Candy Bar Box With Cottage Cutz Dies

Happy Terrific TuesDIE crafty friends!
Melinda here with you for another fun Tuesday. My project features a couple of dies from the new SPRING RELEASE along with some others! Here's what I created.

I decided to make a candy bar box! Yep... on top of being adorable, this little pretty holds a wonderful surprise!

I started by creating a template for the box base. I measured the size of the candy bar and worked from there. The box is approximately 6" wide and 2.5" high. The depth is just a bit under a half inch.

Once the box base was completed, I turned to my Cottage Cutz dies. I used the beautiful scallop stitched slimline die set to create the base and the cover of my box. I matted them with some yellow cardstock. Here you see I attached my box to the base scallop stitched die panel.

I then went to work coloring the pieces from both the rose die and the tulips and grass from the 

Here is a closeup of the roses and foliage from the Floral Spray die. I also used the bow from the sweet little Miss Bunny die. I mounted them onto a yellow cardstock mat. That mat along with the lavender cardstock mat was mounted onto the stitched eyelet square die. You can see I finished it off with some dots of stickles to give it all a bit of sparkle.

For the inside of the box, I kept it very simple. I added a mat of some lavender cardstock. I then mounted some yellow cardstock onto a double-stitched rectangle die from that set. For a little decorative touch, I added a couple more tulips from the spring sheep die.

Here is a closer look at some of the tulips and grass from the Spring Sheep die.

This is a closer look at the tulips on the other side. You can see I added some dots of stickles for a little extra sparkle!

Here is one last look at my creation. I think it turned out super cute and quite delish!!!!

Once I get it completely diagrammed out, I will share the template for the box. So stay tuned!

The Dies I used to create this project:
I used the Stitched Scallop version. That one is currently unavailable, but this is an excellent alternative.

Well that about covers it for today! Until the next time, have a wonderfully crafty day!
