I made these for some children I was visiting. I filled them with sweets, they are great for the children to play with their toys and using their imagination become more than just a box with sweets.

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Tim Hotz idea-ology paper
  • Papermania Home for Christmas paper
  • Green paper
  • Yellow paper
  • Purple paper
  • Strong double sided tape

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

For just one of the boxes I cut 2 x the double wall for the boxes using the Tim Holtz ideology Advantus Seasonal Kraft Resist Paper Stash, this is quite heavy paper, I think it is 635 grammes. As I used my Cricut mini personal electronic cutter I couldn't cut on the suggested 10 inch setting, so I cut it as large as possible, which on my mini was 9.5 inches. So I set the height as 9.5 inches Aa for all the cutting of this project. I folded along all the fold lines. It took me a while to click as to which part of the wall was going to form the base and which the roof. Once I realised it was much easier. On the third photograph I've labelled the roof A and the base of the box B. Then I glued the box together with the strong double sided tape, it needed to be strong to hold together as the card was so strong.
I added a second layer to the cutting mat. I cut again on 9.5 inches, I didn't need to alter the height as I had set it to this for the whole project. I cut 1 x cut the 2 square windows, the round window, the tub for the flowers, the door knob, the door frame and the sweet shop sign in yellow card.
Again on height 9.5 inches. I cut, on layer three on the mat, the grass and the flower in the pot in green.
The final cut at 9.5 inches height, on layer four, I cut in purple. This comprised of the door, inner window, flower head and the words for the sign.
I glued on the door, then the door frame and door knob. Then the square window frames. I glued the inside of the round window into the round window frame, then glued it to the box. I stuck the words to the sign. The flower head and flower pot to the green flower plant. I stuck the flower plant onto the box, the grass around the bottom of the box. I stuck the signage to the box. Finally I added the roof, this wasn't stuck on as it forms the lid to the box.
