Well, the time is here!! I’m tickled to say that the new Spellbinders Die Templates we previewed in January are now shipping out! To celebrate I’ve created a couple of projects to share along with step-by-step tutorials so that when yours end up in your mailbox, you’ll have some ideas to go along with them. After my tutorial there will be a chance for you to win big prizes sponsored by Spellbinders be sure to look for the highlighted sweepstakes link at the bottom of my post. Don’t forget to leave a comment here too – if you like these projects I’ll know to create more along the same lines.
One of my favorite new die templates is S6-010 5 x 7 HEIRLOOM LEGACY which is another fabulous set in the Card Creator series! If you’re a frequent visitor you know how I love to make ensembles that include boxes, so first up is my first up is my Heirloom Gift Card and Heirloom Scarf Gift Box. I give lots of scarves as gifts so I wanted to create a matching ensemble to accommodate both the card and a box large enough for a scarf.

My next project is an Earring Stand. I used inexpensive wooden frames from Hobby Lobby and lined them with screen that I had spray painted white. They were made into a stand by adding a hinge at the top! I finished up by cutting the largest die from S6-010 5 x 7 HEIRLOOM LEGACY and spray painting it white as well. No project would be complete without pearls, bows and flower embellishments. A truly easy project and one made for a gift. Let me know if you want to see the tutorial to this one too!!
