The International Ambassadors are blog hopping!

Hello friends

  Some of the Spellbinders International Ambassadors are having an
informal blog hop and this time we have chosen as our theme...
boxes!  There are lots of new dies from Spellbinders featuring boxes,
I'm a huge fan of a gift box - so useful! 
For my project I've chosen to use the Contour Pillow Box steel rule die.

As this is a steel rule die it is possible to cut up to 8 layers in a single pass through the
Platinum machine.

For each box you cut two, I've used some double sided tape on the side flaps.
The die places the fold lines.

Pop the end flaps in and it's a perfect pillow box.

To decorate I've chosen looped twine and Shabby Posies topped with a button and
Shortie Tabs - these are new die designs from Spellbinder designer -
Tammy Tutterow - they are available to pre-order now from your 
Spellbinders retailer.  
You can see all of Tammy's amazing new range here.

Simply tied with twine and the tag added.

Flowers added and created in different colours with stamped sentiments.

For more 'boxy' inspirational projects please hop along to my fellow
Ambassadors' blogs -  have fun!

  8. These are beautiful, Christine. I'm sitting here thinking of all the hours I've spent in the past cutting out by hand to make these boxes. This die would make my life so much easier lol. I actually have a die cutter that will take the big dies now as well so I think I may just HAVE to get this one lol.
