Sun & Surf!

Time for a little Sun and Surf over at Cut It Up and our sponsor is the Bugaboo this time!  You will want to click on over there and check out the great prize they are offering!  But first, I want to show you this little sand pail gift box I made from an adorable Bugaboo image!  

Let's head off to Design Space for tutorial.  

Insert a box/bag and the pail & shovel.  Next upload your image and insert that.  You can delete the shadows of the pail/shovel and then hide contour on two pails as shown on the right.   The third pail is for the image.  I left the top contour in, but I hid the rest.  Now it's time to place the shovel onto the bucket, place the image on top of that and size the pail to fit the image.  Hint:  stack the 3 pails together and group them.  Then size them to fit the image!  That will keep them all the same size!  Finally, ungroup the pails you want to cut; stack up the pail, shovel and image; flatten!  

Print and cut the imaged pail; cut the box and remaining 2 pails.  Color the image and put it all together!  Easy as that!

Ok, time to head off to Cut It Up and show us your Sun & Surf project.  Remember to include a die cut!  Did I mention there is a prize?  Yep, Bugaboo is sponsoring a great prize.
