Brother ScanNCut Tutorial – Decorating Boxes of Sunshine – Mini Paper Pumpkin Box of Sunshine

In this Brother ScanNCut Tutorial, I share an alternative project you can create using the Box of Sunshine Pumpkin Kit – June 2020. You will learn how to decorate a Mini Paper Pumpkin Box. First, we use the built in patterns to cut the shapes needed to cover the box. You learn how to save and retrieve your template. Then, we stamp the sun from the Box of Sunshine kit in Memento Black ink. You learn the pencil trick for making sure that the sun is recognizable by the ScanNCut. It needs to be one complete image. We cut out the sun with an outline distance and a larger sun for the background with a larger outline distance. The settings and supplies for this project are listed below. I hope you will create a template that you can save and re-use over and over to decorate the new Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes by Stampin’ Up!
