Welcome to the hot summer to those living in the Northern Hemisphere! To help us keep cool this month, Eileen Hull has just released two fun box dies for winter! Mitten Box and Snowman Box.
Today I'm sharing my Mitten Box!
I die cut all of the pieces for the mitten box out of white matboard. Then I die cut a second mitten out of matboard. I die cut two mittens and the box piece out of designer paper. The second mitten has to be cut with designer paper turned to the other side so that the thumb is facing the same way as the first cut. I glued the designer paper die cuts to the matboard die cuts.
I die cut the hearts and zig zag piece out of white matboard. Then I die cut the hearts again out of red Glitter Cardstock from Michaels and glued them to the matboard hearts.
Before adhering the pieces together, I sponged the insides of both mittens with Ranger Distress Faded Jeans onk. Then I laid a knit/pearl stencil over the mitten and sponged again through the stencil using the same ink.
I folded the tabs on the box piece and adhered it to the inside bottom of the mittens using ScorTape. I went over the white edges of the mitten and box with a blue Copic.
I left the inside of the box white since I'd be filling it with a treat.
This fun winter treat box will hold about 6 Hershey Kisses depending on how high you pile them! You could put the treats in a clear bag and place that in the mitten box. That way you could include more goodies!
The mittens are 5" tall x 3 1/2" wide (to the thumb!) the treat box measures 2" x 1 1/4".
I added clear flower sequins to the center of many of the snowflakes on the mittens for a little dimension and sparkle!
I had the perfect sentiment stamp for my Mitten Box!
Stamped on a sentiment strip and adhered on the front mitten.
Every Wednesday for the month of July, both Eileen's Inspiration Team and Education Team will be posting creative boxes using both the Mitten Box and the Snowman Box - so please be sure to check out Eileen's blog!
