Swirls- 4 Dies DC0099 and a Basic Envelope Set- 11 Dies DC0244
The next item I made was made using 2 sets of dies. I made a home made box out of chipboard, and covered it with DP. I then used good old duct tape to hinge the lid on. I then covered the rest of the box with DP.I made dividers for the inside of the box out of chipboard as well, then covered it with DP. I hot glued the dividers down to the bottom of the box and the sides of the dividers. I painted wooden knobs for the feet of the box. I used metal hinges just for decoration. I glued my ribbon down and placed a button on the ribbon center. I glued a wooden knob on the lid to tie the ribbon around. I also used metal corners just for decoration as well. I then hot glued lace around the box, that I bought at the Jule Box. The black flowered decoration was also made by Jules from the Jule Bob.I then used the swirl dies. I cut them out with kraft colored card stock in my Vagabond machine. I applied them to the top of the box and to the sides of the box. These swirls are just beautiful and can be used for many projects. I then took the envelope dies set and made most of the items to go inside of the box. I made cards, envelopes, little baby sized envelopes with note cards.These I would probable set on someones desk or pack a I Love You note for inside someones lunch. Or they can be used as a gift tag. I then cut some colored copy paper for stationary. I used some smaller pieces of the die set to make an envelope for postage stamps, combined with different small dies to make envelope seals and ran them thru my xyron machine.. I added an ink pen. I also made a small adress and phone number booklet. I covered a small memo pad with DP. Printed the sentiment on the computor and cut it  out with a small  die. I also made an assortment of cards to go with the set.I added a bottle of card scents  that you apply lightly to your cards, let dry and boy do your cards smell good.
