Hybrid Tutorial by RealRach

Hi, I'm Rach and I am going to show you how I created a cute little Carrot box for Easter.
I used Libby's Kit called Dye Job for this project. I found a freebie template for one at Mirkwood Designs and just modified it to fit my digital needs. I will walk you through the steps with pictures and some verbal directions.Print out your template box. I brought the original jpeg into PS and then duplicated my box and then deleted the paper around the template and then clipped paper to the original shape and saved it as a PNG file. Then printed it out on heavy weight paper.Next I cut it out and fold on the lines.Then use a super strong adhesive to seal the carrot box.Ink the edges if you want. This kinda hides the fold lines too!
Then with the original box opened so I could compair sizes, I brought in items to decorate my box. Print those out, cut out, ink, and apply to your box.

Here's one side of my finished carrot box.

Here's the other side of my finished carrot box.

I filled mine with Easter Grass and jellybeans. Who wouldn't love to get one of these as gift for Easter, Spring, or May Day?! You could make it with any theme!

Enjoy and have fun turning your digi supplies into something more!
