I've had this little box sitting around for awhile so I decided to do something
fun and different and with it.
Sizzix - Eileen Hull Box, Square Die
Sizzix Sizzles Mat Board
Sizzix Big Shot Die Cutting Machine
1 Sheet of American Crafts Paper (Beach theme)
Julie Nutting Collette Doll Stamp
Julie Nutting Buff Paper Pad
Graphic 45- BY THE SEA Paper Pad (8"x8")
Black Stazon Ink
Battery Operated Tea Light (Dollar Store)
Using the Big Shot I die cut the box from the mat board, and assembled according to the directions
on the packaging. I then cut 1 strip of my Beach Paper to 12" x 3" horizontally. With the remaining 12" x 9" peace I cut 1 strip vertically centering the part of the design I wanted to use on the paper. I then cut the vertical strip into 3 - 3"x3" squares. Next I glued the squares onto the 3 sides and cut the 1 strip horizontally 3" x 9 1/2" and glued to the back. From the remaining scrap of papers
cut two more 3" x 3" squares for the top and bottom of the box, and one strip 3" X 4 1/2" for the inside cover glue into place. From the scraps of the extra mat board cut a 3" x 3 1/3" strip and score one end at 1/2". Cut a hole in the center of the square to fit the candle bulb. Glue the 1/2" strip to the front of the box opening so it opens from back to front. Put candle in place and set box aside.
Nest I stamped the Collette doll onto a flesh tone paper from the Buff Paper Collection, but before cutting her out I glued her to a thin piece of cardboard this gives her stability. I then cut her dress and hair bow from the G45 papers and glued to the body. I stamped her hair on a golden colored paper from the Buff Paper Collection and fussy cut, and glued into place. Set aside.
To make the Sand go to Ranger Ink Website and look for Tim Holtz Faux Sand Recipe. It's made with Rangers Melt Art Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel, Ranger Distress Black and Antique Linen Embossing Powders, Distress Gold Glitter and Glossy Accents.
Using a popsicle stick trim 3 sides of the box and the top with the faux sand mixture. (See picture above for placement). Glue on the doll and shells and any other trinkets with the glossy accents. Let dry overnight.
I hope you enjoyed this project.
