This pic shows a close-up of the Sizzix Bigz XL Scallop Box cut using the Big Shot. I cut the box in Gable Green, and stamped the leaves from another new set called Great Friend in Versamark along the edges of all pieces. I created my window by using the new Scalloped Oval punch that's new in this Mini catalog. The punched out scalloped oval was used above on the flap of the box. I punched 1 scallop circle and large oval in Pixie Pink (after stamping the sentiment) and glued these down on the flap as seen below. I cut a small rectangle from one of the cellophane bags and glued that down inside around the window before final assembly. The box flaps were glued down, then I added dots with a black marker and a ribbon bow to the top. The butterfly from Great Friend was stamped in Pixie Pink ink and quickly heat-embossed in clear embossing powder. It was trimmed out and glued onto the box. Finally, and most importantly :) , yummy jellybeans were added last. A perfect Easter treat!
Chinese Take Out Box
Finally, this little box was created from another template (here's one for ya). I used DSP from the Delicate Dots selection (a Sale-A-Bration goodie!) and cut the template with it. I glued the flaps down and tied an Old Olive ribbon around it. The duck comes from Wagon Full of Fun, another new set from the Mini, and is colored in with markers on watercolor paper. I used my aquapainter to "swipe away" areas of the colored marker to highlight the duck and ribbon to give it a bit of depth. (This is a cool technique and you should try it out!) The duck was cut out and glued to the side of the box. The label was attached last and is lightly sponged and matted on Bashful Blue cardstock.
