Hippo Belly Box Valentine

Hi friends! Today I am sharing a Valentine idea. I love the belly boxes and Lori has several on her site (SVG). I used the Belly Box Hippo (SVG). To make him more of valentine I used pink papers as accents and added some hearts to the feet. I then filled the belly part with some of my little guy's favorite candy. I love how he turned out. These little boxes are easy to assemble and don't have to many pieces. Defiantly something that can be mass produced if needed. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Valentine Truck Box Card Tutorial

Hi friends! Today I am sharing an assembly tutorial for the Boc Card Valentine Truck Back End (SVG, Silhouette). I used 80lbs cardstock and a few designer papers from the Little Ladybug collection by Echo Park Paper Co. This cut file does have a lot of small pieces but totally manageable with a fine tip glue bottle. 

First I assembled all of the decorative elements. The back of the cab of the truck has a border for the window and two rear view mirrors. The tail gate has three layers. A foundation, a decorative layer, and the XOXO layer. It also has two taillights with two layers, a bumper, and a license plate with two layers. All of the hearts are for the inside insert of the box card. For the card base I flipped the card over and folded all the scored lines as valley folds and glued the black tires into place.   

With the card base open I glued the back of the cab on to the inside of the card base. Then folded the score lines on the insert as valley folds and added glue to the tabs. I lined up the tab on the right next to the score line on the inside the card base. Then folded over the left side of the card base on top of the glue on the left tab of the insert making sure everything was level and flat while folded down. I added glue to the tab on the card base and folded the right side of the card base down on the glue making sure it was lined up with the score line.  

Now with the card folded flat I added glue to the back/tailgate portion of the truck and added the tailgate to the box card. 

Now it is ready to send to a valentine!

Thats all for me today. Thanks for stopping by!

Lori Whitlock Creative Team Blog Hop for January 2024

Hi friends and Happy New Year! Thanks for hoping along with us today! The hop order this month is Lori, Traci, Brandie, Ashley, Cathy, and Chelsea. We are so glad you are here. This moth I am sharing an altered version of the A2 Christmas Card Penguin (SVG, Silhouette). 

The original card has a Santa hat on the penguin, but I wanted it to look more like a winter beanie. So, I cut a half circle to create the beanie and trimmed the card base with scissors to match the new hat shape. I added a few stickers and now I have a Happy Birthday Penguin! I used papers and stickers from The Magic of Winter paper collection by Echo Park Paper. 

I think he is perfect for a winter birthday. Thats all for me today. The next stop on the hop is Ashley.
