Duck in the Box!

I had gotten these adorable duck soaps from Avon and knew exactly what I wanted to do with them!!! Redo the box using a Stampin' Up! stamp. Actually when I saw the duck soap I thought of that new duck stamp. It's SO cute and the soap was cute so adding the two together you couldn't lose!!! LOL

I used The Super Deluxe Tuck Box Template Maker to do the box. The link to it is located on the right sidebar of this blog. Just scroll down until you come to the "My Mood" icon, it's just above that. All you do is enter in the measurements you want the box to be and it can make most boxes for you. I say most because it is a tuck box and it's got flaps and your paper may not be big enough for the size box you want. When that happens I usually end up using 12" x 12" card stock for the box and just score lines and do a flap over flap box. And there are even times when I have to omit the box idea because it's just too big for my project. But most of the time I can make them work. I will make half the box on one piece of card stock and the other half on another piece. I do make sure I add a flap on each piece so I can attach them together and have one box when I'm done! Simple as that!!

I stamped the duck on white card stock using black StazOn ink. I cut out the duck and then I colored it in with markers. I cut it out first because I have found that when I color them first and then cut them out my fingers pick up the ink and when I turn the image to cut on another side of it I transfer the ink and ruin the whole image. SO after learning what was making the mess on my work I started cutting out my images first.

To affix it to the box you can use Tacky glue and a toothpick. Those little feet don't need much glue!! I tied a ribbon around the box. It just seemed like it needed a little something more and that ribbon just added the right touch, didn't it?

Thanks SO much for visiting! Do something creative today!
