Yesterday the TLC on Splitcoast was to make a little round top box. After I had one printed out, I thought of a really cool project. So, I printed another one.
And I used sticky strip to adhere them together for an Easter basket!!
First you need to download the template :
Print it on to two sheets of CS. I used certainly celery. Cut them out, score on dotted lines, and then assemble each one separately.
I then used my wide oval punch to make a handle in ONE of the completed boxes. Then using sticky strip, you adhere both boxes together, as shown. Now punch the handle in the other one, by lining it up over the one already punched.
Now it is time to embellish. I took a piece of 3 3/8 X 12 SAB Delicate Dots DP and that covered the inside handle on each side. Do only one side at a time, so you can cut out the oval and the rounded top edge. I cut a 2 X 12 piece for the bottom, scalloped the edge and adhered it to the box. You will need an extra piece for the back side, as it doesn't quite fit. I then tied the SAB celery poly-twill around the box, making the bow. I took another SAB set, Yummy, that goes so perfectly for any food related gifts. I inked it up with celery, used my shirt (couldn't find the Q-Tips) to remove some of the ink, and re-inked it with my black marker. I stamped it onto confetti white, and cut it out. I added an eyelet with my crop-a-dile, and some gold cord to tie it to the box. I then added some matching ribbons, and right after I took the pictures my kids came and snagged the peeps!
I think these would make great place cards for the kids table at your next Easter get together. Have them full of mini eggs for after the meal, and they would LOVE it. Have fun and happy stamping!!
