Monday we had an early school dismissal due to bad weather. This meant our rehearsal for the Middle School musical was cancelled. (Sigh) We really can’t afford to lose a rehearsal at this point, so we will make it up on Friday evening. Yuck. I really don’t like Friday rehearsals. But, it is what it is. The show must go on.
So, how about a hint of summertime for today’s project? – A fun little Pineapple treat box.
I used the Sale-A-Bration Tutti-Frutti cards for the box. I started with the card base. Since it is already scored , I trimmed 1/4″ of one side. Giving me a 8 1/4″x5 1/2″ base. Next I scored every 2″ along the 8 1/2″ side. Turned and scored up 2″ o the 5 1/2″ side. Next cut the bottom tabs so the box will fold together and trim off the extra 1/4″ piece on the bottom. Hopefully the photo below helps my explanation.
Assemble the box and pinch the top together. I cut the green top by hand and glued it inside the top before closing it up. I punched out notches on each side with a 1/4″ hand held punch and wrapped Linen Thread around to hold the box shut. The little tag features the Tutti-frutti designer series paper and the Fruit Basket set and matching punches.
I just love that tiny little pineapple! A fun summertime treat in the midst of winter.
Thanks for stopping by! Happy Stamping!
