Gift Box with Sizzix Die

Today I want to share a cute little gift box that is just the right size to put a gift card or some other small gift.   I used the Sizzix ScoreBoard box with scallop flap die.



I really love how easily the Sizzix dies cut through even the thickest materials . . . even the rhinestone sticker sheets from The Buckle Boutique!  To start with I cut a piece of pink cardstock with the die.  Easy.  Just turn the crank on the Big Shot and you are done.



Next I cut a small piece of the rhinestone sticker sheets from The Buckle Boutique.  This pattern is from the Boudoir Quad Sheet.  The lips all over are so cute!  I cut a piece that was just a little bigger than the flap portion of this die.  The I set the rhinestone sticker sheet on the die with the backing touching the die . . . put the top plate on . . . crank . . . 


And this is what you get!  PERFECTLY cut scalloped edges that are cut right through the rhinestone "gems".  The reason it can cut through them is that they are not a hard rhinestone.  These "gems" are made from a soft material that you can cut with scissors, a craft knife and yes . . . a die cutting machine . . . but they sparkle and shine like real rhinestones.


Next, I peeled off the backing from the rhinestone sticker sheet and applied it to the flap portion of the box.  I used a little ribbon to help keep it closed after I put the gift card inside.


I gave my mother a gift card in this box for her birthday, and my niece now wants one of these little boxes for herself.  She is a girl that loves her bling.
