A Muse Studio cardstock has color on one side and is white or cream on the other. It's AWESOME for card making. And, it works great for die cutting projects as well. There is a trick though to getting a nice look from single-sided cardstock because sometimes it cracks. So, how do you keep it from cracking? First, you fold the cardstock color to color on the score lines (see above).
Now it's time to add your adhesive and get ready to assemble your triangle box. You can either use red-line tape (my classes call it scary tape and devil tape - lol) or
you can use Tombow Mono Multi. I love this glue and as you can see - I make a mess of the bottle. Good stuff! :) I actually use the red-line tape on the point of the box and then use mono multi on the sides as I like to have a little more flexibility on getting the side flaps in the right spot. The glue gives that extra time and ability to adjust the cardstock. Scary tape is awesome but when you put it on, you'd better have your cardstock in just the right spot as when it's down - it's down!
The first and very important step on assembly is to make sure the point is lined up. If the point of the triangle is off - the whole box will be off. That sounds hard (and the way I did it the first time was hard - because that's how I roll and it's why I changed majors from engineering to education but that's a story for another day...lol).
Put the color sides of the two die cuts face down on the table and line up the flaps on the point. You're going to be gluing color to color. The photo below is a little blurry but hopefully you can see what I mean.
After you put the points together, the box naturally folds closed.
Here's what it looks like from the top side view.
After adhering the side flaps (glue or adhesive on the color side of the cardstock) to the side panels, you're ready to fill it and decorate it.
I stamped and die cut a bunch of Flaky Friends snowmen to decorate the fun pile of pie boxes. I'm not going to make them pie pieces (though they could be). They're going to be mini tree treat boxes!
Aren't they cute?
Here's the sample Chistmas tree box beside the pumpkin pie. I want to make one into a giant candy corn but haven't done that yet. I bet there are other awesome ideas besides those.
You can pick up the pie box die ($29.99 plus tax and shipping) in my webstore: www.amusestudio/com/seleise (click on shop online in the top menu and then click on stamps and then go to the October collection in the side bar and you can see all the goodies)
I want to spend a brief moment talking about Totally Tiffany storage items. I don't have any affiliation to the company -just like the products. My sister gave me these two storage boxes last Christmas. I have re-inkers and splash and glitter and embossing powder in the one on the right. The one on the left holds my embossing buddy, red line tape, personalized stamps, washi, ribbon and other bits and pieces.
I use several of the bags (not pictured) to hold copics and glitters and splashes and more. They're awesome to take to crops.
My newest purchase that I'm totally in love with is the Die-Namic Die Storage. It's a plastic case that holds five sleeves of louvered die storage.
7Have a wonderfully creative day!
