Die Cut Easter Boxes

I am REALLY loving this new die cut Stampin' Up has in the catalog. All you do is add a half sheet of 12" x 12" paper, run it through the Big Shot and it comes out all scored and ready to assemble. There's no extra cutting or scoring needed at all. Unless you want to add the window.

Because I was making more than one box I cut a window template and just traced the cut out area on the inside of the box. It made it easier and quicker to do the holes. I used the 1-1/8" punch to make the window. It goes a lot quicker than cutting it out by hand!!! And a nicer edge too!!! When doing a window make sure you move it down far enough so when you close the lid the part you tuck in doesn't show in the window. Yup, you guessed it, I did it!!! And trust me, it looks awful peeking through the upper part of the window!!!! LOL But I only made one like that!!! Getting smart in my old age!!!! LOL

I added a piece of acetate inside and then assembled the box. You only glue the side tab and the rest is just tuck and fold!!! I glued the window and the tab with tacky glue. Mostly because it was in front of me and I've used it before for this very thing and I know it works!

Once the box was assembled I filled it with candies and tucked the flap in. Then I tied a ribbon around the box and made a big bow! Simple as that! These boxes can be used for SO many occasions. Just let your imagination run with it!!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by,
