International Ambassadors Informal Blog Hop

Hi Everybody,

Time for another informal blog hop with some of the International Ambassadors and another chance for you to see each of us as you go around the world.  We decided for our theme this month to us some of the beautiful Boxes  that have been released by Spellbinders in the past few months
For mine I chose to use the Steel Rule SR-48 Keeping Tabs to make this simple little box, and give you some idea of how you can dress it up. You will need a die cutting machine that will take the deeper format but with these dies you can cut several layers in one pass. 
Ideal if you are making lots of them as Wedding Favor Boxes

I have used the Platinum Die Cutting Machine and some patterned card to show you how it looks once cut and all you need to do is fill it with goodies and then curl it up into the closures.

I had some fun turning one of them into a Rabbit with big googly eyes and stand up ears..

The other has flowers that blend with the scheme and it would be lovely to hold that special gift.

I hope you will take the time to visit my talented friends and see what delights  they have to show you this month.

I used to have a die cutter that wouldn't take them but now I have the cut n boss I think I can start looking around at these bigger dies, they all look so cool :)
