Sizzix Scoreboard Blog Hop - the end of a beautiful thing.



This is the last post on the Sizzix Scoreboards Blog Hop. I hope everyone has had a chance to visit all the blogs to see the creativity in this group of designers. Elieen Hull's Scoreboards are being premiered at the Craft and Hobby Association Tradeshow in Anaheim in just a few days. She really has a hit on her hands. I can't stop thinking of ways to use these dies!

This little gift box is very simple to make, but is as much a gift as the gift it it is designed to hold. The recipient can recycle it to hold mundane items such as paper clips or safety pins while adding beauty to a desktop or dresser.

Supplies

Stamp-It Australia paper (which I've been hoarding for almost two years!)
Velveteen and Crimped ribbons from Stampin'Up!® (not sure if they carry this anymore-it came from my stash.)
Prima flowers
1" brad
Beacon Quick Grip Adhesive (my all-time favorite adhesive)

Directions
Cover box and base with paper. Glue ribbon around top and bottom, being careful to keep the ribbon on the box bottom below the lid line so you don't create excess thickness.

Attach flowers to box top with brad. Line box lid with additional paper to hide brad shank.

Check out the rest of the Blog Hop by going to www.eileenhull.blogspot.com. You'll be glad you did!

I'm off to CHA Thursday and will try to post info on any hot new items I see. I'm already planning to check out Fuseworks' new ink jet transparency film that can be attached to glass to create some cool projects. I'll let you know what I think.

Go hug someone you love!






I received product from Sizzix and Beacon Adhesives for this blog hop event.

Candice, this is beautiful and you're right in saying the box is as much a gift as the gift! In your case especially :-) I am so glad you have been here for the Hop- many thanks my friend!
