Girl Bunny Box

Hi, Easter will be here before we know it, so I have been busy making this cute little girl bunny box. 

I used Bunny Hat Box from My Scrap Chick  for my box.  I left off the bird and made my bunny from Fun Foam.

 Bunny Hat Box file from My Scrap Chick
White poster board
9 by 11 inch white Fun Foam
Pink Cardstock by Coredinations
Bunny printed Cardstock by DCWV
Pink glitter cardstock by Coredinations
Black and white cardstock scraps
Pink Mulberry Paper Flowers by Prima
Small pink flower gem by Jots
1 1/2 inch wide sheer pink ribbon
5/8 inch wide gathered white lace trim
Xyron, glue, glue runner
Light blue and pink ink pads
0.4 black Cricut marker
White Gelly Roll pen

I made the box slightly larger than it imports, using white poster board for the body.  I used a combination of glue and glue runner and paper clips to hold it together while it dried. I cut the face panels, muzzle and ears from Fun Foam, inked the edges, and ran them through a Xyron before attaching them. The eyes were accented with the black Cricut marker and the white Gelly Roll pen.

The outer ears were attached to the pink ears pieces.

The ear pieces were attached to the hat base one at a time. 

I lined the ears up so they matched and attached them together. ( I used clips to hold the ears together, but the clips left marks, so I would use a different method next time.)

I attached the hat brim, then using glue runner and glue I added the gathered lace around the outside edge.

I added the printed panels that were inked along the edges with pink. I folded the pink ribbon in half, wrapped it around the hat as a hat band, then tied it into a bow. I added a double layered flower with a pink flower gem in the center, just above knot of the bow.

Isn't this Bunny Box the cutest thing? I love how it turned out! 

Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear what you think.

Mad Hatter Bunny Hat

One of my favorite files from My Scrap Chick is  the Uncle Sam Hat Box. I love figuring out new ways to use this versatile file. This time I used it to make a Mad Hatter Bunny Box.


Uncle Sam Hat Box
Bunny Top Hat Box (for the ears)
Jam Jar and Candle Gift Wrap (for the bow)
 Pixey Stix Glitter Pack by the Paper Studio
Grey felt from The Summer Sky Set by Cricut
Raspberry Confetti Peel & Stick Foam Sheet by Foamies
Paper Flowers by Jots
Butterfly Paper Accents by K & Company
Blue Diamond Wrap by Floral Garden
Small white silk flower
1/4 inch wide green ribbon

I made the hat following the PDF instructions. See how I put the hat together here:  I cut each of the long strips in half diagonally and alternated gluing them to the top and bottom of each section of the hat starting with the bottom section of a notched section. (See picture below.)

I made 6 inch ears using the Bunny Top Hat Box file. The larger piece was cut from grey Cricut felt and the inner ear was cut from the raspberry confetti foam.  I cut one inch off the bottom then glued the ears to the front of the hat. I cut a 1 inch by 9 inch strip of the blue dot cardstock and wrapped it around the base of the hat gluing it together in the front. I then made a 4 inch bow from the blue dotted cardstock and the bow from Jam Jar and Candle Gift Wrap, and wrapped the center with the blue Diamond Wrap. The finished bow was attached in front of the ears with foam tape and a little white silk flower was attached below the bow.

I made a bow from the ribbon and added the bow and a blue flower to the back with foam tape. A butterfly accent was added to the top of the inner box.

The inner box lifts out. This will make a cute Easter basket for one of my granddaughters.

I love how this little Mad Hatter Bunny Box turned out! What can you make with the Uncle Sam Hat Box?

Honeycomb Card

Hi! Today I am sharing a little card made with the Honeycomb Bee Card Bundle and Bee Greetings Printable PDF from My Scrap Chick. 

Bee Greetings Printable PDF: click to enlarge                Honeycomb Card Bundle of 6: click to enlarge                            

I also used Relax Barnaby from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.

My card is 5 by 7 inches and was made in Design Space. I used cardstock from the Confetti Stack by DCWV for the card base, white, light yellow and dark brown cardstock by Recollections for the mats. Using Design Space,  I attached the "Relax Barnaby" image to the honeycomb layer of the card. I colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils, then put together the layers of my card. I added small orange flower gems around the oval, and a yellow and brown ribbon bow to the bottom left. I printed the "Bee Greetings," cut out the greeting I wanted, and mounted it on brown, then the printed cardstock. I accented the sentiment with Prismacolor pencils and two flower gems, then mounted it to the top right of the image using foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy crafting!

Valentine Fairy Bear Booty Box

Valentines Day will be here before we know it, so it's time to get those projects for our loved ones finished.

I created this adorable booty box using the following files from My Scrap Chick.

Fairy Bear Girl Booty Box 
Triple Hearts Card Set
Be Mine Card Set
I Heart You Card Set
XO Hugs and Kisses Card Set
Rosettes Scallop Edge



pink, red and white  and green glitter cardstock by Colorbok
tan and pink pearlescent cardstock by Recollections
white and black glossy cardstock scraps
pink heart gems and pink round gems
inks in coordinating colors
black and white fine tip pens
adhesive and foam tape

The bear as made from tan pearlescent cardstock and the cheeks, flowers, collar and large wing was made with the pink pearlescent cardstock. The belly, flower, small wing and flower centers were made from pink glitter paper. The flower base was made from green glitter cardstock. All pieces were accented with coordinating inking around the edges. The gems were added to the collar. The finished box is about 6.5 inches tall and wide.



