Well I am seeing some awesome ideas and will be sharing the pictures with you soon. But here’s a photo of a few of us walking across stage.
So, this Sizzix XL Die ‘Box #2′ has to be the absolutely *easiest* stinkin’ box to make!
This quick box is just Taken With Teal cardstock (6 x 11 inches) and a strip of the Designer Series paper ‘Holiday Lounge’ (#115676). In fact it is one 1 1/2 inch strip of trees that I added some *bling* to. The 5/8 inch white satin ribbon (#114616) is extremely elegant as a finishing touch that is secured onto the box top, so it opens without having to untie it. SECRET: there is a strip of ribbon across the top secured underneath and the box is actually glued to the strip of satin (it uses less ribbon).
I have also made a purse with this box. Below is the box decorated with (retired) Raspberry Tart designer series paper and a false foldover made from the Sizzix Bigz Die Scallop Circle #2.
Instead of tucking in, I have it velcro coin closure and embellished it Stampin’ Up’s new designer hardware… a silver ‘Jumbo Grommet’ (p. 179 in 2009-10 IBC).
