Drink up all the coffee and then start the project with an empty Frappucino box.
Cut a 6" x 6" square from My Anchor paper, score 1/2" on all four sides. Cut away the four corners.
Adhere to bottom of box, folding up the 1/2" flaps as shown.
Create a template for the two sides of the box by tracing it onto scrap card stock.
Trace template twice onto My Anchor paper and cut out. Cut two additional pieces measuring 3 1/2" x 6". You will score these two in the next step.
Along the 6" length, score 1/2" from both ends. Do this to both pieces.
Adhere these first. One to the front and one to the back of the box.
Adhere the two remaining pieces to the sides. You can ink-distress the edges if you like.
Cut a piece of My Anchor paper 1" x 4 7/8" and fold lengthwise showing the light blue side. Adhere to top handle area of box.
Cut two pieces from My Anchor paper (light blue side) measuring 4 7/8" x 6". Trace the handle hole from the box and cut out. Cut a 3 3/4" slit from the bottom, centered, as shown.
Ink-distress edges if desired. Adhere to inner portion of box as shown. Add chipboard tag and ribbon to decorate handle.
Cut desired strips from "Splash" papers to create decorative borders for your box. Add a layer of burlap for texture.
Fussy cut elements from By The Sea signature page and adhere in clusters. Layer metal compass and brad with strong adhesive.
Fill it with napkins, condiments and plastic utensils and you're ready for a picnic on the beach! For more inspiration, visit my blog: AnnettesCreativeJourney.blogspot.com
