Quick & Easy Tutorial!!

Last week I shared a Tutorial over on the Whimsie Doodles blog and wanted to share it here too just in case you missed it!!

Looking for a Quick & Easy way to decorate one of those boring ready made boxes that can be found in the $ bins or at your local craft store?? I found these fun little take-out boxes awhile back and thought that they would be perfect for a little Valentine treat!! Having a hard time matching the box...why not cut one apart and use as coordinating paper on your tag.

Supplies Needed:
-Ready Made Box
-Craft Knife
-Die Cut (Heart Cuttlebug Die used)
-Die Cut Machine
-Transparency/Acetate
-Strong Double Sided Tape (Red Line/Scor Tape)
-
Removable Tape








Step 1:

Run craft knife carefully along seam to open box

Step 2:
Attach die to desired area with removable tape and run through die cut machine. May need to fold up edges to run through machine smoothly.

Step 3:
Place two sided tape around desired window area and seam. Will need to attach acetate/transparency to create window.

Step 4:
Put box back together.

Step 5:
Fill box & Decorate as desired.

Happy Stamping!!
