A Pumpkin with a Sweet Treat and A Shaker Giftbox That Shines

Day Three of Glue Arts week and we have two more fun projects to share!!

We will be giving away some great Scor-pal and GlueArts prizes so be sure and leave a comment each day this week! There will be two winners randomly selected from all comments throughout the week. One will receive a Scor-pal scoring tool and the other will receive an assortment of  great GlueArts products. You have until 8am CDT on Monday to leave comments. We will announce the winners later that day both here and on the Scor-pal Fan Page.

Once you are finished here be sure and stop by and visits the GlueArts blog as to see what they are up to as well. Also, don't forgot to visit the GlueArts fan page and, of course, stop by the Scor-pal Fan page.  There we have some great prize giveaways, contests, ideas and more.

Now for today's designs!


First off is our Pumpkin Card by designer Lisa Andrews that holds a sweet treat inside:

 Double Dots paper: Bo Bunny; UCutIt foam:GlueArts; Scor-pal scoring tool and Scor-Tape


Step 1: Cut six ovals (three for each side) from Double Dots paper, I used Creative Memories cutting system, 3 ½” x 5” oval using the red blade.


Step 2:  Adhere two of the ovals with Scor-Tape, as shown, this is the back of your card
 


Step 3:  Repeat for the front of the card, expect use Glue Arts foam sheet to attach the middle oval
 

 
Step 4:  Using the back piece, line the bottom of the pumpkin up with the left gutter and score at 3 ½”
 


Step 5: for candy pocket, use a 3 x 2 piece of paper and score ½” and ¼” on three sides, snip off the corners and fold to create a pocket.  Adhere it to the inside of the card with Scor-Tape.




Step 6:  Using brown cardstock freehand a stem and score every ¼”, attach the stem in between the front and back pumpkin.   Attach front of card on the back using Scor-Tape.   Decorate as you please!  I used the Heartswirl Doohickey die from Magnolia for the tendrils.



Here is a peek at the inside of the card: 

And a side view of how it stands open:

Thanks, Lisa!


Our next project is a Shaker Gift box with lots of sparkle brought to you by designer Tami Mayberry:

Supplies: Card stock: Bazzill Prismatics, Patterns: Bo Bunny Press (lid/stars), Bella Blvd (box sides); Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts; U Cut if Foam:GlueArts; Scor-pal scoring tool; Designer Adhesives Foil:Clearsnap; Glitter and Sparkle Fibers: Clearsnap; Gems: Want2Scrap; clear acetate
For this box I began with the One Cupcake Box tutorial by Scor-pal Designer Kittie Franken.

When making the base of the box I skipped the part of step 3 of adding an opening and instead added a shaker style lid with the aid of GlueArts UCutIt foam, double sided foam adhesive.

After step 6 of the tutorial we begin the process of creating the shaker lid.
 Begin by cutting a foam square roughly the size of your lid/base (in this case 4x4). Then cut another square from the center of the previous square. I used Spellbinders dies for both steps.


Once you have your frame cut, place it on the scored panel to be used for the lid positioning within the center scores and use a pencil to trace the opening. Cut opening using die or craft knife. Fold sides of lid as directed in original tutorial.


If your foam is larger than lid (as shown below) simply trim to fit. Once you have a nice fit, cut two clear square slightly smaller than foam frame. I used the backing from a clear stamp set but you can use recycled packaging, acetate, transparencies or any other clear material. Adhere one square to the frame, fill with glitter or other filler and cover with second clear piece. (Sample uses dilver glitter and sparkle fibers form Clearsnap) Adhere finished shaker to inside of lid and decorate finished box as desired.

 I used the piece of foam that I cut from the center of the frame along with Design Adhesives Foil from Clearsnap to create shiny 3D stars. I used my Spellbinders dies to cut a star from the UCutIt foam and then simply peeled the backing off of one side, placed the foil on and peeled off leaving a sparkle finish.


Here are some more peeks of the final result:



Thanks for stopping by once again. 
We will see you tomorrow with more projects!

What a sweet pumpkin card. A great way to give a little sweet to an adult; most of us look enviously at all the goodies the kids get and wish we could get a little ourselves! And the box is gorgeous; so many ways to use a beautiful box.
