Something Different Saturday

Todays something different is something that has been floating round my head since I first saw this die.  I am beginning to get a name for box's but I just couldn't resist this one....

The box is created with the Spellbinders Just 'swingin die cut in white 200gsm card.  I have added a tutorial to the tutorials page here.

I have added all sizes etc to the tutorial however this was cut with two sheets of card. 

Just peeking out in the picture is a hanging ornament I made using a Marianne die.  The next picture shows this far better.  The ornament is hanging in the middle of the box, Enjoy...



  1. Wow John, What a fantastic idea, it's beautiful. I haven't got these particular dies but may try a different combination with the dies that I have got. Thanks for the brilliant inspiration.

    1. Hi Elaine, To be honest this only took a couple of hours if that although it looks complicated its really quite simple. Calculating the sizes is the most time consuming the ornaments are really quick!
