Sizzix Blog Hop Entry

What is better than a treasure chest full of pretty pink chocolate candies? Not much, except if the box was created using one of Eileen Hull's Scoreboard dies from Sizzix. A quick little project to send to a fellow designer who is having some health issues. She truly is the "stamping queen" and every queen needs a treasure chest full of goodies.

Supplies you will need:

Scoreboard die cut of rectangle box, Pink wool-blend felt, Steam-a-Seam fusible web, Melissa Francis molded keyhole, Silver metal bookplate with prongs, Microbeads, Screw top brads, Silver acrylic paint, Hole punch, Scissors, Paper glue and an Iron.

The How to:

Cover the die cut with Steam-a-Seam2, following the manufacturers instructions.

Remove the paper backing and cover with Pink wool felt. Press well and trim around the edges of the die cut.

Use the hole punch to punch holes through the felt,adding four additional holes to the front of the box and two to the bottom edge of the box along the back edge.

Fold the box along the scorelines and insert brads into the holes, attaching the lid.

Attach the bookplate inserting the prongs into the top of the box, bending the ends over to the inside of the box lid.

Fill the center of the bookplate with glue, drop microbeads into the glue and let dry.

Glue keyhole to the front edge of the box lid. Let dry. Add silver paint to the front of the keyhole.

Using the point of a pencil dipped into silver paint, add dots of paint to the front flap of the box. Let dry.

Fill up the box with chocolate goodies and present it to the person of your choice.

Project Photo: Mother's Crafting - Photo Transfer with TAP
Cool 2 Craft - April 19th 12:00 est

It has gone from Winter straight to Summer here in Viriginia. I cannot believe how warm it has been this last week. I find myself sitting at my computer or at my sewing machine with the fan blowing so hard it moves papers/fabrics and the odd thread spool from my work surface. I believe tomorrow is going to be a little cooler so I will probably get more work done as I will not have to spend time searching for my windblown supplies.

I recently received my order of TAP, Transfer Artist Paper and have being playing around with it. Ever since I saw Lesley Riley demonstrate the product on Cool2Craft, I have been waiting to get my hands on some. My next appearance on Cool2Craft in the segment entitled; Sew far Sew good with Lorine Mason promised Mother's Day Crafting using photo transfer. My initial plan was to use a competitor's product but once I witnessed Lesley, I decided that TAP is the way to go. I will appear on the show on April 19th with a project called; Mother's Day Pockets. My parents are in a Senoir's living apartment building and my uses a walker to get around these days. She loves to personalize her walker and I decided what better way than a pocket that she can tie onto her walker featuring a photo of her and my dad, taken at their 50th Wedding Anniversary.

After my appearance on Cool2Craft, I will be offerring a kit for the project as well as packages of TAP for those of you interested in creating your own designs. The items can be purchased at:http://cool2craft/shop/lorine-mason.htm

I would love for you to tune into the program on April 19th at 12:00 est.
