Sizzix Scoreboard Dies Blog Hop - Box with Flap


Eileen Hull, the genius behind the new Scoreboard dies from Sizzix, has organized a Blog Hop to start today and I was honored to be asked to participate.

The die being featured today is the Box w/Flap. I was thrilled to find that the Pop-up Gift die will fit inside the box, so I altered the box by cutting away the side flaps and replacing them with paper flaps that wrap from the back. This converts the box into a card that opens. A gift card will fit (just barely) inside the box behind the pop-up gift.

Sizzix products used: Scoreboard Box w/FlapPop-up GiftDots & Flowers Textured Impressions, Birthday Phrases Clear Stamps

Other products used: Mat Board - Crescent; Patterned paper - Bo Bunny; Magnet and Ribbon - Basic Grey; General craft items - cardstock, floss, jump ring, tag, rhinestones, button, rub-ons, ink

The Scoreboard dies are specifically designed to be used with mat board. Eileen is an accomplished matboard artist and has published books on the subject. With these dies, the matboard is precision-scored for folding - something you cannot accomplish with a regular die or even, unless you're extremely steady with your knife, by hand. I'm impressed with how professional the box looks using matboard and a Scoreboard die.

Are you inspired? Keep hopping! Every other Wednesday from now until January, one of the eight ScoreBoard dies will be featured. Today's projects have all been created using the Scoreboard Box w/Flap (item #656137). This box can hold a deck of cards, crayons, ATC's, and gift cards. What are your ideas for this box?
