Bobunny’s toybox collection is so much fun! The bright colours and paper designs lend themselves to so many childhood themed projects!
We’ve had this collection in our stash for a while, just waiting for inspiration to hit! When I saw a photo of a small gift box, I knew that was it.
I created this box by cutting the template out on my Cricut (Cartridge: Box it up). I measured each side and cut out 4 squares 1/4 inch smaller than the side of the box, from 4 different papers in the collection.
I edged the squares with chalk for effect, and adhered them to the sides and top of the box.
For the topper, I threaded some baker’s twine through a button and tied it at the top. I adhered it to the lid of the box with liquid glue.
For the box front, I taped a piece of clear acetate to the inside of the box, covering the circle. I fussy cut some embellishments to decorate.
Finally, I filled it with gummy worms (I may have snuck one…or two!)
This treat box is on it’s way to a special kid this week!
I wasn’t done with this collection yet!
I needed to create a layout using these colours! One of the patterned cardstock sheets has an arrow pattern on it:
I’ve been wanting to try a lattice style layout for a while, and this paper was perfect for it!
Here’s the layout:
I cut the strips along the lines, and trimmed the top and bottom to define the arrow. I used varying lengths to add some interest. The leftover trim from the arrows were used at the side of the photo.
I weaved the strips in and out of each other and tried to keep them straight while I glued them down (easier said than done!).
I thought twine would give some great movement to the layout, especially since it’s such a fun photo! The title was letters I had in my stash, and of course no baby layout is complete without some buttons!
There we have it, another layout down and ready for the album!
