Chapter 4 Release : Sizzix/Eileen Hull Designs

Hello and welcome to party day here on the teams with Eileen Hull as we roll out the new Chapter 4 dies.

Say hello to the new Geometric Box, Cutlery 3D Embossing Folder and an amazing Sunflower Die! Eileen will be sharing her dies during the release party later today, so I hope you can join us!

As always Eileen has given us some amazing dies to play with and I had great fun using the Geometric Box to create this tea caddy and the papers were embossed with the Cutlery 3D Embossing Folder.

You can see how beautifully the embossing folder creates such a 3D effect on the papers.

The geometric shape means the box sits flat and there are options for a lid or just as a stand alone box.

Always one to think of something different ..... the box requires two cuts of the geometric sides. But what if you fold just one piece ... 

..... to make this Christmas Box which would make a lovely addition to the table instead of crackers.

I punched holes in the sides for a ribbon tie and added some simple Christmas ephemera.

And now to the sunflower die and what a beauty of a sunflower it makes! I have only used four layers but it gives a gorgeous 3D flower shape just perfect for this Autumn Days wallhanging using 49 & Market paeprs.

I always have offcuts of matt board so it was easy to cut a 5" x 6" piece to make the hanging. 

Here is what Eileen says about her latest designs:

The Geometric Box is a different kind of design for me. I love the ease of assembly, the unique shape and and the possibility of expanding the box into larger containers! This is a ScoreBoards die so it may be cut from sturdy materials like matboard, chipboard, metal, leather and fabric. The finished box measures 4” h x 3” w x 4” d… or so… a fun feature of this die is that it adapts to how you shape it. You’ll see Watch my livestream videos to show how to expand the possibilities of this die.
Use the Geometric Box for storage- for pencils, silverware, flowers, or tools. The box may also be used as a gift container- imagine adding teabags, a pretty silver spoon and a bow as a get well gift!

The Sunflower is a Bigz L steel rule die- designed to cut and score a myriad of materials. The Sunflower is BIG- it measures about 4" across and comes with a leaf, three sizes of petals and a flower center! Stack layers of petals to make a traditional sunflower, or change colors and create a pink coneflower. The basic shape is there for you to create your own flowers! Make a stem for the flower using wire and your Twist and Style Tool. The coordinating Geometric Box die works perfectly as a vase.

I love the whimsical patterns of vintage cutlery and that's why I created this Silverware 3D embossing folder! The design is so detailed you can actually see a tiny bride and groom on the handle of a cake server.

I do hope you will join us in our party release today and also join in the Blog Hop, details of which can be found at Eileen Hull Designs.

Happy crafting!
