Hello crafters! Aida here again and today for your Sizzix Inspiration I have a sweet treat box using Eileen Hull's Canister Sizzix ScoreBoards Bigz XL die. This is an amazing die because you can customise the height of the canister depending on your needs. I've made it full size which gives you the measurement of 4.5 inches tall. Don't worry about getting lost as complete instructions on how to die-cut the canister and the pieces you will need are printed on the inside of the cover. Together with the canister die, I've used Lori Whitlock's Simple Flower Sizzix Thinlits, the Sizzix Movers and Shapers Magnetic Sized Ovals as well as Sizzix Thinlits Holiday Greens.
The very useful product for making box projects are the Little Sizzles Mat Board. To die cut the Canister ScoreBoards die in the Big Shot machine the sandwich is as follows: Extended Cutting Pad, ScoreBoards die, mat board, Extended Cutting Pad. I started by die-cutting the canister, and then using the smallest Sized Oval, punched a hole on one side of the canister. The Base Tray is needed to die-cut the Movers and Shapers Sized Oval and taping the Oval with washi will stop it from moving when running through the Big Shot. The Sizzix Sandwich for die cutting Movers & Shapers is: Standard Cutting Pad, Base Tray, Magnetic Movers & Shapers die, material, Standard Cutting Pad. Roll this sandwich through your Sizzix Big Shot Machine.
This is the fully assembled canister. In addition to glue, I stapled the sides of the lid with the Tiny Attacher to make sure it stayed in place.
The whole piece was colored with Distress Paint Picked Raspberry, when dry Distress Crackle was painted all over the canister and cover. After the Clear Crackle dried, I rubbed Distress Stain Picket Fence into the cracks. On the inside of the canister, adhere a clear transparency over the oval.
Decorate the canister with a white dotted ribbon adhered to the lower half, add a bow, then the very pretty die-cut flowers from Lori Whitlock's Simple Flower Sizzix Thinlits. A lovely red rose brad in the center completed the flower die-cut and little branches from the Holiday Greens Sizzix Thinlits were layered in. To die cut in the Sizzix Big Shot Machine with Thinlits dies the sandwich is as follows: Magnetic Platform, Standard Cutting Pad, material, Thinlits die, Standard Cutting Pad.
Thank you for joining me today. This project was one I really enjoyed making and I hope you will too!
