ScoreBoards Blog Hop

Would you believe this is our last Sizzix ScoreBoard Blog Hop? For the last 4 months, we've been taking a closer look at these fantastic dies that Eileen Hull developed. As you're probably aware of by now, what makes these dies different is that they cut and score chipboard and matboard. It opens a whole new world of creativity!

Today's featured die is called the Box with Lid and it is such a great die. You get both the base and the lid on one die. Add a little tape, and you have the perfect little box for a multitude of purposes, especially giving handmade jewelery! (Although Beav thinks they're fantastic for his rock specimens, too!)

For this sample, I added the tape to the outside of the box. This is 1/4" Scor-Tape, a very strong tape that you can tear by hand (similar to red lined tape, if you're not familiar with it, but without that pesky static-filled piece in your way). Once I had that adhered, I decided to cover it with microbeads for an elegant, dimensional look. To accent the top, I scored a Maya Road Sheer Blossom and added Ranger Glossy Accents as an adhesive. Sprinkle some more microbeads, add a rhinestone and voila! A beautiful accent for the top of the box. To finish, I simply added a stamped image from Papertrey Ink's Vintage Labels set stamped in Vintage Cream ink for a soft look.

This collection of ScoreBoards dies are arriving in stores now, so if make sure to keep an eye open! Eileen has a new collection being introduced at CHA next week - I can't wait! Thanks so much for coming along on this blog hop today; all the other talented participants are listed on on Eileen's blog, so follow along with all the fun!

Be well,
