Liz here today to share with you another fun project featuring products our
August sponsor: Fancy Pants!!!! –
LOVE their products!
With Back to School around the
corner, I am sharing another B2S related project. This time an Apple shaped box
with a few magnets and treats inside,
Fancy Pants, Meology and Everyday Circus Flair Paper and Embellishments
Quilling metal dies for leaves and “paper grass”
Paper for grass
Strong hold adhesive of your choice
MKC’ apple SVG file
For the magnets I removed the foam dimensional from the back
of the embellishments and replace it with adhesive backed magnet tape.
For the box I used eCraftshop Pro to resize MKC Apple SVG. I
created blackouts out of thin chip board and red card stock (for the interior layer, liner) and shadows
out of red card stock (exterior layers) to create the bases of the box and the
lid. The lid is slightly bigger than the box so it would fit snuggly ;).
Cut (2) 6”x3” strips
of Fancy Pants corrugated paper, score at ¼” on one of the wider edges and
create a fringe to help you adhere to the chipboard pieces.
To join two strips of paper, “split” the corrugated card
stock, by separating the layers and then “sandwich” the new strip between the
For the lid I used “1.5” wide strips for the contour instead
of the 3” wide.
Finish by glueing a “shadow cut”
to the bottom of the box and a complete “half apple” cut to the lid. Crimple
several paper strips to create the “grass” place inside of the box along with
the magnets and a few treats for a sweet back to school gift!
As always thank you for stopping by, have a super crafty
