Aren't these fun for fall decor?
Using the Tall Box file from SVGCuts' Gift Box collection. Tall box is is 6.5 inches tall finished (does not include stem); the middle box is 5.125 inches tall finished (does not include stem); the small box is about 3.875 inches all (not including stem).
I used stencils - the lines are 1/2 inch wide. The "dots" are about 1in in diameter. The chevron is a free pattern from Bird's Cards and can be found here. All three stencils were cut on the Sizzix eclips. It sure makes slick work for cutting the stencils on transparency of heavy cardstock. I prefer the transparency to ensure lining up the across the cut cardstock.
I used all white cardstock to begin with for the box bottoms and the lids. For best results, color before assembling the boxes.
The Craftwell ebrush was used to color these and I used a fine tipped orange sharpie marker (we picked ours up at a local Walmart) for the main design and I used a very light brown (Spectrum Noir) for the crackled effect around the boxes. Simple, but fun. Change up the patterns and colors for even more fun! Don't have an eBrush yet, use a blender tool and some ink... that works too.
Once all the "painting" is done, assemble the boxes. These are pretty straight forward using just the box pattern and lid pattern. The lids are all one piece and the box is the 2 side pieces and a bottom.
The stems and leaf from the Pick A Pumpkin kit is cut at the original size for the tall box. Adjust as needed for the medium and small box.
