Hi everyone- Eileen here... One of my favorite holidays is only a week away! Why do I love Valentine's Day so much? Well, the candy is always fun, and the love (of course)... but best of all, it gives you a reason to craft for your favorite people.
I I made a pretty girly project using the new Heart Box die.
This is a ScoreBoards die, which means it is specially designed to cut and score matboard, chipboard and other thicker materials to create sturdy, beautiful boxes that assemble quickly and easily. That means you get to use your extra time embellishing it! Did you know ScoreBoards are exclusive to Sizzix?
From the Heart (newest die collection) should now be available in your local scrapbook stores. And if you don't see the dies there, for heaven's sake, make sure and ask your store owner to order them! You will use these dies all year long, I promise.
I designed the Heart Box with vintage candy boxes in mind. A couple of things about this die... In order to get you the biggest box for your buck, you will have to cut the die twice- one set for the box bottom and one set for the lid. It may look a little tricky but trust me, I will show you an easy way to assemble this. You will be a pro in no time.
Tape tabs to edges of heart, staying as close to the outside of the heart as you can. Repeat with opposing side.
Wasn't that easy? I told you :-)
The little "i heart you" label is part of the Hearts & More Sizzlits set. I used a fun hat pin (that has been in my drawer forever) to attach the banner to the ribbon. I cut the banner from glitter wrapping paper.
On a personal note, here's a picture of me and my son who just returned from Afghanistan on Superbowl Sunday. Welcome home Chris- we are so proud of you!
