Today I made a box using the Spellbinders Butterfly Magic Expandable die. I have used this die many times but only on cards, so I thought I should figure out another way to use it. After much measuring and endless throw aways this is what I came up with. Two pieces of card stock measuring 8 1/4 x 10 1/2 inches. Mark one sheet top and the other bottom. On the top sheet I scored on my lid side of my box maker board at 1 1/2 inches all around. I then centered the die on the card stock and ran it through my Grand Calibur to cut and a second time with the embossing mat in place. It came out beautifully and all I had to do was just cut away some of the bits on the edges. I also cut a piece of acetate slightly larger than the die and adhered that to the inside of the box lid. Folded all the score lines and cut the little squares at the corners. Folded them in and using wet glue stuck them down. I repeated the whole process with the second sheet only this time there was no die and the scoring was done on the bottom side of the box maker. Cut into the corners and stuck it all down with wet glue. Voila a lovely box to be embellished and used for a gift or some card sets.
I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial
