Each Month's Craft Box has so much thought around what is included in it and the Sizzix March Craft Box is no exception! It is full of amazing items for you to use in your Spring crafting. The Sizzix Craft Boxes are created taking into consideration the time of year, what holidays are on the horizon, what colors are trending and more, basically so that we can accommodate all of the making opportunities we crafters create for.

The Dies we choose are always versatile and can be used whatever the occasion (that's right, Birthday's, Thank You's, Party, Easter and so much more) so you aren't just receiving something you can only use right now, but for every season.

The products we choose always compliment each other so we can take our projects to the next level whether its a card, party decoration or home decor piece, we've got you covered!

Here's my first (of many) projects I have made using the March Craft Box...

You will need:

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1.

Begin by taking one of the fresh white sheets of A4 cardstock from the craft box and fold it to create a card base.

Step 2.

Next, trim the card base and use it to mark on some of the pink cardstock which comes in the craft box using a pencil. Trim along the pencil lines and then use Sizzix Express Glue to adhere this to the front of your card base.

Tip: Ensure the liquid adhesive is evenly spread before adhering to the surface to prevent the glue blobs distorting the pink outer layer of card.

Step 3.

Cut a rectangle from Mint Julep cardstock. The rectangle should be sized roughly as pictured. My card base measures 6 x 4 inches and the rectangle measures at 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches.

Position the rectangle so that is is at a diagonal angle and overlapping the top of the card base. At the top of the mint julep card element, measure and draw a line following the top of the card base. Trim along this line.

Take the egg Framelits element from the 'Spring has Sprung' Die set and position it so that it is roughly in the centre of the mint julep rectangle. Die cut the Egg aperture from the mint julep card rectangle and put it back in position on the card base. See the image below.

Step 4.

Die cut the egg from the centre of the Mint Julep cardstock element and also from white cardstock. Rest the aperture on the card base where it will later be positioned, then use a pencil to mark around the edge of the aperture.

Step 5.

Using the pencil mark as a guide, use Express Glue to adhere the white Die cut egg element to the card base. This will show through the aperture when the Mint Julep element is in position.

Step 6.

Die cut the foliage and floral elements from the 'Spring has Sprung' die set, the leaves should be cut from Lush Leaves cardstock. Build up a floral scene making sure that they meet with bottom edge of the egg element. I used scissors to trim some of the leaf stems down.

Step 7.

Die cut and layer the chick element from the same Die set and adhere it in the centre of the white egg element using foam tape. Add some beads and sequins, making sure not to add too many and that they're all staying within the boundary of the white egg element. Top tip - If they overlap, this will make the next step difficult.

Step 8.

Peel off the protective later from your corresponding dimensional dome and place over your scene. Then add foam tape to the back of the Mint Julep card element and position over the dimensional dome.

Step 9.

Cut the 'Spring' sentiment out of the the mirror cardstock from the opulent set which comes in the box. Then use express glue to adhere to a sheet of Arctic Sky cardstock and use scissors to cut a off rectangle shape around the sentiment. To adhere this element use foam tape as shown in step 10, so that it overlaps the Mint Julep element.

Finally, add some more floral and foliage elements to the front of your card and add a few sequins and finish it off with the lovely little butterfly element.
