CHRISTMAS MAGIC MUG BOX CARD | with Kathy

I was very excited to see that the new Christmas Magic Cut Files were available in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop!  Of course I had to play right away... I designed this box card using one of the files... take a peek...


I just love that little gingerbread man!  Now for the fun part!  This card is available exclusively in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop here!  Following is the tutorial to assemble the card.
1)  These are the pieces that come with the file.
2)  First assemble the goodies... glue the stripes on the candy canes, the tops on the pink candies and piece the gingerbread man together.
3)  Add the candies to the center insert.  The outlines are there to guide placement.
4)  A little note on adding tiny pieces... and pieces that need particular placement.  When I cut the stripes for the candy cane, I left them in "order."  I then used the negative to help with the stripe placement.  Another helpful hint... I use a "pick-me-up" tool to help place small pieces.  It has a slightly sticky end that holds on the piece so you can more easily place it.
5)  Add the strips to the tops of both mugs to make the "lip" of the mug.
6)  Fold the 2 side pieces along the score lines.
7)  Attach the sides to one of the mug pieces.  They should be flush with the top of the mug.
8)  Glue the other side of the mug to the other tabs on the sides.

9)  Fold the tabs on the center insert so they go backward.  Add some adhesive to just the tabs.
10)  Slide the insert piece into the mug.  The bottom of the insert should be level with the bottom of the mug front and back,  and the tabs should just touch the back of the back mug.  Press the tabs to the side pieces to keep in place.
11)  The complete mug!

I embellished my mug a bit more using some shaped sprinkles and a sentiment from the Christmas Magic Chit Chat pieces.  The mug folds flat for mailing too!  If you make one, be sure to tag Doodlebug Design on Facebook and Instagram!  We would love to see what you make!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
