We made a couple of adorable punch art boxes at my annual stamp party that I wanted to share with you today.
Each guest that attended the party got to choose the Jolly Santa or the Love Owl. Super cute right?
Click here to see a video on how to cut out & put the curvy keepsake box together. I cut my box bases out of 1 sheet of 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ CS. The 2nd piece is cut off a bit at the bottom to save paper, but still works just fine.
To make the Jolly Santa we punched the beard out in Whisper White cardstock with the 2 3/8″ scallop circle punch. I used the wings of the bird builder to punch out his mustache.
The face was punched out in Blushing Bride cardstock using the 1 1/2″ circle punch. The nose was punched out with the 1/2″ circle punch.
I used a sponge dauber and Blushing bride ink to add some rosy cheeks to my Santa face.
I folded the top edge of the scallop circle down and then adhered the face to the center with snail adhesive. I added the mustache with dimensional dots to give a bit of depth and then adhered the nose with snail adhesive. I added his cute eyes with the Project Life Journaling pens. I adhered his face to the box with dimensional dots.
To make the Love Owl we punched the eye base out in Whisper White cardstock with the 1 1/4″ scallop circle punch.
The next layer of the eyes were punched out in Crumb Cake cardstock using the 3/4″ circle punch.I adhered these to the eye base with snail adhesive.
The last layer of the eyes were punched in Basic Black cardstock out with the 1/2″ circle punch. I added the white highlight with the Chalk Marker and then adhered with dimensional dots.
I punched the body out of the Everyday Chic Designer Series paper with the 1 3/8″ circle punch and adhered it to the side of the box, aligning to the bottom edge.
I used the small heart punch from the Itty Bitty punch pack to punch his nose out of Crushed Curry cardstock.I adhered this to the box with mini gluedots.
I adhered his eyes to the box with dimensional dots. Tip: I found it easiest to place the eyes while the box was closed.
