Lollipop Box and Cards Set

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 created a set of three 4.25 x 4.25 note cards and a little "Lolli Box"

To create the LolliBox
I started with a square piece of paper that measures 3.75". I scored it on all four sides at 1.25"
Once all four sides are scored, I proceeded to make some cuts.

Here is how I trimmed it. I cut a slit up to the first line on the score line that is to the right. I then snipped a slight angle off on both sides of the corner. Then I turned the piece a quarter turn to the right and repeated this process. I did for all four sides. I also trimmed just a bit off of each corner. This way it will fold up much easier and remain flush.

Once all the cutting was done, I added adhesive to the opposite side of the cut flaps. See photo. Notice the tabs are bent forward. You can see the adhesive and the way I cut them at an angle.

I then layered a white home onto a kraft cardstock home. The only reason I did this is so that looking at the finished box from the back side will make this seem much more cohesive.

Here I am coloring the bird houses.

Here's a view of the box once it is assembled. It does fit the lollipop pretty good. It is a tootsie roll lollipop. 

Here is where I added mats to 3 of the sides. There are just 1" mats.

Here's a look as I was assembling the die pieces to create the adorable Bunny Cottage. Once I finished, I glued it to the front of the box.

Here is the finished Lollibox. I added the "tree and sign" from the Spring Chicken die set. The top of the tree is from the Carrot House die. I cut it out in some cute Doodlebug patterned paper.

Here's a closer look at the Pink Home. I put a sweet little brown bunny in this one. I added some dew drops to the top left corner of each card. Just for a little something extra~

Here's a closer look at the Purple Home. I went with a gray bunny here.

Here is a closeup of the card with the Yellow home. I did another little brown bunny here.

Here is one last look at the cards and the Lolli box. I think this set turned out very nice.

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