Susan's Garden 3-D Book

 Today I have a project I think a lot of you are going to love.  It is perfect for gift giving for the holidays.  It is the new Susan's Garden 3-D Book die that can be used for inserting a gift card or be used for small gifts.  It is a die you will be able to use year round. 

Here is a picture of the Susan's Garden 3-D Book package along with the box I created.  It is one of the long Sizzix dies that you need to use the Extended Cutting Pads with to die cut it.  To create a very solid box, I recommend purchasing Craft-a-Board from Ellen Hutson, LLC.  This board is thin enough to be used with most diecut systems and dies, yet sturdy enough to produce beautiful projects.  I covered the Craft-a-Board with Design Paper. 
 To decorate my 3-D Book (box), I created a poinsettia using Susan's Garden Poinsettia Dies.  I also used the Susan's Garden Christmas Holly and Susan's Garden White Pine Pinecones dies for fillers under the poinsettia.  A sparkly white ribbon was used to close the book.

I always have certain people on my Christmas List that ask for gift cards.  This little 3-D Book creates a beautiful box I am sure the recipient will love more than receiving a gift card in a little folder or envelope.

I still don't have time to post tutorials on the new Susan's Garden products, but if you have any questions, please email me and I will help you.

Gorgeous E-Book Selma. Would it work ok in the Grand Calibur. Hugs Rita xxx

Rita I don't believe the Sizzix Bigz dies will go through the Spellbinder Grand Calibur machine. I think they are too thick.

I do have a big shot, so maybe that would do it. Thanks anyway Selma. Xxx said...

Once again, a beautiful creation. I need to get some pan pastels but don't know where to start. Maybe you could give me a list of at least ten of your go to colors to get me started.

This is gorgeous ! I am trying to make one of these mini book-box with the help of the instructions inside the die, but there are no papers sizes and the box doesn't stay closed unless you use a ribbon... Can you help me ? Thank you so much ! Cristiana
