Sweetly Dispensed M&M container:

  • Cut and score the Sweetly Dispensed container according t to o directions. Assemble the bottom to the back of the body.
  • Trace the front flap onto the back of the Enchanted DSP (from the 2012 SAB). Using a ruler, measure 1/4" on the insides and top of the DSP (not the bottom). Cut down your card stock to these 1/4" marks. Use your Adorning Accents Emb. Folder on the base of the Enchanted DSP. Trim along the embossed area, removing the DSP extending past the edge.
  • Emboss the base of the red flap with the Adorning Accents Emb. Folder and trim off the bottom along the raised edge.
  • Attach the DSP to the top of the red flap. Score again along the guidelines on the top flap. Crease the folds well. Bend so they roll around, allowing the flap to hang over the dowel.
  • Emboss a piece of Vanilla card stock using the .... embossing folder. Trim around window.
  • Cut down a piece of Soft Suede cardstock to fit inside the window of the Vanilla. Roughen edges with Cutter Tool. Stamp the Doily image from Kindness Matters on two opposite sides of the Suede square. Attach to inside of Vanilla window.
  • Stamp text from the P.S. I Love you set onto Vanilla cardstock. Remove text with Window punch and layer to top of Modern Label red card stock punch. Attach brads to side and use glue dots or dimensionals to attach to front of Suede Square.
  • Create a Suede scallop circle and Vanilla Doily circle. Punch holes in center of each and attach to top sides of box.

The Sweetly Dispensed using the DSP from the SAB was just a preview of the template.

I'll post some how-to's in the original post.
