Yesterday I shared a box filled with chocolate and today my project is the same box but I’ve added an opening to the front so the recipient can see the goodies inside! I used the Basket Bunch stamp set and matching Basket Builder Framelits Dies. If you’d like to see the tutorial for making the box, it can be seen HERE in yesterday’s post.
The opening was made using one of the 16 dies in the Layering Circle Framelits. This set also includes scalloped circles, like the one pictured below.
The next step is to add a piece of clear acetate or film over the opening. Be sure to add this BEFORE you assemble your box. Hmmm, wonder why I know that!?! Actually you can still maneuver a piece inside the box once you’ve assembled it but its trickier to do. You can use one of our Window Sheets for this step or in my case, I didn’t have any on hand but I did have some Clear Medium Envelopes and cut a piece of that. It worked fine!
My first box above, does have a covering over the opening and the one below doesn’t (I like it better when it is covered).
The sentiment is included in the same stamp set as the bunnies and eggs – Basket Bunch. The sentiment was stamped onto Whisper White card stock with Memento Ink. Then I trimmed it to the size I wanted and added the notches at the end.
I love to see YOUR creations so please email me and share your box!
