Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop Week 1: Our house, Our treasures

The day is finally here! The Sizzix Triple Blog Hop starts today. A group of sixty (yes SIXTY!) all-star designers will create a new project, starting today and for seven weeks! Each of us will post the project on our own blog using that week's featured die. You'll be able to hop around and view all the creations.


The featured Die this week was the 3D House by Eileen Hull. It was so much fun playing with this die and finding different ideas for its design. I had a lot of ideas, but my favorite idea was to create a treasure box from the house. Instead of adhering the roof to the house, I've added a hinge to create the cover of the box. On the other end I've attached a Velcro so the roof could be closed.


If you want to try it yourself here is the materials list:
