Penguin box

Here's a cute little penguin box I made for a few challenges.  First, I made a box using "fit to page" on my Expression.  I cut it from the Life's a Party cartridge in purple cardstock, then put some polka dotted Doodlebug Designs paper around the outside of the box.

Next, I cut the three trees from Winter Woodland at 1.75 inches.  I adhered them onto the three front panels on the box.  Next, I cut the three penguins from Zooballoo. Because of the way they are situated in the image, I had to cut at 3 inches to get them to be about 1 inch tall each.  I put their eyes and beaks on with gel pen and then put each of them with a tree.  I had a leftover snowflake in my "extra die cuts" bin from the tag I made last week, so I put that on the top as a little extra decoration.

This project will be entered into the following challenges:

  5. Darling! I miss being able to do boxes. My cricut has the 6x12 sheet so I can't fit the cuts. You did a great job.
