Sizzix Tutorial | Ice Cream Candy Topper Holders by Melissa Fallon

Hello everyone! Melissa here today sharing my Sizzix Tutorial as a Sizzix Designer! Considering the introductions have already taken place, I think it's finally time in our relationship to reveal a few more of my biggest obsessions.

For those who read my blog, it's no surprise that I am a tad bit obsessed with fruit-inspired projects, candy, and sprinkles. So today I'm sharing a simple tutorial on how to turn the Sizzix Bigz Die Berry Basket from the Lori Whitlock collection into fun ice cream party candy holders! A few of my greatest loves mixed into one. So let's get started!

How to Make Strawberry Fruit Baskets 1

To make the boxes, I made a sandwich by layering a cutting pad, the box die face up, my mint green paper, and then the other cutting pad on the top. This will produce one of the sides of the boxes, so I then repeated that step three more times so I had all four sides to the box. Next, I repeated the same sandwich with hot pink paper two times to get the scalloped borders.

Once all four sides and the bottom pieces were cut out, I folded the bottoms and side tabs so they were ready to be assembled. The die creates crease lines so that these pieces are easy to fold - hooray to not having crease these myself!

Next is where things start to come together! I arranged each piece in the sequence above and adhered the bottom tab of each one to the center square.

Once all four tabs were attached, I flipped everything over and folded each side up to form the box.

I then adhered each tab the side panel on its left and allowed to dry thoroughly.

Once the box dried, I attached each pink scallop border to the top of each side. And just like that, the box is done!

Because the sides of the boxes have gaps that candy can sneak out of, I placed a plastic bag inside the box and then filled it with the candy.

Once filled, I trimmed off the excess bag so the candy has a nice, clean presentation!

To create the strawberry & watermelon spoon toppers, I used the Summer Fruit Set Sizzlits Dies. After using the watermelon die twice (once with pink paper & once with the mint green), I trimmed off the outside portion of the pink watermelon so that it could be layered on top of the green one. After attaching the strawberry stem to the strawberry and the seeds to the watermelon, the fruit dies were ready to be taped to the tops of the spoons!

School may be back in session & the warmer days slowly creeping away but if you're anything like me then ice cream is a year-round treat! Besides, if it was only for summer, the stores wouldn't sell it in the winter, right? Riigghttttt.

Now if only I can figure out how to get cheap, fresh strawberries all year round, then I will be one happy camper during treacherous Midwest winter.

With love & sprinkles,
