I got my SU Holiday Mini catalog pre-order goods yesterday, and may I just say SQUEEEE! *ahem* We aren't allowed to show you any actual products, but we CAN show you things we've made with the new products. Want a sneak peek?
One of the new offerings is a scoring tool. OMG, you know how I don't do 3D stuff (no room, etc.)? Well, let me tell you, this thing is DA BOMB! Lookie what I just made:
It's a 2-5-7-10 box, which is just like a 2-4-6-8 box, only a little bigger. I made this out of some new DSP, and it's gorgeous, as you can see. (And I don't "do" Christmas, remember?) Here's a few details:
After I scored the lines, I used the SU Scallop Trim Border punch along the top edge, then I trimmed the scallops off the flap that would go inside:
I tested it, and yeah, they don't line up very well, so save yourself the hassle.
Next, I punched a window out of the front panel and lined it with a piece of acetate:
I'd make the acetate piece a little bigger next time so it's easier to tape without leaving residue behind. Mine is 2" square for this Curly Label punch; I'd make it 2 1/4" next time.
Here's the assembled box with some ribbon:
That's some new quilted ribbon. Sooo nice to work with! Then I went all crazy-like and decided to add one of the new buttons, too:
So, once again, here's the finished project:
Nice, huh? Think Halloween papers for giving candy to co-workers. Uh-huh. Or pretty Fall papers for Thanksgiving place settings. Yep. All sorts of possibilities. Oh, and for any of my customers who are reading this: there's a Buy 3, Get 1 Free DSP special this month. How convenient, I KNOW!
Okay, I think I'll go play some more. Thanks for stopping by!
