Are you like me and love Spellbnders products?
I think they were the first dies I bought after 'graduating' to a turn-the-handle machine from one of those old hand-held QK gadgets that only cut teeny weeny 2" square dies. Oh My! how much easier and more addictive did die-cutting get then!!!
Well, the machines have got bigger, the die collection immense and the scope and fun of the whole die cutting addiction hasn't waned for a minute! So you will understand how thrilled I am to share the news that I've been invited to be part of the Spellbloggers team, sharing wonderful Spellbinders goodies and things made with them.
I can't resist a nice bit of alliteration, so from now on I will share a Spellbinders project on either a Spellblogger Saturday or a Spellblogger Sunday - I hope you'll come by each weekend to see what's new. Lookout for special offers and give-aways in future weeks too 😁
OK, so exciting news imparted, and time to share my first project.
It's a simple little box, made with Nestabilities dies - we probably all have a good few sets, they really are the staples of die-cutting - especially the basic shapes and Labels sets.
I used my Nesties plain circles set to make this box
Over the last few years I've made a few boxes using different shapes and sizes of Nestability dies, the basics are the same for each shape, but its easy to adapt the idea too. For example, on this one I added a length of ribbon to join the box and lid together and made a tab at the front to lift the lid. I have an old tutorial for the basic box HERE
2 shades of green card
Chipboard - I use old cereal packets
Green satin ribbon to match the card
My tutorial for this style of box is HERE
I used the following items to decorate this box, but will share more about that in next week's post
Spellbinders Die D-Lites Create a Lily
Spellbinders Die D-Lites Sprigs Etched Dies
'Foamiran' foam sheet for flowers
various gems and dots
Here's a closer look at the decorated lid, I hope you'll come back for next week's Spellbloggers Saturday to read more
