This week’s Blog Hop Features the Checkbook Cover ScoreBoard Die which I made into a Notebook. This is another great Die created by my friend designer Eileen Hull. When I saw this great design I thought of so many uses for it besides a checkbook cover…which is why I decided to go with a vintage style notebook cover for the hop.
Pictured below is the Note Pad Cover
I made with the Checkbook
I used Ann Butler Designs Iridescents in Sheer Gold, Silver and Copper to cover the
matboard pieces and let them dry. I glued a piece of vintage lace to the top edge
and then assembled it using brads. I added lettering to say “notes 2 remember”.
On the inside I glued in a notepad. This was a quick and easy project…there are lots of other great projects to check out by following the Blog Hop…click on the links below to get started:
Thanks for stopping by the Sizzix Blog Hop! ScoreBoards are a brand new kind of die
designed for Sizzix by my friend, designer Eileen Hull. ScoreBoards cut and score matboard to create boxes, totes and folders. As the ship date for the dies gets closer, Eileen realized that the best way to show them off was to ask some of her designer friends to play with them and see what they could whip up.
I was delighted to be included with this fabulous group of designers!
Just wait till you see what they have done!
Today’s projects have all been created using the Cupcake Holder (#656142).
I received the Cupcake Holder pre-cut on matboard from Eileen as they are not yet available in stores but you can check out the Scoreboard Line of dies out at Sizzix.
I painted the inside & outside of the cupcake holder with
Ann Butler Design’s Iridescent’s Sheer Copper
Then on the inside, I dry brushed with Ann Butler Design’s Iridescent’s in Onxy by Earth Safe Finishes
Let dry. Assemble cupcake using the Ultimate Glue by API Crafter’s Pick overlapping edges where holes line up,
glue three buttons over holes. Then I covered a 3″ Styrofoam Ball with fabric
using the Ultimate Glue by API Crafter’s Pick.
Now it is ready to be used or given as a great gift!
Be sure to check out the designer’s blogs below for more great ideas using the Cupcake Holder.
