This is the Big Shot Die Box #2 (might as well put it on your order now) made up normally EXCEPT she didn’t fold on the score line to make the lid. She put two of these boxes back to back and punched a wide oval handle making this darling tote box. Embellished with die Leaves #2 which were sponged and veins embossed with a stylus.
The sentiment stamped on the twill tape is from Teeny Tiny Wishes – don’t you just LOVE IT?
Believe me, I brought all of the pieces home from her house so I could have one of my very own. And I also cut an extra couple of Box #2 so I could create on my own tote. (yes, that die is on MY next order, too) Here is what I did:
You knew it would have punches on it, didn’t you?
Wide Oval – head
½ Circle – nose
Heart to Heart – whites of eyes
Standard hole punch – black in eyes
And the antlers? That is from the die Build a Flower with one of the petals cut off! Sometimes I just amaze myself. I never thought I’d turn a flower into antlers – I thought I’d use the new snowflake punch for reindeer antlers this holiday season but they just weren’t BIG enough this time around. I think candy will be the filler for this little tote - but not now, I'm watching the carbs and don't need the temptation.
