Foxes in Boxes

I have been having so much fun playing with the Foxy Friends Stamp Set and the Fox Builder Punch that's in the Stampin' Up! 2016/17 Annual Catalogue. If you purchase the Foxy Friends Photopolymer Bundle (stamp set & punch) you save 10%.

The fox is so cute but you can also make other cute animals including a raccoon, a cat, a tiger, a skunk and a beaver (I'm sure I have missed some of the animals).

There are also lots of stamps in this set that you can use to make a great woodland background.

My daughter Kayleigh bought home some cute little fox shaped strawberry lip glosses so that I could make boxes for them.  She knew I would love them because I had been playing with the 'Foxy Friends' for a couple of days.  She said "Mum, they are Melon Mambo and Calypso Coral" (my daughter and hubby are slowly learning the SU colours lol.)  

For the Calypso Coral coloured fox I made a basic top opening box with Calypso Coral cardstock and used the matching ink to stamp the fox for the belly band. 

For the Melon Mambo fox I used Melon Mambo cardstock to make the box.  I made my own DSP using Melon Mambo ink to stamp the mushroom image from the stamp set and I used the Tree Builder punch for the small flowers and added a pearl to the centre of them. 

For the Blue Fox I made my first exploding box. To make the DSP I started thinking about what you would find on the ground in the woods so I used the paw print and the leaves images from the stamp set.

I really enjoyed making these little boxes and I'm so pleased with the end result.  I hope you like them too.

UPDATE : I have had lots of questions about where to purchase the Fox shaped lip gloss' - they were bought from Card Factory and cost 99p each.

Have yourself some crafting fun.
