The cartridge I challenged myself to create with was Garden Soup. I fell in love with all the honeycomb and hexagon boxes and knew they would make the cutest treat holders.
Directions for honeycomb box:
|Cut your honeycomb and score at the designated slots. Glue the 3 panel cut directly behind the 3 panels on the honeycomb with open slots. Glue the bottom panel onto the inside of the middle panels. Ink if desired.|
|On another key, I found this hexagon. The shift to this same key creates a handle as well, but it's square. Ah ha! That is what the slit was for!|
|Attach the handle hexagon to the bottom of your honeycomb lid with the handle pulled through the slit.|
|OK, I can't get away from the ribbon. The newly added handle made a perfect loop for me to tie my seam binding around! I also added some Stampin' Up! Champagne glass glitter and a beaded hat pin from my stash.|
|I also cut two matching tags. One is a To/From tag and the other a honeybee. I added the glitter to the bees stinger and antennae.|
|For my second box, I tried to keep it as simple as I could (I know, I just have to add embellishments).|
|This box comes with the attached lid as well. I cut the base and scored the box.|
|There are several (about 100 images) hexagons to choose from to add to your top. Images include vegetables, gardening equipment, and even phrases. Lots to choose from to make it as unique as you would like.|
|I wanted to make this box really "pop", so I cut the black bee base twice so that I could bend the legs down and the wings up.|
|Again, there are over a 100 hexagon tops to choose from (including the phrases). There are three different borders too. I used the honeycomb, but there is a leave border (seen in the wheelbarrow box) and a beehive border as well.|
|The beehive tag is just too cute! I stamped a quick sentiment to add to the tag as well.|
|This box has a separate lid as seen opened up here.|
