Frankie & His Brides


Happy Friday Everyone!
So, how do you like today's title?!?!? I made the Top Note Frankie box for my brother and the Brides of Frankie candy wrappers for my nieces.
The card stock for the box I created for the Top Note Frankie measured 4 3/4 x 9 1/2. With the 4 3/4 side along the top of my paper cutter, I scored at 1 inch on both sides. With the 9 1/2 side on top, I scored at 4 inches on both sides. Snip along the 4 inch scores up to the 1 inch scores and use red sticky tape to assemble. I attached the box to the Top Note dies just above the bottom perforation on the die cuts and then snipped the points off so Frankie would stand straight. The arrows were cut from silver card stock using a Cuttlebug die.
The card stock for the Brides of Frankie candy wrappers was cut at 4 1/4 x 6. With the 6 inch side along the top, I scored at 1 1/2 and 1 3/4 on one side, and 1 3/4 and 2 on the other side. This wrapper is for the small Milka chocolate bars. One bride has purple hair and the other blue hair (I made matching exploding boxes which will be posted at a later date--I still have to add the pictures). How about those eyelashes?!?!? Wish mine looked like that! Hope you can see the tulle veils in the picture. They wouldn't be brides without their veils!
Thanks for visiting today.
