Sneak Peek with Gable Box and Hearts/Paws Dies

A Sneak Peek especially for you! 

My projects include the Gable Box Die and the Hearts/Paw Prints Die Set from Suzanne Cannon's new and exciting collection of dies and stamps! Tune in on June 5 to see lots of projects on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog and web site.  Not too long to wait...

For both of these I cut the Gable Box from 100# Soft White Cardstock (Elizabeth Craft Designs).  Leaving the Gable Box die cut flat, I then placed either the Hearts or the Paw Prints die onto the box where I wanted it to cut and put it through my die cut machine.  Color was added and then the boxes can be folded up adding adhesive to the bottom flaps.  However, before folding up the red/pink box, I glued a piece of acetate over the cut out hearts area.  With the holes covered even small candies like regular M&Ms could be added to the box for a fun gift.

The word "special" is part of one of the phrases on the Please Join Us stamp set.  I masked off the rest of the phrase, inked just the word special, stamped it on a scrap, added color, layered it and attached it to the box.  The hearts added to the top of the box are drop outs from die cutting.

For the tag on the Paw Prints Box I folded White Soft Finish Cardstock, cut it with the small Stitched Circles Die (Elizabeth Craft Designs) being sure to leave a cutting area off the edge of the fold so the tag would be folded after cutting, inked the circle, and added one of the drop out Paw Prints to the tag.  This would be adorable filled with small dog treats.
