Who loves Bling??? Well today's fun project includes some fabulous bling and an amazing 3-d die. Eileen Hull has created an amazing Scoreboards XL Die by Sizzix! If you don't know what die I am talking about this is it!
I met Eileen Hull for the first time, it was at the SNAP conference in April of 2015. Midge and I met up with Eileen again at CHA 2016 where we taught a make and take at the Scotty trailer. Eileen is such a gem, she is super sweet and so full of talent we loved listening to her talk about her very own trailer Scotty. You can read all about Eileen and her awesome travels HERE. Eileen has always had a love for Chipboard and she created the amazing Scoreboard Dies, which is what this awesome trailer die is. Be sure to stop by Eileen's blog and read more about her and her awesome journey HERE. We love Eileen's dies and are thrilled and honored to receive this awesome package! What better time to pull out these cute dies and create awesome projects!
Here is the fun Trailer:
Let me show you how I created this fun little guy….
Be sure to take your Scoreboard and cut all of the pieces on the die. You will then want to cut out one more piece that looks like a fence (LOL) and one more tire.
I used a Clear Dazzling Diamond Bling sheet. I took the bling and placed it face down onto the die, and ran it through my Big Shot Machine. I cut three small pieces out of black bling and placed them onto the die with the silver bling. This is for the tires and the hitch. Be sure to repeat the process twice for the side of the trailer. (for the sides of the trailer I cut the bling off along the sides of the large pieces that make up the sides of the trailer)
Take the adhesive off of the bling and adhere to the scoreboard.
I then took my hot glue gun and adhered the trailer together. Then I added some fun embellishments. I used buttons on the trailer wheels and used Simple Stories Stickers to create the windows and the door, the awning, and the license plate. I took two straight pins to act as the awning poles. Scoring with my score board the awning so it would stand up. I also used another straight pin to adhere the cloud and the sun to, so it looked like the sun and a cloud above the trailer. Taking a black marker to the window and to door to give a little more dimension, and adding the “MADGE” license plate.
This trailer was so fun to make! Bling Out your own trailer! Here is one more look at this cute little guy!!!
Midge used the Flower Pocket Die, and created this cute pocket gift box. There are so many different possibilities that Midge had a hard time deciding which direction to go. The pocket box was a perfect fit for a gift that she was delivering.
Midge used a double sided piece of pattern paper, three rosettes, mini doily, and three feathers. Putting the box together is a snap! Eileen's dies come with not only the cut the scoring. Assembling this pocket box is a breeze.
