Welcome to my Blog and Day 1 of my Sizzix Week!! I am so excited about the next 7 Days! I really have some awesome projects lined up for you! I have had so much fun the last week & its a true pleasure to work with Sizzix products. The quality is second to none & if you have used any of there products you will already know that.
We are kicking of the week with this gorgeous Terrarium gift box. This would love gorgeous displayed in your house or it would make a beautiful gift for lots of different people. Its a very large box & i am thrilled with the end result.
|Sizzix Terrarium Gift Box|
The large dies i used to create the windows are just ones i had in my stash. You can you whatever you like though, squares, ovals or even just cut the windows with a craft knife & a ruler. You don't have to use dies. I placed acetate behind so it looks more like a real Terrarium. I added gold card in the bottom of the box for a nice refection & also around the windows.
The cool thing is when you lift the lid off, the little Terrarium comes out as it is attached to the the lid! If the box gets moved etc it swings & its just so adorable. You get all the flower dies & leaves etc with the die set. I will pop a picture of it below & if you click it you will be taken direct to the sizzix website if you want to purchase it or check it out,
