My Favorite Die-Namics Storage!

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

Here is a little project I created to house my ever growing collection of Die-Namics! I thought it would be handy to have them all in one place and one of the Perfect Package Card Boxes from Taylored Expressions was the perfect storage solution.

For my Die-Namics storage box, I started by collecting some of my favorite things to incorporate:

1. A la Modes in Miss You A Latte
2. Togetherness papers by Cosmo Cricket
3. Polka Dots Embossing Folder
4. Felt
5. Wood buttons
6. Die-Namics Perfect Petal Trio
7. Die-Namics Framed Greeting Die and Stamp Set
8. Banner Day Alphabet
9. Lacey Circles Nestabilities
10. Copic Markers

I started by stamping the A la Modes Miss You A Latte in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored her with Copic Markers. I cut out and embossed the image with Circle Nestabilities which I layered over Soft Suede cut from Lacey Circle Nestabilities.

I created a layered flower with the Die-Namics Perfect Petal Trio and sewed a wood button to attach them together. I also used the Die-Namics Flower Trio and Leaf Trio to create the leaves. The flower was cut from My Favorite Felt - Banana Split (the pink) and the leaves were cut from My Favorite Felt - Beautiful Garden (the green).

For the front panel of my box, I used the Die-Namics Framed Greeting Die and Stamp Set, and when inking up the sentiment, "You are one of my favorite things", I only inked up the "favorite things" portion and using the Banner Day Alphabet, stamped "my" above the sentiment. The entire panel was cut with the die and I added another felt flower to make it pop.

All of the patterned paper was embossed with the Polka Dots Embossing Folder and I sewed each panel with my sewing machine.

You can see how nicely all of the Die-Namics fit in the box, even the border dies! This box just makes me happy!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
