Sizzix Triangle Box Gift

The stamps are from the Joy’s Life Mother & Daughter set.

I am in LOVE with Sizzix dies.  This one was so easy and fun to use!  Let me show you how it works.

I’m using the Sizzix #656303 Long Triangle box die.  You’ll need the Sizzix extended cutting pads with this die.  That’s what you see in the photo.  Here they are all pretty because I haven’t used them yet, but after I run the die through, they’ll get all scratched up.  That’s the way it goes. 😉

I ran a 6×12 sheet of paper through 1 time and it gave me these two pieces.  The die scores the paper too, which is so nice.  All I had to do was bend the pieces at the score marks.  That may look like 2 different sheets of paper, but it’s a double sided sheet that I used.  The paper is by Anna Griffin, the Isabelle Collection.  I bought it last year.  It’s so pretty.

I used my ATG gun to tape the parts that needed taping.  When you make a box it’s important to use a strong adhesive.  Though it’s not shown, I used my Crop A Dile Big Bite to punch a hole in either side of the triangle box.  Then I threaded ribbon through to make a handle and added some candy hearts.

Here’s a link to a video about how to use the Crop A Dile and the Crop A Dile Big Bite.

Having some punches makes crafting life easier.  These punches are by Marvy Uchida.  They are my favorite for this kind of punching.  Martha Stewart Punches are my favorite for detailed punching.  I used the 2 punches shown to create the tag.  The smaller of the hearts is inked with ColorBox Fluid Chalk inkpad in Rouge.  I also embossed the pink heart using the D’vine Swirl Cuttlebug folder.  I love that one.

The best thing about the stamp set that I used is that if you don’t think your Mother-in-law is fabulous, don’t worry about it.  You can switch it out with another term or name.  I know a bunch of you just breathed a sigh of relief.  LOL!  My Mother & Daughter stamp set works perfectly with my Father & Son set too. You can check them out on the Joy’s Life Products Page.

Time for a Give Away…

Best Craft Oranizer.com has given me one of their great Spool & Store Ribbon Storage and Dispenser Systems to give away!  Have you seen it before?  Here’s a video I made all about it:  How to Use the Spool & Store Video

What a cute box! I guess my favorite item is my expression – but I just got my gypsy and I managed to weld two hearts together and make alot of cards that my granddaughters could use, so that is fast becoming my favorite. I don’t even know everything it can do and I love it already. I also love my punches. Thanks for all your great advice!

    Morning Joy! Very cute box!
    I’m fairly new (December) to crafting but I’d have to say my Cricut and Cuttlebug are my favorite things! I wanted a Sizzix Big Shot but neither Michael’s, JoAnn’s or Hobby Lobby sell it around me.

    Can’t wait to see what Craft project you have for tomorrow!

    Cute box — I really like the paper. My favorite crafting item is my Gypsy (and the Expression). I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with the ribbon I have which is just thrown in a drawer at the moment. It would be great to have one of these ribbon organizers so I don’t have such a mess to work through just to see what I have. Thanks for the opportunity to win one.

    Joy, I first wanted to thank you for setting up your site, I am new to scrapbooking/card making and although there are 100’s of sites, I have only bookmarked a few, yours being one. I find it informative and fairly easy to incorporate into what I am doing. What is my favorite crafting item, right now it is ribbon and I love how it enhances a layout whether it’s cards or a page with my favorite photos. I too am trying different systems with the ribbon so it’s easy to use. Thanks for the demo. I did buy a cricut and I am sure as I learn how to use it better, it will also be one of my favorites,along with all kinds of embellishments. Thank you

  26. I would have to say my favorite craft item is my Cricut. i don’t know what I ever did without it. I have been following your blog for awhile and love every one of your videos. Thanks for giving us a chance to win this great gift.

  45. What a great box for valentine’s or anytime! I love all crafting things, but my very favorite thing is my cricut expression. – – The ribbon spool looks very neat and would really organize all my ribbon.

  46. finecrafter says:

    That box is so cute, but I don’t have anything Sizzix. I just bought a similar box SVG at LD, though:). I’d have to say that my Cricut E is my favorite crafting item, but it wouldn’t be half as good without MTC! Thanks for a great giveaway- I really NEED a home for my ribbon!
