Don't you love when you find something that just perfectly coordinates with your stamps?
I almost squealed out loud when I saw this package of gum at the checkout at Target. So cute, right? I couldn't wait to get home so I could make this sample! I pulled out my Lots to Love Box framelit dies and the Magical Day bundle and got to work.
1..Cut out 2 of the Lots to Love Box framelit.
2. Measure the gum packet from the bottom to where you want the circle to begin (7/8"). Use the #5 circle (#1 being the smallest) Layering Circle framelits and position it at 3/4" from the bottom edge of the box. Why the difference? There is about a 1/8" rim from the edge of the framelit to the actual cutting edge of the framelit. Cut out the circle. Assemble the box. Insert the gum packet. You may need to adjust it slightly to fit and have the unicorn show through the window.
3. Stamp the unicorn from the Magical Day stamp set. Color using Stampin' Write markers. I used Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay, and Lemon Lime Twist. I used a Q-tip to add a little Pink Pirouette cheek blush to mimic the unicorn on the gum. Cut out the unicorn using the Magical Mates Framelits dies.
4. Wrap the 3/8" Lemon Lime Twist Mini Striped Ribbon around the box and tie a bow. Attach the unicorn using Dimensionals.
5. Use a Black Stampin' Write marker and color in the sentiment only on the stamp from the A Good Day stamp set and punch out using a 1" circle punch. Punch out a Lemon Lime Twist 1-1/8" Scallop Circle. Layer the punches and attach to the box using a Stampin' Dimensional.
I am entering this project in the What Will You Stamp challenge#156 Magical Day. I would encourage you to check out the challenge! The Lots to Love Box frameltis are the best!. So many fun ways to use them, kind of like the little black dress of framelits.
