Today I have a 3D Christmas item for you. This one uses the Little Treat Box Dies. When I first started stamping, punch art was a big thing that I loved. Today I have used what I'm calling Die Cut Art. I'll explain as I go. But first, let me say that the Little Treat Box Dies are retiring. Here is my box.
I do have a video for this box later in this post. For this box you'll need a piece of Real Red card stock that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. Cut the box with your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. The die will cut the box and emboss the lines that you need to fold.
You will need to trim one of the arch sides. Line up on the trimmer and cut at 1 1/4 inches. I find it easier to use the measurements on the right side of the cut line on the trimmer.
Score the folds with your Bone Folder. Put the tabs of the front and back so that they go to the outside. The box sides will cover that up and it makes the inside of the box smooth. Glue the front of the box (short side).
Next cut a little less that 1/4 x 4 1/2 inch piece of Basic Black card stock. Making it just a little less than 1/4 allows it to fit through the slide from the Antique Corners &b Slides Elements. Slide it through to the middle of the black piece. Put a glue Dot behind the slide and attach in the middle of the front. Fold the card stock around and to the back of the box. Attach the ends with glue dots. Now add glue to the box and glue up the rounded side.
Punch out two circles with a regular hole punch. Lay them each on a glue dot, and then adhere to the front of the box above the belt.
The face for Santa begins with the Layering Circles dies. First cut a Whisper White scallop circle that is approximately 2 inches in diameter. Now cut a circle out of Petal Pink that is around 1 1/8 inches in diameter. Glue this circle to the white in the center but a little more to the top.
The hat is cut using the Stitched Triangles dies. Cut from Real Red using the 3rd largest isosceles die. Trim a little from each corner using your snips. Figure out where you want the hat to bend and fold. I found it easier to make a score line with my trimmer and then fold. Use a regular hole punch to punch the ball for the end of the hat from white paper.
The trim on the hat is found in the Dino dies. Can you believe that! It's a die for the spikes down the back. Cut from Whisper White. You will need to trim the sides. Hold up to your hat to determine exactly how big you need it. You do want this piece to adhere above the stitched line on the hat. (I have a video). Add the hat to the top portion of the Petal Pink face.
For the mustache, use the Poppy Moments dies. Cut from Whisper White. Add a punched Real Red circle behind the mustache so that it looks like a bit of mouth underneath. Add all to the face.
Finish up with colored pearls. These pearls were left from the old type of pearls we used to have that had some very tiny and some large pearls. Color the eyes with a Dark Basic Black blend and the nose with the Dark Real Red Blend. Give it several coats and allow time to dry. Then add to the face.
The face is added to the box with dimensionals. It does stick up above the arch from the back.
Here is the video.
I hope you'll try this. It's pretty easy to make. Add the treat of your choice. I added Hershey Kisses, but they were a tight fit. I got 5 in there.
