One of yesterdays posts, I showed this little cutie –
I like to create my own patterns because of the challenge. I love that challenge of figuring something out! I bought the candy and designed the holder around it!
Today, I’ll give you a pictorial tutorial how I created it.
Start with a piece of card stock measuring 2 1/2 x 5. (Yes, a blue paper pattern resting on a well used Stampin’ pierce mat!)
Score on the short side 1/2, 2. Rotate and score along the long side at 2, 3 1/4, 3 3/4.
Note : I also scored at 2″ to the 1/2 score mark so I’d know where to cut away. In my pictures it’s already removed.
I made little notches where the creases intersect.
My grass was already cut. I adhered it to the portion of the box using Tombow Liquid Glue, facing out. You can use your favorite strong adhesive though.
At this point, create a basic box. Glueing grass flaps to the back. They do fold easily!
I decorated them after they were finished.
Please let me know what think if you recreate this little holder. I’d love to hear from you!
