Hi all! Jeanne here today with a sweet little acorn box tutorial featuring some very fun new Sizzix Big Shot Plus dies!
I used Sizzix Thinlits Box w/Fancy Lid for today's project. Though this is a Big Shot Plus die set this particular die set will also work in the Big Shot machine (usually that is not the case and you'll need the larger machine).
To cut, the sandwich requires use of a pair of Big Shot Plus Cutting Pads and the Big Shot Plus machine's included Platform; when using the Standard Platform, Adapter A is required. Because of their intricacy, Thinlits Dies may require up to three passes to cut. If extra ejection is needed for easier separation of the die-cut from the design, place wax paper between the Thinlits Die and your material and then cut.
Die cut box bottom from brown cardstock.
Die cut lid from brown cardstock and add pen stitching with a white pen.
Die cut the bow (included in the Sizzix Thinlits Box w/Fancy Lid) from patterned paper.
Add brown ink to the edges of bow pieces and then assemble. Very cute bow!!!
I finished my box by adding a little strip of patterned paper along the bottom of the box and adding a charm I made using a scrap of the patterned paper. Inside the box will be a chain to put the pendant on.
Have a great day!
