It’s a Sizzix ScoreBoards Blog Hop!

Yes, I’m blog hopping again, this time using one of the ScoreBoards Dies from Sizzix, designed my friend Eileen Hull. Looking at the cute little folded Scalloped Box, my immediate thought was that it was the perfect size for holding a gift card. Turns out, I was right!

I wanted the box to look beachy, so I turned it on its side, painted it with Americana paint from DecoArt (Indian Turquoise), and sanded it to reveal the white matboard underneath. I also used another Celebrations die (Flower Layers Set #3) to create the beach blooms. After die-cutting, I moistened the paper with water and bent it around the end of my paintbrush to fold and twist the petals. After inking the folded flowers with Creamy Brown ink from Clearsnap, I adhered them using my trusty Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive over stems die-cut using the Flourish Corner die and trimmed apart.

I then painted the inside using Butter paint and sanded it to distress. I painted and distressed an old chipboard tag, added rub-on letters and attached it with my 450 Quick Dry. I slipped in the gift card, added some sticky velcro, and POOF! Dressed up gift card.

Hop over to the blogs of some fellow craft designers to see what they created with the “Box with Scalloped Flap and Flowers” die. When you are finished, hop back to Eileen Hull’s Blog (or if you get lost, she has the master list) and vote for your favorite project. The winning designer will win the die that made this gift card holder. Don’t forget to leave a comment here or on any other participating blog for a chance to win a die from Eileen’s first collection!
