Strawberries in a Box!

I was looking at Sara's blog today (I check her blog out every day, she's one busy lady!!!) and she had a picture of her acetate box. It's SO cute. Hop on over there to her blog Sara's Creative Adventure and have a look see. She participated in the SplitCoastStampers (SCS) Technique Lover's Challenge. I've never actually participated in that challenge though I have done a few of their projects after seeing them on blogs or on the SCS website.

I had gotten some pretty fancy Cream Savers. There was a mix of flavors, apple pie (yum) cinnamon roll (yum again!!) and strawberry. Notice no "yum" there??? I'm not a big strawberry fan. I don't like strawberries because of the seed things on them but I do like strawberry twizzlers!! So some strawberry flavored things are ok. But for the most part they would be the last things I would pick!!!

And now I'm REALLY glad I didn't eat them!!! They look SO cute in this box!!! I made these boxes last October for Halloween. I'm hoping to find some better eyeballs this year!!! These boxes are a lot of fun to play with and extremely easy to make. I added a little scallops to mine to give it a bit more flair. I don't have the new scallop punch yet but I will be getting it soon and it will save me a few minutes of punching!! And I bet it's a lot less messier too!!

So you will need to hop on over to Sara's blog to get the link to the instructions for this box. She lists it right away in her post. I have a few more ideas I want to work up using this box but I don't have time right now. It's on my list of things to make. I need to get to work on my next Technique Page. The 500,000 hits mark is coming up fast!!

This item was made using current Stampin' Up! products. To view more items made using Stampin' Up! products click here.

Thanks SO much for stopping by,

Hi! I've been wanting to make one of these boxes! But I printed the directions out and I'm confused, so it remains un-tried. The top cardstock you actually cut apart all of the sides up to the red score part (1/2")??? It seems like you would score all the sides instead. Anyway, maybe I'll practice on a paper first?

Yours looks really awesome though--love the strawberry on the front!
