Something Different Saturday...

Happy Saturday,

Today's offering is  a blast from the past, for me at least, as I made this last year ago and simply forgot to photograph it.  I was watching a tutorial on you tube on turning spellbinders dies into box lids and so thought I would have a go with Spellbinders Elegant labels 28 and this was the result.

I simply measured the die cut piece making a scored square in the centre.  This meant that the sides folded down to make a lid, sounds simple but check out YouTube for a more detailed tutorial.

A very simple looking box which I thought would be great for paper covered pencils (abother project awaiting completion!)



  1. Hola John
    Will have to try and find the video as I usually try trial and error with mine (usually more error!).
    That ribbon is a beautiful shade of blue.
    I eagerly await the pencils!
    Have a great day.
