Lid Directions – I cut the apple with books (Hello Kitty Greetings) at 3.5 inches using red, green, blue and gold paper. I cut the shadow out in black. Next, I cut the oblong burst (Elegant Edges) at 4.5 inches out of the same red as the apple. I used 2-way glue to adhere the apple with books layers and then I used paper Mod Podge to adhere all pieces to the lid. I found ruler ribbon that I adhered to the outside of the lid.
Box Directions - I cut the oblong burst (Elegant Edges) four times at 4.5 inches out of the same blue as the science book. I cut eight paper clips (Locker Talk) out of silver holographic paper at 1 inch. I had some black glitter adhesive paper from DCWV that I used for the letters. I cut the word Paper Clips (Pooh Font Set) out twice at 1 inch. The blue oblong burst was trimmed to fit each side of the box. I used paper Mod Podge to adhere all pieces.
To finish the box, I put an extra coat of the paper Mod Podge over everything. I used a Sharpie black paint marker to write Math, Science, and Reading on the books and I also put stitching on the edges. I glued a piece of magnet paper to the bottom of the box to help the paper clips stay inside.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project and have enjoyed reading this blog everyday as much as I have.
