I've enjoyed using my Copic colors to fill one of the recently released Elisabeth Bell rubberstamp images for Sweet Pea Stamps named Music Box. Here's a close up view of my image.
I used a Spellbinders scalloped rectangle to frame her then adhered her to the top of my die cut match box. Sizzix makes several great project dies for use with their Big Shot Pro machine. Their Match Box die cuts two parts: the outside wrap and the inside slider. I quickly ran a piece of Quick Quotes Oh Lovely double-sided paper through the die cut system and within minutes my match box base was ready for embellishing. I've attached a Tim Holtz idea-ology Hitch Fastener to each side of the slider piece to act as drawer openers. I included some jewelry box fluff inside to create a nice bed for my gift to lie in. Here's a view of how my match box slides open:
This finished Sizzix Big Shot Pro Match Box is 3 5/8" x 5 1/4" x 1 1/8". The insert slides out easily making it a nice container for including small gift items.
A bit of Prima lace and rose ribbon with some die cut Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzlits Festive Greenery flourishes borders my image. A touch of Want2Scrap's Finesse Swirls in BrownR adds a sparkly edge. A few Bo Bunny jewels in Timepiece act as berries to the three holly leaves also cut from the Festive Greenery die.
Here's a view of my completed gift project using the Sizzix Big Shot Pro Match Box die to showcase my Elisabeth Bell Sweet Pea Stamps Music Box image:
I have a small card holding Swarovski-like multi-colored crystals on a bracelet with matching earrings that will fit beautifully inside of this gift box.
