Cute Little Apple Box

My friend Cindy and I were playing with the Curvy Keepsake Box thinlit die a few weeks ago creating projects for the Stamp, Scrap & Create Retreat that we are hosting this month.  With that on my mind I came up with the idea to make an apple!  With school just starting and apple picking season upon us wouldn’t that little box be a perfect apple.  A few weeks have passed by and I’ve been busy traveling as you may have noticed so I didn’t get to try to make an apple until this week.  I decided to use it for one of my Stamper’s Club projects for Friday night.  Look at how cute it turned out –

Here is how I made it:

  • I cut the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlit die out of Real Red card stock. You cut two pieces and glue the bottoms together – I used the new Fast Fuse adhesive – its sticky.
  • Then I sponged all the edges with Cherry Cobbler ink and a Stampin’ Sponge.  I wanted it to have some darker areas around the edges on the apple.
  • I filled the inside of the box with caramels – of course.
  • On the handle I tied some Pear Pizzazz ribbon.
  • Stamped “hello Sweet Friend” in Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White card stock and cut it with the oval shaped tag that comes with the box thinlits.
  • I cut a leaf from Pear Pizzazz card stock using the small leaf die in the Fall Fest Framelits.  Glued that to the base of my tag.
  • I wanted to add just a little something else to the tag so I pulled out a Real Red candy dot and put that on it.  But it made me think of a lady bug – so I decided sure – it can be a lady bug – I pulled out one of my Project Life journaling pens and added dots to the dot and two little antenna for the lady bug.  Cute!
  • I tied on my tag with some Real Red Bakers’ Twine.
