Summer Watermelons

Ever since I got my Cameo, I've been really inspired to make more 3d kinds of projects.  I know that I could have done it with my Cricut too, but I didn't really have many cartridges that had those kind of projects.  But with my Cameo, there are cuts for 3d projects everywhere!  Today I have a summery themed fry box filled with candy to share with you.

I started out with a fry box from SVG Cutting Files.  The fry box file I had from them was a freebie from a blog hop awhile ago, and it had the word "hello" welded to the top of the box.  I just cut it out with my Cameo and then cut the word off with my scissors.   I made it orange because I realized that all of my two sided paper is 6x6 pads or else is for specific scrapbooking projects that I'm working on and so I had to use regular cardstock.  I thought the orange was a nice contrast, though.

Both of the watermelon cuties are also past freebies from SVG cutting files.  As soon as I decided I was going to buy a Cameo, I went straight over and joined the mailing list there so I could start accumulating some files.  She sends out Friday Freebies almost every week!  I also have quite a wish list growing there, because everything is so cute and cute is most definitely my style!

The little flag is a sticker from the Simple Stories Snap label stickers.  I just used some baby powder on the part of the back that wasn't stuck to the fry box and it made it become un-sticky.  I knew I was going to need some teeny tiny sentiments for the flag, so I pulled out a Stampendous set that I have that has all of the seasons.

I filled my fry box with some candy I found at my grocery store called Sour Punch Bits.  (and also a bit of tissue paper, because there was less candy when I opened the box than what I had been expecting.  I'm sneaky like that).

This project is being entered into the following challenges:
