Mr. & Mrs. Frankie Treat Boxes


Sorry I haven't posted much this week, but it's been SO busy in the Turnbow house.

I have a class on Saturday with my girls, and this is one of the projects we'll be making. You'll have to tune in next week or over the weekend to see the rest. :)

The Frankie face was inspired by many that I've seen. If it was your original idea, send me a quick note and I'll be happy to give you credit. I didn't CASE anyone specifically. The Frankette idea hit me when I saw the pink cardstock out on my desk. LOL.. there is always pink cardstock on my desk! The little bow stamped in her hair is from the Just Jawing stamp set with a Round Rhinestone brad in the center. Frankie's eyelids are raised up with dimensionals.

OMGosh.. these were SO easy to make if you have the Big Shot! I'm totally whipping these out for my daughter's classroom this year. Okay... so my heart needs some work, but I did it on a whim. Here is what the back of the treat boxes look like.


And from the side:




I used the box in my previous post that was designed by Jody Morrow. See previous post for a link to her tutorial. I modified it slightly by doing the following:

I cut my card stock 6x 11 and scored the 11 inch side at 4.5 and 6.5 with the Scor-Pal. Then I flipped the cardstock so that the six inch side is at the top of my Scor-pal and scored at 1.5 and 4.5. I then slid it into my Fiskers cutter and cut on the score line from the top of the 6 inch side down to the center score line. I did that on each score line for a total of four times. Then, I slid the 11 inch end into my fiskers again and cut off two inches of the flaps we just made. I then used my Scallop Edge punch and centered it along the ends to make the ends pretty.Fold and glue.

Instead of glueing the sides like I did with the Baby one, I left these unglued to make it easier to get into the box. I also closed them differently by using the Slot Punch and ribbon. If you don't like the ribbon showing, you can tuck the bow down inside.

*Make sure when you are adhering your faces on, that you do not add any adhesive around the slot punch so that you can slide the ribbon through.

Supplies:

Stamps: Just Jawing (for Frankette)
Paper: Green Galore, Pink Passion, Elegant Eggplant, Basic Black, Whisper White.
Ink: Green Galore, Black Stampin Write Marker.
Other: Sponge, Rhinestone Brad, Grograin Black and Gingham Ribbon, Slot Punch, 1 Inch Circle, 1/2 inch circle Punches, Round Tab Punch, Scallop Edge Punch, This Way Punch, White Uniball Gel Pen, Dimensionals, Scor-pal, Big Shot, Top Note Die, Small Cello Bags, Candy.

I may have time to write up a tutorial for my customers, if I do , I will share, but I think the directions above and Jody's tutorial, you won't have any problems. These are EASY PEASY! :)

Thanks for stopping by... see ya tomorrow for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge!
