With great papers for fussy cutting, dies and embellishments in this collection I decided to make a beach hut pop up box, heres how.

Cut white card 11.5x27cm.  Score and burnish at 8, 13, 21 & 26cm.  Cut the 2 narrow sections down 3cm from the top, then across. See diagram  On the 2 wider sections cut from the 4cm middle at the top to the 3cm point on the narrow sections. Stick strips of washi tape across all sides.  Mat the inside back with stripy paper.  Stick the side tab to the back of the hut.

Cut 2 strips of white card 2x 11cm and score at 1.5 & 9.5 for the inside bars.  Cover the centre section with stripy paper.  Inside stick the tabs to the sides with the patterned side to the front. It is helpful to fold the hut before the glue dries so that it will fold flat for posting.   Cut strips of acetate and attach to die cut castle, hut sticker, fussy cut ice creams, buckets, shell from papers and characters from toppers.  Arrange inside attaching to the back and inside bars.  Add sentiment in the same way.

Cut a scalloped strip to make roof.  Add gems and attach to card front.  Cut a rectangle of pink paper 4x7cm for the door, add to hut.  Decorate front with puffy stickers and gem.  Use ribbon, fussy cuts and glitter stickers for embellishments.  The seagull is from the decoupage pad.
