A Tea Party with Lori’s Sizzix Dies

Hi everyone!  It’s Traci, from Artsy Albums, and I’m excited to be on Lori’s blog today to share some fun projects using her Sizzix dies.  As you know, Lori designs fabulous cutting files for our digital cutting machines, and creates beautiful paper collections for Echo Park.  She also designs wonderful dies for Sizzix!  For crafters who don’t have a digital cutting machine, or who want to cut heavier materials like chipboard, these are so much fun!

I used several different dies and stamps to create a sweet tea party set for a little girl.  I’ve added links below so you can get all of the details.  The papers and embellishments are from the Petticoats collection that Lori designed for Echo Park.

Before you can have a tea party, you have to invite some friends.  I used Lori’s Sizzix Bigz Teapot die to create my invitation.  To create a card, I folded my white card stock and cut the shape out with my fold positioned to the right of the handle’s cut line.  This prevented that area of the handle from cutting and allowed the fold to stay in tact.  I then cut two more teapots to add to the front, and inside, of the card.

 

I created some adorable treat packaging with the Square Favor Box Bigz Die and the Bigz Favor Bag die.  The “Hello Cupcake” die and stamp sentiment are from Lori’s Birthday Framelits Set.

I created a thank-you card using several of the dies and a stamp from the Jar and Teapot Framelit set and finished my set with a cute little mini album.  The Cupcake #2 Bigz die was perfect for this since I wanted to cut several pieces of thick chipboard.  After cutting the cupcake out of pattern paper also, I glued the page pieces together and punched a hole in one side for a binding ring.  A little ribbon and a lot of enamel dots finished off my mini in no time.

I hope you visit some of the links I’ve included to learn more about Lori’s wonderful designs over at Sizzix.com, and stop by my blog at Artsy Albums sometime and say hello!

Happy crafting everyone!

Star Box Tutorial with Corri

Hi everyone!  Corri here today sharing an assembly tutorial for the new 2 Compartment Star Box.  This fun box is so easy to assemble.

When you cut your box, this is what you’ll end up with.

First, you will form the two compartments of your box.  On the two large red pieces, fold along all the score lines.  Apply glue to one tab at a time and line up with the edge of the star base.  Give your glue a few seconds to dry before forming the points on the star so that the edges don’t slip.

Once your have the two halves formed, apply glue and press them together.   Hold them together for a little bit until the glue holds tight.

Now its time to form the lid.  Glue the two thin, long red pieces together to form a long strip.  Fold along all the score lines.  Match up the edges to make sure the line up to the star shape and then apply glue to one tab at a time and form the edges around the star shape.

Here’s how it looks from the outside.

After you from the lid, you can add the decorative cover piece (larger slit) and the trim pieces to the edge of the lid.

There you have it!  Super easy and so much fun!
