JAI #88

The challenge at Just Add Ink this week was "Just Add ...a Die Cut", so given how much I love my Big Shot.. I had to make something! One of my more recent additions is the Top Note die, and it is fabulous! There are so many things you can use it for.. one of the best being boxes. I'm starting to think about Christmassy things I can make.. to show at my Christmas workshop, and to give as gifts, and I think this box is pretty cute (yes, I know... I'm so very humble ;) ). All is needs are some yummy choccies or cookies inside, and it makes a lovely gift. It's sturdier than it looks, too, because I used some of the on-board sheets for the lid and base, then covered them in cardstock. The Big Shot had no trouble cutting them out because it's AWESOME!

Anyway, this will probably be the last thing I make until my darling husband returns... once the kids are in bed I don't think I'll be far behind :)
