Hi, everyone! I'm sure by now that ya'all have seen the gorgeous samples by my Sistah Sticks (ODBD Design Team Sisters), featuring the new ODBD Custom Surprise Box Die? If not, you can see them in the ODBD Gallery HERE! Anyhoo.....you know me, I'm always trying to "think outside of the box" (pun intended!) when it comes to new and different ways to use ODBD's dies and stamp sets. This is one of those times. If you look at the large die which cuts out the box and flaps, picture the box upside down with the flaps (trimmed down and) folded in to make an enclosed box. I used cardboard so that it would be sturdy for the coffee station at work.
Once the box was glued together, it was decorated with a pattern from the ODBD Vintage Ephemera Paper Collection, along with the ODBD Custom Bitty Borders Dies, ODBD Custom Circles and Pierced Circles Dies. The fun sentiment is from 'I Love Coffee'.
This little box, while a bit short for the stir sticks, will be sturdy enough not to get knocked over, unlike the paper cup which is being used presently.
Here is a close-up view of the sentiment panel......I agree with this statement 100%!!!!!!
Next time I play with the Surprise Box Die, I'm going to create some bookmarks with the two long sections. One day I will make an actual Surprise Box, but I'm not sure yet when that will be....hopefully soon since I haven't tried it yet!
Thanks for visiting!
