Friday Die Day

Hello friends

Aww thank you for the lovely comments on my inky 
background bird card. I have another project to share with you 
that I created at Eileen's class, just waiting for a day that isn't too 
dull to take photos! 

I'm on a bit of an inky roll!
This week's Friday Die Day features Boxed In,
one of the dies from the Perfect Match Collection by Debi Adams.

This is a 3 piece die set and the approximate measuresments are:
Box Half: 3.00 x 4.60 in 7.60 x 11.70 cm
Box Flap: 2.25 x 1.75 in 5.70 x 4.40 cm
Opening: 0.50 x 1.00 in 1.30 x 2.50 cm

I started with a piece of A5 card (Papermill) and blended various 
Distress Oxides. I then spritzed with water and patted dry.

To create the box you cut the largest die twice and the flap once.
There is a little semi circular die that you can positon to make 
the opening, I did this after I took this photo!

Fold along those score lines, insert and affix into place the flap
and assemble, it is dead easy and makes absolute sense when folding.

From the leftover inked card I die cut a few 
little flowers and leaves, they didn't disappear for long! 

Tied twine around the box and fixed into place with a little oval die cut sentiment.

Popping the leaves and flowers into place and adding pearls to the centre.

It's a diddy box - finished size is 
2 inch wide x 3.375 inch height x 0.50 inch.
You could use it for a gift card, jewellery,
notes - written or monetary! 

Or great table favours, you could pop a lucky dip card inside.

Fun to make and I'm really enjoying the inking.
Boxed In is available on the website as pre-loved here.
Just a couple of die sets available.

Other news...
Julia Watts is on Hochanda again today with the Spellbinders

Take care friends, wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Morning Christine.
Thank you, a lovely little box.
I am a bit confused with all these inks, I have all the
distress ones. I had some colour clouds for Christmas, and now there are oxides?.
I shall just use pretty papers, lol.
Take care and have fun Kitty.

Hi Christine
I love your little box and the inking really sets it off. I’m just watching the repeat show from last night on Hochanda with Julia Watts before I get ready for work.
Have a good day.

Lovely little box and thank you for posting the finished size as whenever I read about boxes it’s difficult to gauge them finished and what would fit in

Jean Eve said...
