What a fun project – the twist box created with Sizzix’s die by Karen Burniston can be decorated so many ways. I decided to create a colorful ornament that would also make a fun addition to a birthday card.
This was easy to make with a few embellishment items.
Sizzix Twist Cube Die
DCWV black card stock
Large 1 1/4″ button
Assorted multi-color buttons
Rat tail cording – 2 pieces 14″
Beacon Paper Tac glue
Fabric – 1-1/2″ x 24″ strip
1. Cut and make box from black heavyweight paper.
2. Thread one piece of cording through 2 holes on the large button so that the ends of the cords are on the back side of the button. Thread the other piece of cording through the remaining 2 holes. Pull ends so that they are even and insert through hole in the top of the box by 1/2″. Glue the ends to the top inside of the box.
3. Sew a gathering stitch on one long edge of the fabric 1/4″ from edge. Cut to fringe on the opposite side edge. Do not cut through the stitches. Pull gathers to 6″ and tie off.
4. Wrap the gathered edge on the top of the box around the opening with the cords. Glue as you wrap. After the glue dries thoroughly, slide the button down the cording to sit on top of the fringe. Tie an overhand knot with the cord on top of the button.
5. Glue 2 rows of rick rack around the box, 1/2″ from the top and bottom edges. Glue buttons around box.
