Gifts to Die For with Eileen Hull Designs

Hi everyone and welcome! All this month Eileen Hull's Inspiration Team have been sharing ideas for handmade gifts using her fabulous die designs from Sizzix. Make sure you check them out on Eileen's website. Since the Trinket Box and Card Box from the new Book Club release are perfect for creating gifts I set about altering them to match the Photo Frame previously shared HERE.

So you can see how easy the decorated die cuts are to assemble I've laid out the elements for the Trinket Box and Card Box below. The dies cut and score the pieces needed so it's simply a case of using strong glue to stick them together.

Quick Tutorial

The pieces were altered in the same way as the Photo Frame (tutorial HERE) to give them a heritage look.

And you'll see the products used to create the flowers and foliage on the image below; the dies come from the Festive Greens and Small Tattered Florals Thinlits sets, also from Sizzix. A couple of Quote Chips, Idea-ology Adornment Stars and Pen Nibs complete the trimmings.

Close Up Photos

Let's take a closer look at the finished Trinket Box; it's lid opens and the faux suede lining makes it perfect for holding heirloom jewellery. And the Card Box is compact yet sturdy so you can line several up together on your shelving to hold favourite thin die and stamp sets, handmade cards and more.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing these gift ideas; there's lots more from the rest of the team on Eileen's website this month.

Need extra inspiration? With over 65 more gifting ideas using Eileen's dies there's still time to get the latest e-book 'Gifts To Die For' from Bella Crafts Publishing whilst it's on a special price (click on the image below).
