Step by Step Tutorial for Valentine Mouse Box
Punch the following pieces using Stampin' Up! punches:
2 Creamy Caramel 1 3/4" Circles - BODY
4 Creamy Caramel Modern Labels - ARMS & LEGS
1 Creamy Caramel Ornament - HEAD
2 Creamy Caramel 1 3/8" Circles - EARS
2 Creamy Caramel Medium Ovals - FEET
2 Creamy Caramel 3/4" Circles - PAWS
2 Blushing Bride 1" Circles - EARS
1 Creamy Caramel 2 Step Bird branch - TAIL
1) Trim the top off ornament and round out pointed bottom. Clip about one quarter off the bottom of each medium oval piece to form feet. Trim the leaves off the branch to form the tail. Sponge the edges of all caramel pieces with close to cocoa ink. Sponge the edges of the blushing bride circles with blushing bride ink.
2) Glue pink circles onto inside of 1 3/8" circles for ears. Glue 1 3/4" Circles together for body. Stamp face onto ornament using the Peachy Keen 1 1/8" Wide Eyed & Bushy Tailed stamp set (PK-758). Color in whites of eyes, highlights and teeth with a unibal white gel pen. Add color to the eyelids with blender pen and cocoa ink. Apply regal rose ink to cheeks with stipple brush (or lightly with sponge/dauber).
3) Glue ears onto back of head. Attach head to body with dimensional. Glue legs onto body. Attach feet to legs with dimensionals. Glue tail onto body. Glue arms onto body and attach paws with dimensionals (be sure to have "right" side of arms flat down on table (this is because arms will fold forward onto box. Assembled mouse looks like this:
Triangle Treat Box Assembly:
Cut a piece of acetate (window sheet/transparency) 5 3/4" x 5 3/4".
Along one side, score at 1 3/4", 3 1/2" & 5 1/4"
Along other side, score at 1 1/4" & 4 1/2"
Cut away the top and bottom sections as shown in this diagram:
Apply sticky strip or other strong clear adhesive to the 1/2" tab on the right side of the box as shown above. Sharpen the score marks. Adhere the 1/2" tab onto the other end of the box to form a triangular shaped tube. Fold the triangles at the top and bottom of the box inwards to close the end. Tape the bottom closed. Leave the top untaped so you can add treats. This box was created for the Reeses valentine peanut butter hearts. I think that the Hershey's Bliss heart candies may also fit. You can stack 6 hearts perfectly inside the box.
Attach mouse to back of box. Use dimensionals to attach paws to sides of box. Stamp and attach tag to box.
