Thank you Spellbinders Paper Arts for sponsoring this contest!

Today I'm pleased to share with you two projects that I created with S4-357 Spiral Blossom Three and Spellbinders M-Bossabilities™ folder EL-005 Splendid.
Spellbinders Products:  GC-001 Grand Calibur Machine, GC-003 Grand Raspberry Plate, M-Bossabilities folder EL-005 Splendid and Die Template S4-357 Spiral Blossom Three. See below for a full list of supplies.

Here are the new releases that I introduced to you today:

Sku Name S4-357 Spiral Blossom Three
MSRP: $19.99

PRODUCT SIZES:
Flower: 4 3/8"
Sku Name EL-005 Splendid
MSRP: $9.99

PRODUCT SIZES:
5 x 7"

I am so excited to feature the new and innovative Spellbinders M-Bossabilities folders! These are unique reversible folders, with 2 separate yet coordinated embossing patterns for twice the  designs and double the value! The folders simply flip over, so easy to use! There are 20 new folders, each with 2 designs, and they come in 2 sizes, 5 x 7” and 4 ¼ x 5 ½” for all your paper crafting needs!
Watch this introductory video!

See how to use the new Spellbinders M-Bossabilities in this video!

So are you excited about M-Bossabilities now? Want to see how I used M-Bossabilities™ folder EL-005 Splendid on my project? 
1) Remove hardware and handle from box.
2) Cut kraft cardstock to fit sides of box (sizes will vary depending of size of box you select). Cut enough to cover only the front, back and two sides of your box.

3) Emboss cardstock pieces in the Spellbinders Grand Calibur machine using EL-005 Splendid embossing folder. Create a sandwich with A-Base Plate, folder with cardstock inside, and Grand Raspberry Plate.


4) Adhere cardstock to box. Ink face and edges with Distress Ink.

5) Apply a thin layer of MicroGlaze to surface of box. Buff with rag to remove excess glaze. Allow box to dry and buff again to polish box.

6) Cut old book pages with S4-357 Spiral Blossom Three. To create this box, I cut 24 flower dies; however the number of flowers will vary depending on the size of box being embellished and how tight flowers are made. Tip: cut multiple sheets at one time.

7) To create the spiral flower, roll the outside end of die cut around a thin stick … here I used a paintbrush.

8) Add hot glue to the base of the flower die and allow rolled flower to unwind into the adhesive.

9) Paint flowers.

10) Adhere flowers to the top of the box. Re-attach hardware and handle. Tie on bow and tac in place with hot glue.


You can also create elegant cards using these two new releases. Here is one that I made by stacking three felt flowers cut with S4-357 Spiral Blossom Three over ribbon that is tied onto cardstock that is embossed with EL-005 Splendid embossing folder. Note: Notice how you can incorporate patterns from both sides of the M-Bossabilities folder into your project.

Spellbinders Products:  GC-001 Grand Calibur MachineGC-003 Grand Raspberry Plate, M-Bossabilities folder EL-005 Splendid and Die Template S4-357 Spiral Blossom Three, S4-328 Foliage, and S5-028 Nested Pennants. See below for a full list of supplies.
