Little Boxes all ready to go!
Stampin' Up Curvy Box die
Die Cutting machine (I used my Grand Caliber)
White Card for boxes (Adorable Scorable, ideal as it doesn't crack on folding or Centura Pearl)
Washi tape in various spring designs
Ranger, Tim Holtz, Distress Ink in Spun Sugar
alternatively for the above use pink card, or an alcohol marker to colour white card to pink.
Ink applicator sponge or cut and dry.
Punches in the following shapes and sizes:
Large scallop oval, just slightly larger than the plain oval
Circle punches, sizes; 1 3/4", 5/8", 3/8", 1/4"
White pen, or white black board pen.
Cosmic shimmer glue
Dimensional glue stickers (sticky pads)
Mini eggs or any treats you wish to add - have fun in filling :)
and the method folks is:
Die cut the box halves and then before assembling, add the washi tape to the lower section of the boxes at the desired height. I positioned mine at approximately 5mm from the base on all four sides.
The boxes were assembled with the cosmic shimmer glue. I find this has a quick grab and holds the boxes secure.
Now to make the faces :)
These are the pieces needed to build the face
Use this to help with assembling
The faces were then applied to the boxes with a sticky pad (dimensional sticker). The next fun part comes with the filling - I'm going to fill them up with mini eggs - yum yum!!! Off out to buy them now as just found that hubby has eaten my stash of them - lol.
The boxes can be opened without effecting the little faces; have fun and enjoy.
