Hello, hello! Anna Wight here with a Sizzix Tutorial for you. Valentines Day is a favorite holiday of mine. Not only is the day "sweetheart" special, but also because I enjoy gifting a bit of Valentine goodness to some of my crafty friends. For this year's gifts I decided to use the Loaf Pan ScoreBoards L die by Eileen Hull. Not only is this a great die for gifting baked goodies, but I think it's great for gifting crafty goodies, too! Let me show you how fun and easy it is to create unique gift wrappings using the Loaf Pan.
I started by die cutting the Loaf Pan ScoreBoards L die. The Scoreboards dies are really fun to use. They allow you to create unique projects using Sizzix Mat Board which you can cover in your favorite scrapbook papers. Just sandwich your material and die between a pair of Standard Cutting Pads and put it through your Sizzix Big Shot machine.
To create my Loaf Pan, I chose white Sizzix Mat Board and beautiful patterned paper from the Twist & Shout line by Cosmo Cricket (2008). I adhered the patterned paper to both sides of the mat board. Once the loaf pan was die cut, I lightly inked the fold lines and edges with brown Distress Ink from Ranger.
I punched holes in each corner using a Crop-A-Dile and fastened the corners together using SEI Pearl Brads.
Once the Loaf Pan was assembled, I filled it with gifts for my crafty friend. I included a fun roll of red and white Recollections Twine, two rolls of My Minds Eye Washi Tape, stamps from Whipper Snapper Designs and Craft Smart, and lots of yummy Dove chocolate hearts. Mmmmmm!
To create a tag for my gift, I die cut birch colored card stock and patterned paper using two of the shapes from the Mini Recipe Box & Cards Thinlits set, from Where Women Cook.
Once the pieces were die cut, I lightly inked the edges, adhered the pieces together with adhesive, and punched a hole towards the top with a small paper punch. I stamped a sentiment from the Everyday Sentiments cling mount set from Whipper Snapper Designs using jet black StazOn ink.
I added a puffy glittered heart to the tag and attached the tag to the gift with a quick wrap of May Arts jute twine tied in a bow.
Thanks for joining me today! I hope you are inspired!
