SeaLife Box

By:

The SeaLife Box was created by Maria Nerius during our Hexagon Box Challenge on FaveCrafts 365 (our daily v-log report to you!). Jumasto suggested an aquarium or something with sea grasses or coral. These paper craft boxes are like a walk along the beach.

Materials:

  • Sizzix Bigz Pro Die Hexagon Box
  • Die cutting machine
  • Blue paper
  • 28” Green yarns
  • Small Sand dollar, starfish, shells
  • Metal Starfish charm
  • Wire cutters
  • Sand
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Instructions:

  1. Die cut the hexagon box, fold on scores, fold into box, adhere all connecting flaps (not that this box has 3 flaps that are inserted into the box at top to close, do not glue these flaps. Allow to dry.
     
  2. Squiggles a line of glue to the top of the box. Cover glue with sand. Allow to dry.
     
  3. Read the entire Step 2 before preparing your yarns. The green yarns are to recreate seaweed often seen along the shore. This project used several shades of green. Gather your lengths of yarn. Tie a knot at one raw end. From this knot you will be making four more knots. You want to make a loop and knot, make a loop and knot, make a loop and knot, and then finish with one more loop and knot. You’ll trim the excess yarn from the last knot leaving just the loop. You also want to gradually make each loop smaller than the last.
     
  4. Adhere the raw end of seaweed (the end you did NOT trim) to the top/center of box. You want it bonded to the box side panel that is lined up with the lid opening. Adhere seaweed using the knots and wave it across the front of the box. You’ll be adhering to 3-4 panels of the hexagon box sides.
     
  5. Adhere starfish charm to bottom or end of the seaweed. I removed the shank of the charm with my wire cutters. Then fill in the seaweed with your sand dollar, small starfish, and shells.
