Welcome everyone, to the third of five Sizzix ScoreBoard blog hops. Every two weeks, we give you a sneak peek at one of the new dies from the soon-to-be-released Celebrations collection, so you can see lots of ways it may be used. I am very grateful to the talented designers who have taken the time to work with each one and make them look so good! This week the featured die is the Rectangle Box which measures 3 3/8″ x 1 3/4″ x 1 7/8, a great size for small treasures such as jewelry, pins, a gift card, or of course, chocolate. Please hop on down the list and see what everyone has done with their boxes!
IF YOU LEAVE A COMMENT here or on any of the participating designers’ blogs, you may be randomly selected to win a ScoreBoard die, a $40 value. We love hearing your thoughts on what we have done- don’t be shy. On May 12, you will want to come back- we’re making cakes! Thanks for stopping by.
I heard that my friend Lisa was in the hospital last week. The funny thing is, if you met her, you would never know she constantly battles an ongoing condition. She always has a smile on her face and lives her life joyfully. I first met her a few years ago at CHA- she is a fellow designer and also a member of this hop! We all decided to go out for dinner one night. Everyone was in the mood for KFC and so about 8 of us piled in her little car and headed off for some finger lickin’ goodness. Every year we try and get together and hit our favorite spot for dinner together. So Lisa, this project is for you! Keep smiling, girlfriend…
Here’s how I made Lisa’s box.
You will need:
Sizzix Big Shot
ScoreBoard Rectangle Box die
Bigz 3D flower
ice blue matboard 6″ x 13″
old dictionary page
Krylon spray adhesive
coordinating color paint chip
Zip Dry Paper Glue
Melissa Frances crown
Clearsnap stamp pad
1. Adhere book page to matboard with spray adhesive. If you want to position words to be in a certain place, cut to fit before adhering. I used an old dictionary page with the word “friend” on it. The right side always faces down on a ScoreBoard die.
2. Assemble box. I used brads to attach the flap but you could also use ribbon or just red line tape.
3. Add embellishments. I tied a green/blue ribbon around the top of the lid and added a flower made from a Martha Stewart paint chip and glued it to a clover that was left over from a St. Patrick’s Day project. The crown was white and I rubbed it lightly with silver metallic ink for a little glitz. Had to have a crown- Lisa is the StampinQueen!
4. I used two strong magnets as closures. I put one under the flap and aligned the other one on the back side of the front panel.
5. Add get well wishes and some chocolate!
