Hey everyone! Leica here with today's Sizzix Tutorial to help you get started on your Valentine's Day projects!
First off, you need the awesome pizza box die.Sizzix Bigz XL Die Box, Mini Pizza When cutting this Bigz die in the Big Shot all you need is a pair of Extended Cutting Pads and the Extended Premium Crease Pad. Make a sandwich with your die and cardboard between the cutting pads and roll them through your Sizzix Big Shot machine.
I cut mine out of chipboard and painted them. I of course did 3 because I have 3 kids. Just keeping it real ;) Plus it is easier to do a whole bunch at the same time while the supplies are out. I painted them with Art Anthology paints and Liquidex.
Here is what they look like before I started decorating them.
I put the main decoration-heart-on first so that I knew how much to paint around the edges.
Here is what it looks like once I dry brushed paint all around the edges.
Layer the heart with the inside layer heart. I raised this one with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L-3D Foam Squares.
Layer it with the word love from this die Sizzix Originals Die Phrase, Love #3
Onto the next box!
This time I put a strip of My Mind's Eye pp down the middle. I used this die to create a decorative edge. Sizzix On the Edge Die Brackets
Start decorating the corner with hearts! I used this die for the hearts because it comes with 2 different hearts :) Sizzix Bigz Die Banners & Hearts
To make a decorative base, I started with a banner. I used the banner from the Banners & Hearts.
Pin the hearts with a couple hat pins from Maya Road, place a few rhinestones in the idle and voila!
I love when I can make my own colour of flower. I sprayed this white Prima flower with a pink Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. I absolutely love the contrast between red and pink. The silver flower in the middle is from Prima. I also decorated with My Mind's Eye Rhinestones.
Thanks for looking! I made a few more pizza boxes to use as gift card holders. Nice to have on hand. If you would like to check them out, visit my blog. :)
