Watermelon Punch

School is out, summer is here and there's nothing else that screams "summertime" to me quite like a fresh piece of watermelon!

Watermelon reminds me of picnics, BBQ, fireworks, ball games in the park, kids in bathing suits....ahhhhh summertime...

Here's a little something you can whip up for your summer parties and festivities....a little watermelon treat box with a surprise inside! 

These would be cute at table settings, as birthday treats (really you can't go wrong with watermelon!)

This uses a few products from Stampin' Up! and assembles very quickly.  You'll need:
  • Top Note die for the BigShot
  • Scallop circle punch for the watermelon seeds (cut off each scallop)
  • Punch an oval out of the top to make 'handles' for your treat box
  • cardstock of your watermelon choice! (we have so many delicious cardstock colours to choose from)

For the middle you have options!  You can:
  • Use a small cut off gift bag
  • Use a mini lunch or food bag
  • make a gift bag from an envelope
  • use the box number 2 die for the BigShot
  • or make your own small box....
 I like options.  Options are always good. 

Now, for you papercrafty teachers out there...wouldn't this be a GREAT hostess gift with a little stamp and an inkspot?  Indeed!
