Petal Card Die Hanging Heart Box

Here's another of my projects I've been making using the Petal Card Die:  a Hanging Heart Box.  I love how it really takes on so much dimension by being treating to a pass through the Big Shot in an Embossing Folder, this time the Stampin' Up! Finial Press folder.  This box can be used for so many things, or simply as a home decoration when decorated with a theme.

Cut out two of the diecuts, then decorate the front diecut as desired.  Fold back two of the scallops, forming a heart.  Do this on both diecuts.  Cut a piece of cardstock 5" long and the desired width for your box; I cut mine 5" x 1.5".  Crease it in the center at 2.5", then put Sticky Strip heavy-duty double sided adhesive down both edges of this strip. The crease will go at the point of the heart and the scallop is adhered to the cardstock strip, forming the "box".

Apply a Jumbo Grommet with the Crop-A-Dile and tie a hanger of the luxurious Satin Ribbon through the grommets, knotting the ends. (Love that gorgeous ribbon!!)  You're done and it is really quite easy!

These can be decorated for any occasion or season and would be a lovely container for a gift or candy!

I love seeing what one can do with the various dies and the Big Shot. This tutorial shows the versatility of the Petal Die, a die I use very much as well.
Your tutorial is clear and concise - and easy to follow.
Guess what I'll be making with my craft group.

Very cute Margaret, that could hold a lot of great stuff. A very cute and practical idea.

This makes a pretty basket. I will tell you that my DD snagged the bookmark we made a the INK meeting yesterday as soon as I got into the car! I guess I'll have to make one for me, now. Good thing that die was in the package I recieved Friday! Thanks, Margaret for the great idea! Your blog is great!
