The Window Box Thinlits Die from Stampin’ Up! is a new product that I have been playing with. Here’s what I like about it so far…
- You can create the box with a single sheet of 8 1/2 X 11 paper
- The size is not too big and not too small.
- The hexagon shape is unique and fun
- The variety of decorative dies that come in this set allow me to embellish it for any occasion
We worked with this box in a class earlier this week where we created birthday themed items. Making the first box is probably the hardest, but it really is not difficult at all to put together. This is the box we made in our class…
Notice the cute birthday candles on the side panel? Those are so easy to create with the dies that come in this set. The top piece was also cut out with these detailed thinlits. Even the banner was created using a special thinlit from this set that ‘flags’ the ends of the paper and creates score lines to ‘pop’ your banner up.
Valentine Window Box
Today I worked on a box with a Valentine theme. I used some of my Falling In Love Designer Series Paper to decorate the top of it and added hearts on the sides using one of the coordinating decorative framelits. It looks like a lot of work, but really didn’t take that long to pull together.
Here’s a look at the top of the box where I used the Falling In Love Designer Series Paper. This 12 X12 paper has such soft colors and elegant prints!
And here’s the top after it is all decorated…
That cute tag is another one of the thinlits that comes with this set of dies. I used some silver metallic thread to attach it to the pink satin ribbon. The sentiment was stamped from the Window Shopping stamp set that coordinates with the Window Box Thinlits Dies. Here’s one more look at this box…
From this view you can see how pretty that heart thinlits die really is. Once it was all finished I decided that some tiny pearls would be the perfect finishing touch for this elegant little box. I am so pleased with how it turned out!
