Spellbinders March die of the month kits

This months Spellbinder kits are soooo stinking cute! I knew as soon as I saw the reveal video I would love playing with them and the cards came out better than I had expected.

The first card I made used only the small die kit. I think these bunnies are adorable, even though I forget to add the bow ties they still steal the show.

I love scene building cards and this one is one of my favorite. I can picture him popping into my garden and stealing carrots so thats what I put on this card.

Dont let the outside fool you into thinking this is a plain and simple card. The WOW factor happens as soon as you open it.

A pop up window box full of beautiful flowers and mischievous bunnies!

I have a process video at the end of this post if you would like to recreate any of these super cute cards. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

Spellbinders Small Die of the Month Box Card

I made this super sweet little box card using the Feb 2019 small die of the month from Spellbinders.

Start with a 9 1/2 x 5 1/2" base and score and cut as indicated in the photo below.
remove the 1/2" section from the top edge and cut down to the 2 1/2" score line from the top.
(shorter end)

This gives you the correct size box card for the small die to wrap around the base of the card.

Next start paper piecing the parts that you would like to stand out from the rest of the die.

Ink blend a little blue for your sky

Add some grass and clouds. If you dont have any dies for this you can always ink blend in the clouds and cut a hill boarder as a background for your scene from some green paper. Trim off all but the back panel so you dont cover up your pretty butterfly garden.

Arrange your scene popping up the butterfly garden

My photos dont due this justice.. Its really very pretty in person!

Now place strong adhesive on the tab and close up the ends of your box. Add in your strips to the inside of the box and attach your garden pieces and the sSpring Greetings to the back panel.

I added a little white fence inside my box to help set the garden scene.
The flower spray closest to the back panel is an epoxy sticker I used from my stash. Add little finishing touches like dimensional ladybugs. Shop your never know what you will find!

The Back Panel is just as sweet as the front!
