Welcome to the Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop! I'm so honored to be included in my 3rd Sizzix Blog Hop, and this one is the best one yet! 60+ very talented designers are participating (don't worry! You have a week to go through them!); for the next couple of months, we will be each showing you our individual takes on a particular die on Thursday. Three die designers, Eileen Hull, Karen Burniston and Brenda Pinnick have come up with some fantastic dies to showcase.
The first die that we are showcasing is one of Eileen's new Scoreboard dies. It is the new 3D house for the Sizzix Big Shot Pro and it is designed to work with matboard and chipboard, for a sturdier creation (you can use it with paper, too, though!). For my project, I decided to keep it simple and create a fun gift box for a teacher. Making a little red schoolhouse was easy with some red and brown acrylic paint. For the roof detail, I simply drew in shingle lines with a Copic marker.
I then added a flagpole (which is one of those fancy fork-like toothpicks painted white). The flag, an apple for the teacher, was created with Papertrey Ink cardstock and the stamps were from Papertrey's Teacher's Apple.
I used hot glue to adhere one side of the roof piece, but then I left the other side open. I thought it would be fun to let it open and close, so I used some magnetic tape along the inside. I think this would be so cute filled with candy or even a teacher's survival kit of hand sanitizer, a small tissue pack and a little bottle of headache medicine. The possibilities are endless with this fun die!
There are two ways to proceed on the Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop. The first way is to use the blinkie tool on my right margin; this fantastic widget (developed by the amazing Jen Goode! Thanks Jen!) allows you to go back or forward to the people next to me on the list. The second way to navigate through the blog hop is to go to the Sizzix Blog for a complete list of participants. Take your time & enjoy! The talent that has been assembled is amazing!
