Simple Spring Box

I am battling a bad cold so I will likely be taking the weekend off from blogging until my head clears. Hopefully I will be able to get back to blog hopping soon!

Today I wanted to share this little box I created. I used my box tutorial to create the box and then just added the decorations and handle.
I used Spellbinders Daisy Heads dies for the center flower. I inked the dye with color box yellow ink before running it through my NEW Wizard (LOVE that thing!) I also decorated the border (Spellbinders Pierceabilities 5 1/2 Pinking Border) with the same ink. I ran the border through my Wizard and then embossed the shape. When I removed the paper and die, I pierced through the template holes and then I sponged the color over the embossed designs. I love how simple this was to create.

The large classic scalloped rectangle was cut out and then I scored the pattern using my Scor-Pal. I only used part of the rectangle for this so you could see the three sides of scallops on the front.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh how interesting...I'm considering the wizard myself. Not that you have time to answer..but maybe in one of your next posts?

What type of die cut machine did you use before?

What do you love most about your Wizard, anything in particular separate it above other die cutting machines you have used?

Thanks for sharing your box; it's adorable!
