How to Make Owl & Fox Treat Boxes/ Shelf-Sitters


Hello there! Today, I have for you a tutorial on how to make these adorable owl and fox treat boxes or shelf-sitters using the Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 6PK - Box, Owl and Fox by Jen Long. So, let's get started!

The Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 6PK - Box, Owl and Fox comes with a die to make the boxes and two sets of dies - owl and fox to decorate the boxes.  

To make each box, you will need two of the box pieces. To die-cut the box, create the following Sizzix Sandwich: on a Sizzix Accessory Standard Magnetic Platform For Wafer-Thin Dies, lay another Sizzix Accessory Cutting Pads - Standard. Place a cardstock on the Sizzix Accessory Cutting Pads - Standard and the box die, blade-side down on the cardstock and cover with the other Sizzix Accessory Cutting Pads - Standard. Pass the whole sandwich through the Sizzix Big Shot machine. Repeat to make more boxes.

Fold along the crease lines to form the box shape. Attach two box pieces together by applying adhesive to one of the tabs. Apply adhesive to the other tab to close the box.

Here are two of my assembled boxes.

Diecut the owl decorations using the same Sizzix Sandwich as above. Be sure to cut two of the wings and eyes. I used cardstock for these pieces as I plan to paint them. You could also use coordinating colors of cardstock.

Repeat with the fox decorations, again die-cut two of the face and eye pieces.

Attach the faces, eyes, wings and tail to the boxes.

Now, paint the pieces to complete the boxes. You could fill them with treats or just sit them on your shelves.

Hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and try these cuties for yourself!
