Hello Crafties !
This box was made from scratch as I wanted a size to fit the paper embossed using Rachael Bright’s Diamond textured folder. The finished size of the box is 7ins by 6ins and the height is 3ins. The word Beautiful from the Handwritten Love Thinlits is a perfect title for any gift box.
Wouldn’t you agree the Tim Holtz punched shapes Daisy and Branch are an ideal size for this box ? They are a convenient option to die-cutting smaller flowers and the punches are very sturdy.
The Frameworks Trellis die-cuts add an interesting layer to the paper surface. This was painted with Distress Paints Tarnished Brass and Black Soot.
Autumn is unimaginable in tropial Singapore, but who can resist the Fall colours ? Ranger’s Gold Perfect Pearls rubbed onto the embossed areas gives a metallic effect that is really beautiful.
I’ve lined the inside of the box with more Bo Bunny patterned paper.
Here are the Sizzix and Bo Bunny products.
I LOVE the Big Shot Plus for its wider platform which gives more room for the dies. All Big Shot machines cut different brands of dies, no worries !
Your sandwich for intricate ultra-tin dies on the Big Shot Plus (from the bottom) :
1) The Platform
2) Adapter A (the thicker Adapter, light teal in colour)
3) One Cutting Pad
4) The paper
5) The Ultra Thin Dies FACING DOWN
6) Lastly, the other Cutting Pad
…. then Roll through your Big Shot Plus.
Rolling the Brush over the die (with the Foam) easily removes the paper from the dies !
Instructions on how to construct a box are everywhere, this is one way : Chipboard Box.
Thank you for coming by, I hope this project will inspire you, have a good crafty week ahead !
