Cinch Box



When the Cinch was shown on TV it was clearly a must have! Now I've owned a BIA for a couple of years or more but never actually put it to use, why then get another gadget? Sat on my hands for 24 hours but desire won out and a day or two later my lovely new toy arrived. Had to get it out of the box and try it at once well so simple and easy to use I like this.









Next thing was to decide what to make with it oh a box, to send the New Home swap below a box is going to be needed cannot just pop that into a nice padded envelope. Have some really thick card its almost 1/16" thick so nice and sturdy. cut 4 pieces and punched the holes no effort the guides work the punches work all nice and tidy. Then changed my mind and decided it have an acatate front, a little bit of lining up and a perfect match. Stamped the sides with Elusive image stamps and the little trailing Clarity stamp embossed in white and second time round in gold. Cut a base to fit the sides in and punched the holes to tie them all togather. Having tied it all up needed a top Cinch not required for this.




You'r right I did not use the wires not sure yet about replacements and once they are used I'll need more plus would not really work for the box. Give me time I'll get to it and a darn site quicker than I ever have with the BIA!!!!

Silly me this box fit the Gingersnap transpancy challenge this month. Their theme for June is wings and winged things and this challenge calls for acatate or transprancies in your entry, with an acatate front and lots of butterflies embossed on it guess this box is my second entry!
