I call it a "Vintage Jewelry Box", but the uses are many--a desktop organizer, recipe box, card storage, hair accessories, sewing or stitching box, gardening notes and seed packs, the list goes on. This class is loaded with techniques and tips for working with these versatile dimensional Scoreboards dies, Blends inks and new embossing powders! In class, we will use Blends inks to add your own color and style to the Treasure Box. Using the new Sizzix Notebook die, we will create three books to go inside the Treasure Box, from three different materials: leather, metal and fabric. You will learn so many techniques as each of these materials have different qualities and special tips. You will also learn three unique ways to bind the notebook.
