Roughin It - Just a little

Hi everyone Carole here- today I am going to share with you my "Roughin It" 3D Box, I used a cute photo of my son Chaise.

This is what my "Great Outdoors" project looks like when it is finished, I hope you have fun with these step by step instructions. Materials Used:
Roughin It Pattern Paper
Roughin It Happy Camper Pattern Paper
Roughin It Road Signs Pattern Paper
Roughin It Way to Go Die Cut
Roughin It 12x12 Chipboard
Catching Memories Cardstock Stickers
Mellow Yellow Double Dot Cardstock
Foam Tape
Sepia Ink
6.5 x 6.5 Inch Box

Step 1

Cover your box inside and out with the Reverse side of Roughin It Happy Camper pattern paper. Cut out the Roughin It Way to Go Die Cut so it fits to the back of the box as shown in the below photo, and ink around the sides of the box.

Step 2

Cut out the 2 Trees from the Roughin It pattern paper ink around the side of the trees with a sponge and stick to the trees to the back left hand side of the box as shown in the below photo.
Step 3
Cut Photo out so the image blends into the scene you are creating, as you can see here, I cut the top of the photo, then I stuck the photo to chipboard and using foam tape I then stuck the photo to the back of the box.
Step 4
I then created the sun by using a circle punch and I chalked around the edge of the circle with some yellow to highlight the circle.
I also created some rays to the sun, I glued the rays down first and using foam tape stuck the sun over the rays, as shown in the below photo.
Step 5
I created a hill to the front of the box, I used Reverse Roughin It Road Signs, cut out a wave shape and stuck it to chipboard with glue cut it out, then glued it to the front of the box.
As you can see in this photo how the hill was stuck to the front of the box, and then I start to add the embellishments with the 12x12 chipboard and also the stickers, let your imagination go wild, these chipboard shapes and stickers are so much fun to use and so easy.
A close up of the chipboard sign that I stuck to the front of the box, aren't they just so cute. Here are some more close ups of the chipboard tree and fishing rod etc., these were all stuck onto the box with foam tape to get the different layers.
All these embellishments are just gorgeous, here are some stickers that I cut out and stuck onto cardstock and then foam taped to the front of the box, lots of different layers to the front.
I also attached some chipboard to the top of the box with string.
Again here is the finished projects.
I really hope you enjoyed this step by step project, and I would love to see some of your 3D boxes.
Bo Bunny fun !!
