It is time for the new release of Cheery Lynn Dies. You can see ALL the new dies over at Joan's Gardens. Today I decided to create a box to show off the pretty new "Cuties" flowers and the beautiful new "French Lattice Small Frame". Here is a list of all the products I used to create this box: Sizzix Cake Box die; Cheery Lynn dies: "Cuties 4" (B156); "French Pastry Doily" (DL102); "Italian Flourish" (DL103); "Tropical Flourish" (B127); Stacker Flowers (leaves) #1" (SF-1); "Olive Branch" (B147); "French Lattice Small Frame" (FRM132); "Mini Butterfly" (DL112).
I started out by creating the box with the Sizzix Cake Box die. This is a perfect little box to add some delicious chocolates for someone special or for a small gift. I used a spray glue to attach design paper to Tim Holtz Grunge Paper. This paper works really great for this box because there are little lines cut in the body of the box, to help it bend around into a circle, and the Grunge Paper is very sturdy but also very pliable. On top of the lid I attached the Cheery Lynn "Italian Flourish" to add a pretty background for the flowers. I love these new Cheery Lynn flowers created with the "Cuties 4" die. This die creates a larger flower than the other "Cuties" flower dies so is a great addition to this collection. To create this flower I conditioned the strip with tools from the Flower Tool Kit then glued two strips together, alternating the petals. Then you just roll it up and pull down each of the petals. A very quick and easy way to create a pretty flower. A variety of Cheery Lynn leaves and flourish were die cut and added under the flowers. For the sides of the box I die cut two of the new "French Lattice Small Frames" and trimmed them to fit the side (height) of the box. It took two of these frames to go around the box. I used liquid glue on the lattice to attach it to the sides of the box. The "French Pastry Doily" was die cut using the design paper used on the body of the box and attached to the bottom of the box.
You can purchase all the new Cheery Lynn dies and the Sizzix Cake Box die from Joan's Gardens.
