Box #3...

got a chance to go to J's this weekend...and he has lots of new stuff in! besides these extra long dies, he has lots of new punches too. if you have a chance, go down to his store and check it out! I purchased this new Box #3...I fell in love with it when I saw a sample at the store that Cheryl had made. It's a pretty big box and can fit a lot of goodies inside =)
here is what it looks like once it's finished. It takes one 12 x 12 CS or DP (5 x 12 for each strip to cut the box out and you need 2 strips). you need to cut out 4 pieces...2 of each one. you will see what I mean when you see the die. I used my oval nesties to cut out the window and placed an acetate window over the opening.
here's what it looks like when it's assembled and the box is opened...
here's the side view of the box so you can see how deep it is.
stay tuned as I will show you my final product tomorrow...
I did two different styles of many ways to finish this box =)
Happy Monday everyone! it's almost Christmas and I'm getting ready with these boxes as gifts to give to my blogging sisters, co-workers, family and friends!

Hi Joy!

I got this box die and cut it with the exact same paper! We must be on the same wavelength... though I didn't cut the oval in it... gotta try that next time.

Wow, the box does look pretty big. I think I have the smaller one (box#2). Mine is just too small for cookies I bake. I think I will be making a few of the small boxes however to put some chocolate inside for last minute gifts.

Mahalo for sharing.
