So you probably remember this post last week where I talked a little about my friend, Eileen's, great new venture with the folks at Sizzix. I decided to doll up another piece, this one is the Box with Flap. It's a great size, perfect for a deck of cards, or as I will use this one, a couple of gift cards.
I used Cosmo Cricket papers to cover this completely, which is great because then you really don't have to worry about what color your matboard you have. Here's a little peek at the space that you get once it's together:
Isn't that fun? I used a Basic Grey magnetic for the closure - the thin, strong nature of these makes it just perfect for this kind of project. The oval bookplates are an old Sizzix die and the stamped sentiments are PTI's Mixed Messages and Mega Mixed Messages. I loved the layout of the box so much that I decided to make the card to match! I'm so pleased with the way it turned out - I can't wait to make more!
I hope this is starting to get you excited about these dies (although, let's face it, it would be pretty hard to get more excited than I am!). Be well.
