Sizzix Carry All

Bear in mind, if you like what you see in this post, check out my Candy Giveaway at the top of my blog and be in with a chance of getting your hands on these die cuts.

I was so happy when a parcel arrived this morning and inside were some Sizzix XL Dies - the Carry All Box and Popcorn Box. Haven't had much playing time though but have cut out a load of pieces ready for use. I'd seen the Carry All Die being used by Sarah and thought they looked great. The first I have to show is a Carry All.

I cut out a box in brown and have decorated it to go with a few challenges - Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, My Time To Craft, Simon Says, Creative Inspirations, Pink Elephant, Stamp Something and Allsorts. Who knew a simple project would hit so many themes.
The theme for SCSC was to make a last minute gift idea. I think, with the ease of use of these dies, that they match the theme well. My Time To Craft wanted a 'Yuletide Wishes' themed project.

With Allsorts, it was to make anything but a card. Creative Inspirations wanted a 'Christmas Gift'. And Simon Says was simply a 'Merry Christmas' theme. Pink Elephant had a Christmas/Winter theme. 'Holiday Somethings' is the challenge set by Stamp Something.

I have some plans for these dies too and will post a tutorial on how to put them together. The purpose will make sense soon enough too. Keep your eyes peeled.

Now, what to do with the popcorn die?????

Hi Paul, this is brilliant! what a great gift box, love the image too! Thank you so much for complimenting my advent calendar I really appreciate it. you asked if I used real matchboxes....I did but I wouldn't recommend it, if I make one again I will make my own boxes as the matchboxes weren't very uniform in size and it turned out a little lopsided so I had to pack areas with card. HTH Merry Christmas! Jane x
