I love the Big Shot, and I was SO excited when I finally got one for myself! The first die I ordered was the Top Note Die, and it is still one of my favorite dies to use. I made this box a couple of years ago when I was a customer, at Judi Sparks’ class (go visit her blog-Judi’s Cuties-she is very talented!) and I fell in love with it! We didn’t have all the embossing folders at the time, so I remade it today using the dots and chevron folders. I also don’t have the stars framelits, so I had to use a retired star punch. I think it would be super cute with several different sizes of stars, tho!
We don’t have a box die, so I made a box using a strip of real red cardstock, cut at 11″ x 4 1/2″. On the 4 1/2″ side, score at 1 1/2″. On the 11″ side, score at 3″, 5 1/4″, 8 1/4″ and 10 1/2″. Cut off the strip that measures 1 1/2″ x 1/2″. Cut the other score lines on the 1 1/2″ side up to the score line. Fold into a box shape and secure with red sticky strip, tombow multi glue or the new fast fuse adhesive–if you use SNAIL, your box will fall apart–trust me when I tell you this!
Looks like I got a little overzealous with the dimentionals on my star, lol! Love those things!
