Curvy Keepsake…

You’ve surely seen so many versions of this adorable box die.  It’s everywhere on the internet, Pinterest and blogs.  So I just had to had my two cents worth…

Here’s one I’ve made and then made up kits so when the g’kids get here they can make one for each place setting at the Thanksgiving table.  They will love making these…

Yep, little Tom Turkey.  Some of the feathers were left over from the Paper Pumpkin this month so I decided to include them in this project.  The kids are going to love making these…they go together in a snap!

Here’s one for the Christmas tree I spotlighted last week (I’m still adding decorations to that little tree)…

Elegant, yes?  And it looks so pretty with all the blues, greens and silver on the tree.  And…one more ornament…

Another ornament that lights up and it’s oh so pretty with the White embossing and pearls.

Honestly, I think this little die will come in handy for so many different occasions that it is well worth its price.  I’m already looking forward to my creations the g’kids will make.

Do you need the Stuff ‘N Digits?…here you go…

Stuff:

  • Paper:  This little box takes a whole sheet of 8 1/2 x 11.  I just cut it in half and cut both pieces at the same time.
  • Ink:  Of course it depends on what you are making.  The only ink I used on these three was VersaMark with White Embossing Powder on the lighted one.
  • Stamps:  On the lighted one I used Letterpress Winter for the little wreath
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Use double stick tape on the bottom of the box.  Use any embellishment that fits your occasion.  The sky is the limit!

Digits:

  • There really aren’t any specific digits.  I did use two  1 1/4″ punched  circles to “sandwich” the feathers before attaching to the box.

This die box can be addictive.  I had to stop myself from making more critters, gift boxes, favors, etc.  You see what I mean?

If you have been inspired today to create something of your own, my job here is done…
