Tote box from the group meeting

I just love this little two-sided tote, made with boxes from the Box #2 die for the Big Shot. It's so easy, and so adorable! You can fill it with candy, of course, or tea bags, gum, mints, Post-It Notes, mini pencils–or it's also the perfect size for business cards!

We made this one at my group meeting last Monday night. It uses Regal Rose 12×12 for the boxes (one sheet per person), Basic Black for the trim (Tasteful Trims die with the new self-adhesive sheets), and Melon Mambo for the scrunch punch flower (tutorial here). 

The tote is so easy–just assemble the two boxes but leave the lids untouched. Adhere the boxes back to back with Sticky Strip (preferred) or a strong liquid adhesive like Tombow Multi or Crystal Effects. Adhere the lids together, too. Then punch through all the layers with the Oval Punch to make the handle. The trim was SOOOOO EASY to apply, since I stuck the Basic Black cardstock down on the adhesive sheets before I ran them through the Big Shot. Then I just peeled off the backing and stuck the trim where I wanted it. LOVE that I will never run out of trim in any color ever again!

We decorated our tote with the new Glimmer Brads from the Holiday Mini Catalog, available to view by clicking on the catalog on my right hand sidebar. The tag was made with Oval punches and attached with the new skinny Basic Black narrow taffeta ribbon. The stamp came from Chic Boutique, but you could use any small word stamp for the tag.

And of course, Shimmer Spray was used liberally 🙂 If you STILL haven't jumped on that bandwagon, click here to go to my shopping site and order some, and then click here for the recipe to mix up a bottle. You will really regret it if you don't try this stuff–you are going to FLIP! Do it now so you have it for Christmas!
