It’s time for the 06-2020 APPT Blog Hop! This month’s kit is called Box of Sunshine, and it’s all about sending some sunshine to those who need it. Even the box is yellow, and there’s a label in the kit that covers the Paper Pumpkin logo, so you can mail some sunshiney goodies in it. For my alternate projects today, I used the kit to make a Scrappy Strip card and a treat box.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Poppy Parade card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Basic Black CS layer cut to 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″
  • Basic Black CS layer cut to 5″ x 3-3/4″
  • front of two card bases from the kit cut to 4-5/8″ x 3-3/4″, then cut into random strips (I cut them together so the strips would be the same on both)
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card base
  • Basic Black CS cut to 7-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ and scored at 2-1/2″ and 5″ in both directions
  • Basic Black CS cut to 4-1/16″ x 4-1/16″ and scored 3/4″ from all four sides

Stamped with the Box of Sunshine stamp set:

  • sentiment in Poppy Parade ink onto two of the provided die cut labels

Cut using the Layering Circles Dies:

  • 2 scalloped circles from a scrap of Gold Foil Sheet
  • 1 larger scalloped circle from a scrap of Basic Black CS

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the Poppy Parade card base with a Bone Folder
  • card front strips glued onto the 5″ x 3-3/4″ Basic Black CS layer, about 1/16″ apart, alternating strips from the two different card fronts
  • strip layer glued onto the 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″ Basic Black CS layer
  • 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″ Basic Black CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • a sun die cut adhered onto a gold foil scalloped circle using Stampin’ Seal
  • gold foil scalloped circle adhered onto the Basic Black scalloped circle
  • Basic Black scalloped circle glued onto the strips
  • one of the sentiments glued onto a scrap of Basic Black CS, then trimmed the mat using Paper Snips
  • matted sentiment adhered over strips and sun using Black Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

Assembled the box:

  • burnished the folds in the two Basic Black CS box pieces with a Bone Folder
  • using Paper Snips, cut the two pieces as shown below
  • flaps of the smaller piece glued onto the inside of the adjacent sides to form the lid
  • a sun die cut adhered onto a gold foil scalloped circle using Stampin’ Seal
  • gold foil scalloped circle adhered onto the Basic Black lid using Stampin’ Seal
  • sentiment glued onto a scrap of Basic Black CS, then trimmed the mat using Paper Snips
  • matted sentiment glued onto the sun die cut on the lid
  • folded up the sides of the box and put the lid on top
  • NOTE: You can glue the sides of the box, but I like the way they fall open when the lid is removed.
