Clip Joint





Here is the latest in the Sizzix ScoreBoard Blog Hop. This cute little rectangular box is perfect for those great things that come in small packages. Fill it with kisses, small embellishments or anything tiny you want to put in it. Be sure to check out what other designers have done and vote for your favorite on ScoreBoard Designer Eileen Hull's blog.
I don't know about you, but I always have trouble keeping up with small pieces and I hate clutter. I turned my box into a clip joint to hold my paper clips. It adds a cheery note to my desktop too!

Supplies:
Big Shot
Rectangular box die
Matboard
Graphic 45 paper
Brads
Gingham ribbon
3M Super 77 Spray Adhesive
Krylon Totally Tangerine Spray Paint
Be Creative® Adhesive
Velcro Dots

Directions:
1. Cut and assemble box bottom with double-stick tape. Spray both pieces with Krylon paint. Allow to dry.
2. Cover box bottom with paper using Super 77.
3. Cover box top with reverse side of paper using Super 77. Attach top to bottom with brads.
4. Tie ribbon around box top, threading on paper clips before tying bow.
5. Add Velcro dots and fill with clips.
6. Enjoy or give as a gift.

Isn't that thrifty. You could make a whole set to store chipboard or other embellishments. Cute.

What fun - and useful as well. The perfect combination I think.

I was afraid sizzix was going to become a relic a few short years ago! Glad I stuck with it. All these new dies are way better than the competition! These sample projects are all so beautiful too! Gotta get a 2nd job just for sizzix dies! Thanks!
