Hero Arts Home Decorating Challenge

I like to do the challenges on the Hero Arts Blog. Last week, the theme was home decorating. I got this new Sizzix die to use with my new Stampin Up Big Shot. (By the way if anyone who reads this is interested in buying my Turquoise and Black Big Shot, email me (louisecharlton@videotron.ca).

So my new die is a cube. I cut the cube out of thin chipboard. I also cut it out of Christmas Decorative paper. I covered the chipboard with it. I stamped the circles with Hero Arts Christmas stamps. I stamped the Hero Arts border on a piece of maroon CS. I scalloped the bottom edge and applied it all around the cube. When I assembled the box, I had to leave the top open to be able to put a hole in the cover for the ribbon, but then it is difficult to glue shut. The tabs don’t stay straight. I will have to test this and find a better way to close the box.

Anyway here is my cube! Hoping to do a few of these with the letters N O E L . I will definetely play with this again!

(The white dots are Stickles pearl).


Stamps: Hero Arts swirls; Hero Arts Christmas wishes.
Papers and CS: Prism CS, SU CS (Kiwi kiss); Around the Block Decorative Papers (a few years old)
Inks: Palette Black ink; Stickles pearl paint.
Ribbon: unknown (from my stash)
Tools: Sizzix Cube die; SU scallop border punch, SU Circle scallop and circle punches; Marvy Scallop punch.
