Start by finding or drawing a template for a Wellie and cut it 2 times out of blue card stock and then once more out of paper from the Winking Frog Paper Collection just a bit smaller to show dimension. The size of my Wellie is 6″ high and 5″ wide which I turned into a box by creating a center piece.
To create this center piece, take a piece of matching cardstock 12″ x 4″ and scor at the 1/2″ mark on both long sides. Also scor on the 5″ and 7″ and fold on the scor lines. You will now have a U shaped piece of card stock that you can attach to the insides of the Wellie you cut from the blue card stock. You may find it easier to attach your designer paper and decorate the front of the box before assembling.
Now that you have your boot box complete, time for the fun part, decorating! Die cut from the pre-colored images that come with the Winking Frog Paper Collection, the mushrooms for the bottom of the boot and the Fiddling Frog. These images are fantastic if you want to create that quick card or project as you do not have to spend a lot of time coloring! The next steps are to finish with a water lily flower and your favorite sentiment. The water lily flower was stamped on white cardstock with Versamark, heat embossed with Water Can Embossing Powder and cut with the matching die. Shape flowers with Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and add Prills to centers to finish them off. Stamp the sentiment on your choice of the designer paper from the Winking Frog Collection with Versamark, heat embossed with Water Can Embossing Powder and cut with the Cut Mat Create 1B Die, attach where desired.
Thanks so much for visiting. Have a wonderful day my crafty friends!
