5 in 1 Template Box
I have been dying to make this box since Beate "previewed" it on her blog! The tutorial went up yesterday on SCS. So, today I wanted to do that AND the Ways to Use It Challenge, Heavy Metal, but unfortunately my 9 month old won't nap so I had to make a choice. Then after talking to Beate, she said "you should make a box with metal on it!", so that's exactly what I did! Two challenges in one! The box is a little time consuming with the tracing and cutting, but definitely worth it! I used Karen Foster metal sheets with my Cuttlebug Vintage die to make the corners of the lid, and then used my large oval punch to punch out a "bookplate" and put it in one of my small Cuttlebug embossing folders to emboss a heart on it. The metal sheets already have adhesive on the back which made this part VERY easy. Thanks for visiting and have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Paper- Oriental Trading patterned paper, DCWV tan and brown; Accessories- Karen Foster Metal sheets in copper, SU 5 in 1 Template, large oval punch, Cuttlebug Vintage die and To/From Embossing set, ribbon from Walmart.
