Hello Spring Chicken Pop Up Slider Treat Box

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

I decided to make a little Pop Up treat box! Check out this fun interactive box.

Here it is closed and standing on an angle.
Here's a look at it with the little "drawer" slightly opened.

I started by creating the box base. It comes from a 7x7 piece of cardstock. I simply scored it on all four sides at 1" and 2" . I cut the squares and trimmed in the "flaps" just slightly.

I added adhesive and began to fold the sides up.

I made sure to add some ribbon around one of the two sides that has the flaps. This way the ribbon wouldn't pull out as I used it as a "pull" See photo above and below.

I turned in all four sides and that gave the interior of the box some sturdiness and gave it a finished off look.

Next, I turned to making the box "top" or belly band if you will. I used the largest die from the Slimline Stitched Rectangle set. I then scored it to match the top and sides.

I then added glue to the back side of the largest slimline scallop stitched die. I glued this to the pink "top" we just made. See photos above and below.

I scored the mats again once the white was adhered to the pink.

I then used the second smallest die from the double stitched rectangle set.

I ran it through my die cut machine a couple of times and it cut out fine. 

Next, I burnished the score lines and then ran a bead of glue along one of the seams and adhered the two ends together. 

I cut a strip of pink paper 1x4". Scored it and that is the base for the easel part.
Once I attached it to the under side 

Here's what it looks like with nothing in the box and once it was adhered to the inner top of the top and the center of the inside of the box. Here are some additional photos at varying stages of it opening.

Here is a pic of it closed.

I proceeded to decorate one of the square scallop eyelet stitched dies with the cute Spring Chicken Die. I added the word Hello from the Hello Spring Bunny Cottage Die.

Here is another photo of the sweet little box open. Inside is a bunch of sweet "chewy" little (bubblegum) eggs.

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