Swirly Scribbles Popcorn Box for the 4th of July

June 30, 2016 No Comments

My daughter and I spent part of this morning helping to prepare for a congregational luncheon.  I played prep cook and dishwasher while she helped with set up in the social hall.  Afterwards, we grabbed a quick sandwich before heading over to Lafayette College.  She was contacted yesterday about an opportunity to participate in an art program this afternoon.  She was all over it!  I can’t wait to pick her up at dinner time and have her share with me what she has learned today.  During this quiet couple of hours, I thought I’d take a break from some of my administrative tasks and share this morning’s creation with you.

I’ve had cupcakes on the brain for a couple of days now.  Yesterday, I picked up a couple so that I could try out my idea.

This morning, I got to work early and was ready for pictures as soon as the sun shifted a little.

Swirly Scribbles Popcorn Box Cupcake Holder for the 4th of July - from theartfulinker.com

I created this patriotic cupcake holder and the “sprakler” pick.

I’ve used Real Red and Pacific Point cardstocks and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.

First, I cut two of the long scribbles, from Swirly Scribbles, in Pacific Point.

Then, using the Popcorn Box Framelits I cut two 3-/14″ x 5″ pieces of Real Read cardstock.  By placing the pieces where they cover the bottom of the die, it will cut everything you need to put the two halves together.

After adhering the sides of the box together using Tear and Tape, you’ll want to take your scissors and snip a little off of  two of the sides .  They’re just a bit too tall at one end otherwise.  Once this is done, adhere the bottom flaps with Tear and Tape.

Next, you’ll wrap the long Pacific Point scribble around two sides.  Crease it between sides one, two and three.  You’ll notice that on the third side the scribble goes too high — just like in the picture.  Trim the excess at the crease between sides two and three but don’t throw the piece(s) away.  Adhere sides one and two with Multipurpose Glue.  Once the adhesive has set.  Repeat with the other long scribble.  With this one, you’ll notice that one end matches up to the scribble that is already adhered.

Once this is done, you’re ready to cut eight Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper stars.  You’ll find the star die is part of the Popcorn Box Framelits.

Adhere the stars two to each side of the box.

Next, you’ll take the bits of the two Pacific Point scribbles that you removed.

Give them a gentle pull across your Bone Folder to soften and slightly curl them.

Using a toothpick and a glue gun, adhere the Pacific Point pieces to create the sparkler pick.
