Xyron and Paper House Blog Hop With Tutorial


Hi Everyone.  Today we are kicking off the PaperHouse and Xyron Design Team Blog Hops.  I've created a tutorial that is simple and fun but will have you making this adorable box in no time.  Ready to see how to upcycle a Laughing Cow Cheese Box...Wow lets start.     

Step One

Trace the top of the lid onto your paper (twice).  I'm using the Endless Summer Paper from Paper House.  Cut out your circles. 

Step Two


Using the 5" Creative Station run your traced circles through and adhere one to the top of your box and put the other one aside.

Step 3

 

Sand the box edges and ink for a finished look.
 
Step Four
 
Cut 1/2 inch strips (3) and ink the edges.  Run through the 1" Teresa Collins Xyron Sticker Maker and attach to the sides of the box.  You'll do this on the top of the box and also the bottom of the box and will use the third strip to finish off both as 12" won't take it all the way around the box. 
 
 
Step Five : Cut two strips of 3/4 inch strip, ink and run through the 3" disposable Xyron Create a Sticker 
 

 

 Adhere to Around the inside of the box. Add interior circle we had set aside from step one/ two  to the inside bottom of the box .  Add embellishments to finish off project.




Here is a complete list of Paper House and Xyron projects used to create this piece.  Be sure to check out the rest of the design teams projects for more great tutorials, tips and inspiration all week long.

Wonderful project, great colors and love the reuse of the carton. I've been using my Xyron 1.5" sticker maker all day, it has made my current project a lot easier.