MSC files found hereand here.
Red, pink and white glitter cardstock by Colorbok
Pearlescent pink cardstock by Recollections
Uptown Flair Glitter Stack by the Paper Studio
Pixy Stix and Peanut Butter Hearts by Palmer (I found both at Dollar Tree)
2 inch heart punch
shish kabob skewers
1/4 inch wide pink ribbon
red glitter heart picks (optional)
Double sided tape, glue
paper clips

I made each pick about 2.5 inches wide, then duplicated each one and flipped it horizontally. I then used a combination of double sided tape and glue to attach a Pixy Stix between the two layers, then held them together with paper clips while they dried.

I used the Rosettes Scallop Edge for the heart candy rosettes. I followed the PDF tutorial included with the file and made each one about 3 inches in diameter. ( You will need two strips at 1.5 inches for each rosette.) I used the heart prints from the Uptown Flair Paper Stack for the rosettes. 

I turned the rosette to the back and glued a 6 inch stick into one of the valleys, then glued a 2 inch punched heart over the hole in the center.

I added double sided tape to the stick one inch from each end, then wrapped 1/4 inch pink ribbon around the stick. I then tied a bow around the top below the rosette.

I turned the rosette over to the front.

I added several strips of double sided tape to the back of the candy heart, then attached it to the center of the rosette.

I added some floral foam to the booty box, then poked the picks into the foam. I also added two red glitter picks to the box.

I love how this Valentine Fairybear Booty Box turned out!

I hope you enjoyed my little project. Have a wonderful Valentines Day!

Party Owls Gift Box Set

I can't believe that my granddaughter is turning 14! They grow up way too fast. Since she loves owls I made her this cute little gift box set using Party Owls from My Scrap Chick.

I used papers from the  Bella Flora paper pad by Craft Smith for the box and papers from my scraps stash for the hat. I duplicated the body and wings and flipped them horizontally for the back of the box. I added googly eyes to the owl and gems to the hat.

I attached the hat to the tag with foam tape and added pink twine.

Snowman Easel Match Box

Hi! Today I am sharing a cute snowman easel match box. I created this project by combining two files from My Scrap Chick, Snowman's Friend Easel Card and Sweet Nugget Matchboxes.

Snowman's Friend Easel Card: click to enlargeSweet Nugget Matchboxes: click to enlarge             

Keeping all the pieces grouped together, I started by making the easel card so it is six inches wide. I made the snowman using glitter cardstock from Coredinations. The rest of the card was made using papers from my stash. I attached the nose, hat brim and arm with foam tape to give the snowman dimension.  A snowflake and blue gem embellishment was added to the hat band. The sentiment was accented with snowflakes and also attached with foam tape. (My sentiment came from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.)

For the drawers I kept the file grouped together, then sized it so the box measured three inches across. I made two of these out of tagboard so they were sturdier. I glued the two boxes together, side by side, then wrapped them in a coordinating piece of heavy cardstock. The easel card was then attached on top of the two boxes.

I used my snowman box to gift some tea to a tea loving friend, but it would be great for any small treasures. I love how it turned out! 

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear what you think.

Snowman Box


We have definitely been having chilly weather lately - COLD! That made me think of snowmen and how to make one without freezing. I came up with this snowman box using four stacking boxes. Here's how I made him.


Creepy Crawlers Trio svg from My Scrap Chick
Snowman's Friend Easel Card svg from My Scrap Chick
 white tagboard
heavy black  cardstock 
black burst cardstock 
white glitter cardstock by coredinations
orange scrap cardstock
1 large and 4 small glitter snowflake stickers (from Dollar Tree)
1 snowflake gem and 6 small clear gems (from Dollar Tree)
blue Diamond Wrap (from Dollar Tree)
2 inch sheer snowflake wired ribbon (Walmart)
4 - 1/2 inch blue buttons
white glitter tape (Cricut)

I used the box from this set for my snowman.

Creepy Crawlers Trio: click to enlarge

I made three white boxes in graduated sizes, 5 3/4 inches, 5 1/4 inches and 4 3/4 inches across. I made the base layer from tagboard for stability then added mats of glitter cardstock to each panel on the boxes and lids.

The bottom of the two smaller boxes is glued to the lid of the next larger box. I added the blue Diamond Wrap around the band of the largest box lid and added four small snowflakes and blue buttons down the front of the bottom two boxes. I made a snowman face using the one from Snowman's Friend Easel Card  and added it to the front panel of the smallest white box.

For the hat I made a 4 1/4 inch black box and added mats from a black burst cardstock from my stash. I duplicated the octagon from the pattern and made one 6 1/4 inches in black, and one 5 1/2 inches from the burst cardstock. These were used to make the brim of the hat. The black box was placed upside down on the brim and glued in place. White glitter tape was wrapped around the outside of the black box lid to make a hat band. The large snowflake was added to the front of the hat and then accented with the snowflake gem and 6 clear gems.

Each of the boxes will open so you have four nice compartments to use for storing goodies.


I hope you liked my little snowman box. Thanks for stopping by!
