Box with Scallop Flap Scoreboard Die
2" scallop circle die
I bought this scoreboard die months ago thinking I would use it all the time, but this is the first time! It's a great size, idealt for storing a pack of gum, or breath mints, or a travel pack of tissues, or band-aids, or for discreetly storing feminine products. You could put a mini sewing kit in there, it's big enough to hold an ATC, and of course it's the perfect size for gift cards, it's shameful that I haven't made anything with this die yet!
My middle daughter will be 19 in a few days (July is a busy month for me with 4 birthdays in total). I knew that Cuddly Buddly had an awesome range of digi stamps that use the word "ewe" instead of "you" so when I found the Religious Christmas Herd paper it was a match made in heaven!
The scoreboard dies are intended to cut and score quite thick materials. If you run regular paper through it will cut it, but it's not thick enough to have the score lines imprinted (you can buy a score mat separately). I used 600gsm card, which is about as thick as you can get without getting into foamcore. Using spray adhesive I attached the sheep paper to one side and then ran it through and cut out the die. The edges and inside have all been inked with Antique Linen distress ink, which matches the paper beautifully. It's then a simple matter to fold along the scored lines and glue the edges to form the envelope shape.
I have used a 1/8" hole punch in the top through which I have strung some black cord so it looks like a mini purse. A velcro dot under the flap and on the front edge of the purse ensures it will stay closed. A 1/4" band of black card has been wrapped around the top of the purse, which acts as the base for the digi and embellishments. This can be removed, if desired, without damaging the purse. Finish with a bow, a charm and the "ewe" digi of your choice!
