With the Holiday Catalog released yesterday, one of the things that you find with any catalog are those products that you see and think, “eh, sure that is cute enough but I can’t imagine really using it”. Well, I decided to go out on a limb and get one of those items – the Curvy Keepsake Box thinlit die. I thought it looked kind of interesting but I didn’t know if I would use it… turns out, it is going to be one of my most used holiday catalog purchases! So-many-cute-boxes-to-make!!! All thanks for Lynn Starzl for getting me hooked on the possibilities including this box:
This was the thank you gifts I made for my Stamp & Share event last weekend. I gave them to each presenter and inside the box were little variety packs of embellishments from the Holiday Catalog plus the Dazzling Details bottle with a tag made from the Curvy Keepsake Box die and one of the new All is Calm Snowflake embellishments. Here is what the die set looks like:
So when the Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration girls did Friday Favorite’s today, I knew what I was going to pick!
Tips for this project:
- You will need to cut two pieces of cardstock to make these boxes, use Fast Fuze or Sticky Strip to adhere them together to make sure you don’t have your box falling apart later!
- Do you embellishing and/or stamping on your box AFTER you cut out the shape but BEFORE you assemble your box
- Tie your handles together with a box so it is easy to get into and out of the box without cutting or ripping anything
- Use the magnetic platform to make sure your die doesn’t move when cutting out the box sides
