Hi, happy Monday! I received a very cool Sizzix BigZ L die, it is a Cake Pop Box Die. I thought it would be fun to make Christmas Treat Boxes with this die. The first thing I did was pick out some different Christmas papers to use. I cut them in 6″ x 9″ pieces to fit the die. Next, I got out my Sizzix Big Shot, and cut out my boxes, these dies cut so easily!
I also cut a piece of clear acrylic out for each box, the piece was approximately 1 7/8″ square, this piece should fit in the square panel for the side of the box that has the circle cut out of it. You may have to trim it so that it fits nicely and doesn’t interfere with the box folding. You can also use some of you recycled packaging for this :).
Once I had the acrylic in place, I folded the boxes and used a tape runner to hold them, make sure that you use a good sticking tape so that it holds together once you put the candy in it. You can always use double sided tape as well, most of those are really sticky. I used adhesive dots to keep the boxes closed once I added the candy to them.
I used a few Spellbinders dies in my project to decorate the boxes. I used Lacey Circles, Large Standard Circles and Snowflake bliss. You can find the item numbers for these dies below in my list of supplies. I used the lacy circles and snowflake bliss to cut out the shape, then I used the standard circles to cut out the center of the shape so that you will still have the window there. I show this in the above video.
I made a total of three boxes, they are so much fun to make!
Here is the first box I made:
I used the scalloped circles and the standard circles to decorate this box as well as a couple of felt holly leaves and some metallic pearls.
Here is the second box:
For this box I used the Snowflake bliss die set and the standard circles, I dressed it up with some pearls as well.
Finally here is the third box:
For this one I used the scalloped circles and standard circles again, dressed it up with some pearls and a little chipboard accent.
I used ribbon where the hole is for the pop stick, so that you could hang them on a tree.
I hope you enjoyed my project this week, below is a list of the supplies available at CutatHome that I used for my project:
I also used my Sizzix Big Shot which is available at the CutatHome site.
I used gems, ribbon, pattern paper, acrylic, glue dots and tape from my stock.
I hope you enjoy this project as much as I did, until next time Thanks and Happy Scrappin!
