MIM #225

Die Cut Shaped Boxes

This week, Ashley  is up on Make It Monday.  She has a video HERE, which shows us how to use dies to transform them into treat boxes!  
Okay, I tried this a couple of times and thought, "Maybe I should skip this MIM challenge, even though I have entered 224 others!"
Well... "Noooo", my stubborn self said and I persevered until I created this:

Please forgive the poor quality, color distorted, inside picture.

  • I used PTI Stamper's Select White card stock and cut out 2 Spellbinder's Lacey Squares.  
  • Stamped the front with PTI "Fall Elegance" pumpkins then fussy cut two that are popped on top of the card base ones.
  • The grass is cut from a pp sheet and adhered to make this look like a pumpkin patch. There is also grass on the sides hiding some tape  :-) 
  •  The sides and bottom pieces (which were not-so-easy to attach) are Burnt Orange cardstock 
  • The crinkle grass inside is dark green (not black). 
It looks much cuter in real life and I'll try to get a better pic in the AM.


  1. So glad you persevered Helen...this is SO cute!! I never would have thought of using something as simple as a square, but I love it! Simple but yet is perfect for your little pumpkin patch! :0)
