Two Projects in One Day? I'm Cookin'!

Well I got inspired and busy and this is the result. I'm having a good time, can you tell? This box and mini book is made from the Sizzix Petal Card die. I saw this also on You Tube and went on a search for the die since I didn't own it. It is scarcer than hen's teeeth let me tell you. I finally found one, paid more for it than any die I've ever bought but don't regret it one bit since it is such a versatile die. The pictures show you first the little box which is made from two of the petal card die cuts glued together. You can decorate the outside as you wish. Then the little mini book inside the box is made again from the petal card die with the covers made of chipboard and the pages from designer paper. I think you can see on the open pages of the book how the die is folded to create pockets for tags which you can use for stickers, journaling, pictures, etc. Then it is all put together with the Bind It All, my new favorite tool. My daughter is kidding me about this because she bought it for me about 5 years ago and I am just now getting to use it. And it is VERY EASY to use! I again used the Madeline paper from K & Co with various flowers, stickers, brads etc. The little lace medallion on the box cover was one I made on my embroidery machine. Gotta love my Bernina! With this die, you can also made a square box as is shown in my last post and also a heart shaped book or box. I'm working on that next......Valentine's Day remember? Enjoy!
