Hamburger Box Graduation Cap

There is a NEW Stampin'Up die cut coming out with the
 NEW CATALOG June 2nd.
It's called the Hamburger Box Bigz XL.
(XL meaning extra long die)
The box finishes out at 4"x3 1/4" x 1 1/4".

When the die first became visible to demonstrators, I knew it would be fun to make a little graduate hat by just adding 2 layers of black card stock and a simple button tassel.

I was glad to see that I could use a 8 1/2" x 11" piece of card stock instead of a 12x12 with the extra long die. There are 2 additional die pieces that are included with the die that are tags. One has a pop out heart ...so cute!

It was easy to put the cut and scored box together with the help of my bone folder and STICKY STRIP. As with all 3-D die cut shapes, it takes a few minutes to get the knack of how it folds the first time you try it. Cut 2 Black pieces 5"x5" for the board piece on top. 

I created the tassel with Gold Metallic Baker's Twine and a Antique Brad. The tassel was attached to the board with the button brad before I sticky stripped it to the Hamburger Box.

The sentiment was stamped in black on white card stock and punched with the  Large Oval. The sentiment is from a retired stamp set called..................... ALL YEAR Cheer III.......it was the perfect size. 

Your Grad will be sure to SMILE when they open the BOX.
What's inside?  MONEY..rolled up like little diplomas and tied with a little piece of red ribbon....soooooo fun. Yes, the actual Green stuff!

So I hope you'll have a chance to try this out yourself. Remember the Hamburger Box XL Die is available starting June 2, 2014. Feel free to copy my project and post with a link that comes back here at Stamp and Stretch. If there are any questions I can answer you can comment below or text me.

FYI...You will need a Big Shot Machine and XL Cutting Plates for this die....the little green machine that so many of us started with will not accommodate the width of the XL cutting plates.
