Surprise! YNS Dies!!


Yes, that's right - YNS now has its own custom dies available!! Our first die matches the large string of lights in the Light Up the Holidays set and it's so cool!! For all the details about the product, please visit the YNS Blog.

Many of the DT have made projects using the new die, so if you'd like a chance to win the fabulous prize pictured below (the stamp set and matching die), please visit and comment on all the participating blogs (the full list is on the YNS Blog).


For my project, I decided to continue on with my 3 Chocolate Challenge (in case you missed them, here are Part 1 and Part 2).


For this box, I simply took the bag from Part 2, and extended the ends to turn it from a bag into a box. Of course I did this in Make the Cut. After cutting, I printed the sentiment on both sides of the box, then folded it up and stuck in the 3 chocolates.

I stamped the holiday lights, colored them with Copics (I hope you get that I was trying to simulate white lights - I didn't just forget to color the bottoms!) and then die cut the string. Since I only needed 4 lights, I simply snipped the fifth light off then I attached the string with foam tape. I hope you like my project and TFL!
