VC Rocks June Blog Hop

Welcome to the June VC Rocks Blog Hop, called

Rock your Creativity

This one features the Big Shot, and Punches. 

For my first project I used one of the Pinwheels that

came in June's Paper Pumpkin and put it

on top of a hamburger box. I made the box using

the new Hamburger Die from SU.

Inside view of the hamburger box. I was looking for Little Debbie

snack cakes that they make for the 4th of July called Stars and Stripes, but

I couldn't find them in any of the local places I searched.

Keeping with that Patriotic theme I made this birthday card. 

It uses Beautiful Bunch stamp set and matching punch. 

Colors: Real Red and Night of Navy. The background under

the flowers is a stamp from Summer Silhouettes with Sahara Sand ink. 

Greeting from Perfect Pennants. 

My last project is this cute little red wagon. Isn't it just darling? 

I used the Top Note die with Real Red cardstock. 

The greeting is from Pictogram Punches. 

This was inked with VersaMark and embossed with white powder on the front

of the wagon. 

Side view. You want to make your own wagon? Here are some directions and measurements. 

To make the box for the inside wagon. Cut

the cardstock 6 1/4 x 3.

Score the long side at 1 inch and score again at 5 1/4 inch. 

Turn the cardstock and along the short edge score at 1 inch and 2 inch.

Using the picture above as a guide make a notch at the score lines along the 

long cardstock sides. The notch will let the box fold up better. 

Apply sticky strip to the flaps and fold up to form the box. 

The wheels are made with 1 3/8, 1 inch, and 1/2 circle punches. 

For the handle I first punched a circle from black cardstock using 1 1/4 circle punch

I then took the 1 3/8 circle punch and slid it over the punched out negative space and punched again. 

Hope this helps you to make a wagon, and I hope you have enjoyed

the Blog Hop. To see the rest of the June Hop great projects please visit
