Friday Die Day

Hello friends

I feel like I've caught up a little with my days now,
I know it is Friday and that means...Friday Die Day.
This week I'm featuring Charming Cottage Box.
Designed by Becca Feeken as part of her Charming Christmas Collection
it is a 15 piece die set!

Here's the approximate measurements:

Bow: 0.70 x 0.80 in 1.80 x 2.00 cm
Door: 0.75 x 1.45 in 1.90 x 3.70 cm
Arch Window Insert and Rim (2 pcs): 0.75 x 1.25 in 1.90 x 3.20 cm
Sprig: 0.80 x 1.00 in 2.00 x 2.50 cm
Window Insert and Rim (2): 1.00 x 0.75 in 2.50 x 1.90 cm
Tag: 1.10 x 1.75 in 2.80 x 4.40 cm
Gingerbread Man Charm: 1.10 x 2.00 in 2.80 x 5.10 cm
Christmas Tree Charm: 1.60 x 2.20 in 4.10 x 5.60 cm
Swirl Accent: 1.95 x 0.45 in 5.00 x 1.10 cm
Rectangle Insert: 2.20 x 1.30 in 5.60 x 3.30 cm
Square Insert: 2.20 x 2.20 in 5.60 x 5.60 cm
Scallop Trim: 2.5 x 0.60 in 6.40 x 1.50 cm
Box: 5.50 x 6.40 in 14.00 x 16.30 cm

To create the box you need to cut two.
I've chosen kraft card.

Fold along all score lines except the 'triangles', you'll see from the picture
these sections remains upright.

Affix the base and then apply adhesive to all flaps to assemble.

The box constructed.

To decorate, this is the fun part.
I've only used a small amount of pieces from the die set here.
The scallop trim for the roof, door, windows, tree, tag and flourishes.

Layering the scallop trim for the roof panels.

Beginning to decorate.

The finished Cottage Box.

You can of course before you assemble the box, use the windows
to cut out apertures and place acetate behind.
I always think of these things once I'm finished!

The finished box measures approx. 2.6 x 2.5 x 4.5 inches.
Chocolate guestimate - I would say it could hold
4 (possibly 5) Ferrero Rocher, not surprisingly I didn't have any at home
to give you an accurate decision on that! 
It would hold 6-7 Celebrations, I had those at home...briefly! 

Charming Cottage Box is available to order on the website here.
My order is with Spellbinders right now so they should be 
winging their way over the pond within the next week or so.
Take a look at the full Charming Christmas Collection here,
Becca's designs are, as always, delightful.

Oh yes, if you collect the Hope and Charm-ing Collections the 
latest one has just been published on the website.
This time it is Afternoon Tea (just in time for GBBO).

I really enjoyed sourcing the charms for this collection,
from the cake stand, cutlery, teapots, cook book, champagne and more.

If you want to use your charms to create key rings/clips,

What does this weekend hold for you?
I'm attempting to de-jungle the garden.
Stop by on Sunday for Charity Kit Day and there will also be
a new YouTube video.

Take care friends.

Hi Christine,
Becca's done it again, what a great die set and so useful, not only for Christmas.
I need to tidy my garden too before the cooler weather really sets in, I'm not sure I'll get it done this weekend though.
Have a good day,
Chris xx

Hi Christine, What a great box. It would make a lovely goody box for children’s party’s, in fact why not let them decorate it, then goodies could be dropped in before they go home. Love Brenda xx
