Sizzix Bigz XL Carry All Box

Sizzix Carry All
I feel really guilty because yesterday I was so negative about my Sizzix suitcase die, so today I thought I would redress the balance by saying how much I LOVE this die (Bigx XL Carry All 656279).
Inside of Sizzix Carry All
I only got it last week after Lisa (Craftfairy) told me how good it was. It’s brilliant!  It’s so easy to put together, despite there being 6 parts to it.  To make it a little bit stronger I have added a piece of card to the bottom.
I am going to use the plain wood and metallic effect boxes for Fathers Day with a few sweets in, but I can think of lots of other ideas on how to decorate them for different themes, especially Christmas.
Sizzix Carry All parts ready to be put together
I have cut out a whole pile of them, ready on my desk to put together, I wanted to try as many patterns of card as I could to see how the look of the box changes.
Most of the patterned card came for Paperbox at NEC Hobbycrafts in March.  I wish I had got more of the wood effect when I saw it.  The metal effect card  is from a card/paper stall on Penkridge Market (Staffs) and is ideal for masculine type boxes.
