In keeping with our once a month blog tutorial I decided to share a project I made using Eileen Hull Candy Box die for Sizzix. I previously made a tiki bar using that die shown on a seperate post but with summer right around the corner and end of the school year pool parties upon us, I needed a little treat box for my parties. So out came this versatile die.
I am using Webster's Pages Alison Kreft line. It just screams summer!
First start by putting your box together. I use a combination of wet glue and double sided tape.
To attach poles, take a straw cut into 3 inch pieces. Cut a strip of light weight chip board and slide down through straw on one end bend over at 1/2 inch. Punch holes 1/4 inch in from sides of the top and 3/4 inches from the back of the top of stand. Take a hot glue gun and put some glue in the hole of the top quickly slide the cardboard strips through the hole bend over and adhere it down. Take double sided tape and attach top to box.Now for the sign. Cut 2 pieces of cardstock 4 x 1 1/4 inches. I used stickers to spell out lemonade 50 cents. You could stamp the sign if you wanted. Glue to the top end of the straws and back with the other piece of cardstock.
Next add a piece of baker's twine and fussy cut out mason jars with lemonade in them and adhere to the twine with a tiny attacher next punch out various papers and attach them back to back to another piece of baker's twine. Hang from the lemonade stand.
This is how it looks so far without the balloons.
To make the mini album that goes inside you will need a 12 x 2 1/4 inch piece of patterned paper. Score every 2 1/4 inches on the 12 inch side until the 11 1/4 inch then score 1/4 inch. This will form the flap. Accordian fold then on the flap punch a hole and set an eyelet. Thread twine through eyelet.
