Big Shot Box Project #1

Hi Stampers. . .

First I wanted to remind you that card clubs start NEXT WEEK! I still need about 3 more ladies to join each night for the clubs to work. If you sign up and get a friend to join you both will receive a free package of card stock ($5.50 value). Club letters will go out soon, so please watch you mail. For more information click HERE.

OK . . on to stamping. As I mention yesterday Rocky and Blake was out of the house on Saturday so I had time to stamp. Funny thing is I made 5 projects and 1 card and only stamped on the card. With everything else I just used my Big Shot.

On the Stampin' Up! website they share some Big Shot projects that were shared by a demo on the incentive trip. What she did was created Boxes using the Big Shot and dies for many occasions. The directions were online, so I just knew I wanted to give them a try. So . . . for the next 4 days I'm gonna show you a box each day. If you would like to see any of these in person, just let me know. It's often hard to get a good picture that does the project justice.

With Mother's Day being yesterday I just knew which one I wanted to show you first. It's a "flower pot". I used the Box #2 Bigz XL Die, Top Note Bigz Die, Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die and Birds & Blooms Sizzlits Dies to create this cute project.

This project would have made a perfect May Day gift, Mother's Day gift or Teacher's gift. You can't see it in the picture, but the Box #2 die is attached behind the flowers. Perfect place to "hide" a cello bag full of candy!

**Updated to add a photo of the box!**

Thanks for stopping by today and make sure to check back tomorrow for Big Shot Box Project #2.

All 4 of the Big Shot boxes are absolutely adorable!! Who would want to give them away after all that hard work? Then again, to see the joy and appreciation on your recipients face after telling them you MADE that would be so worth it! Maybe I'll pick one up after the next tax break :)
