Blue Citrus Box
Die Cuts With A View has come out with some extremely fun new paper lines! I know, it is super hard to choose which one you want, but I had my eye on the Blue Citrus pack and, let me tell ya, it’s gorgeous! I have so many fun projects that I want to use this paper for, but a treat box quickly ran to the top of my list. I am a piano teacher and had a huge wicker basket loaded with treats for my students. After a couple of years, I have gotten really sick of how huge it is and that it’s always full of stuff other than treats. So, I got what I think is a brilliant idea to make a darling treat box.
First, I just grabbed the only box I thought might work. It was way too tall for what I had in mind, so I cut it down to a 4 inch height. Then, all I did was size my paper and Mod Podge it to the box. I had a friend sitting with me and she suggests that an adhesive spray would be faster too if you’d like to try that out.
Next, I used my QuicKutz Sunrise Doily and Heartfelt Creations Vintage Floret dies to embellish the box. Oh, and the adorable Eyelet Circle Punches are a new fav! I love a die that gives you several pieces by one run through your machine! Seriously, they are so cute! I just glued them to my box and put the treats inside. I love that it’s cute. I love that it’s small. And I love, love, love the Blue Citrus!
