tutorial

17 Jan

I have had so much fun working with CutCardStock.com papers. Today, after enduring very cold days and snow last week, my mind turned towards Spring and Easter…I got this darling bunny image from Hambo Stamps (a digital stamp).

I couldn’t resist using it on a cute goodie box.

Instructions/Tutorial

  • Print image and color with Copic Sketch Markers
  • Cut S4-127 Classic Scalloped Squares LG. Use a score tool and score in a square from the divot between the first and second scallops on each side. Then score each corner on the diagonal.
  • Snip on the diagonal of each corner and fold on the score lines so that all the scallops point up. Then cut two contrasting pieces of cardstock at 4×5½”
  • Lay one piece of the just cut cardstock onto your score tool. Mark the left edge at 1/8″ and move it to ¾” line while leaving the bottom corner at the left edge. Score.
  • Flip over the piece and score the other side. Fold both edges in. Complete the scoring and folding with the other rectangles.
  • Add super sticky double-sided tape to the edges of the scalloped square.
  • Add the rectangles to the tape.
  • Add super sticky double-sided tape to the left edge of each of the rectangles as seen above. Remove the protective cover from one piece of tape, bring two sides together and secure. Complete the other three junctions.
  • Using purple cardstock cut S4-239 Classic Scalloped Borderabilities® Petite. After cutting the first time, use the inverted top scalloped edge to cut another strip. Do this three more times and then cut the four strips apart.
  • Glue the ends together. Add the strips to the top of the goodie box, allowing it to encircle the top rim. Trim as needed to match scallops.
  • Cut/emboss S4-235 Fancy Tags from orange cardstock. Add stickers and brads and glue to the box.
  • After coloring the image, cut/emboss with S4-161 Labels One, a size that fits the majority of the image with some parts sticking out. Use some low tack tape to keep the image from moving. Any part that overlaps the edge, cut on either side and pull the part above the die. Then cut in the Wizard.
  • To create a mat for the stamped image, cut/emboss purple cardstock S4-161 Labels One, one size larger than the die-cut stamp.
  • On the back side of the stamped image, place a bamboo skewer and use 3D adhesives to hold it in.  Place the mat onto the back side.
  • Add some crumpled paper on the bottom of the goodie box. Layer a coffee filter on top and place the bunny sign down into the filter and paper. Fill the filter with goodies and display for a happy treat center.
