As I promised in my previous articles, Popcorn Mini Treat Box and Lined Mini Popcorn Box, here is a Mini Popcorn Box adorned with images from the Ready to Pop Stamp Set.  I decided to use the Thick Whisper White Card Stock for the box and the embellishments… just for fun!  (Also since the box folds for storage, the Thick Whisper White will let it last longer-it’s more sturdy!!)

I decided to use regular Whisper White Card Stock for the stripes as the striped stamp image is a bit large for the box.  You could do an all-over pattern with the stamp, instead of die-cuts.  I stamped ten images with the Real Red Classic Stampin’ Pad, then die-cut the tapered stripes and adhered them to the box.  The stamp image just fits on Clear Block H.

The popcorn images fit well in the opposite corners of Clear Block B, so you can stamp two at once.  Be sure to leave room for the die-cutting when you stamp a second set.  I stamped twelve so there would be three popcorns on each side of the box.  Note:  Even if you use the Big Shot Magnetic Platform, you should secure the dies over the images with Post-It™ Notes or other removable tape.  To get the best results, use good light to position and secure the dies, then take the card stock or paper to the Big Shot for cutting.

I put popcorn into a 6” x 8” Cellophane Bag and tied it closed.  You get about a quarter cup (or less) of popped corn in the bag – just a taste.  The 2” x 8” Cellophane Bag may work better.  You could also make a plain bag from Glassine Sheets using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits DiesOr you could just make single-use boxes from Card Stock, Designer Series Paper or Butcher Paper and then throw them out after you have your popcorn.  The box might hold a half-cup of popcorn without the bags.  Lining with a bag is just for keeping the boxes clean enough to fold up and put away, then reuse.
