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.


Yum!!!!!!

  14. I was afraid sizzix was going to become a relic a few short years ago! Glad I stuck with it. All these new dies are way better than the competition! These sample projects are all so beautiful too! Gotta get a 2nd job just for sizzix dies! Thanks!
