Tropical Party Tote

This little tote turned out better than I expected - cute! I CASed this box from Split Coast stamper "bgalec" posted 5/16/2010 and made some slight changes. These were made for a 3-D swap (Wacky Stampers!!!) Are you one of the lucky recipients? If not, you can certainly easily make one of these. They will be sent in the mail today except they will have linen thread to close the top instead of the clip - the clip is too bulky to put in an envelope (so sorry!). Finished project size is 3-3/4" x 1-1/4" x 3-3/4"

Side View of Tote:

Back of tote:

Final touch: add clip with a tied linen bow:

Use the Sizzix Big Shot Box #2 die. Cut an additional lid only, be sure to include a min of 3/8" allowance along the lid to enable attaching to the box top.

Stamp as shown randomly on Box and additional lid. Add sticky tape to box extension and second lid.

Stamp and cut out large flowers, small flowers, and coconut drink. Pop all with dimensionals:

Use Stampin' Write pens to color the straw and umbrella:

Using the Stampin' Write Close to Cocoa pen, ink the words "enjoy" and stamp on to the Whisper White. Then punch out using the word window punch. Back with Rose Red CS Modern Label Punch. Add dimensionals. Draw white dots on each end of the Modern Label. Attach to tote.
