Eileen Hull's Chapter 4 Sizzix Dies Blog Hop - 3D Tea Cup and Post Box

Eileen Hull's Inspiration Team is so excited to share the news that Eileen has two new Chapter 4 Sizzix Dies being released soon - and we are joining in a blog hop and a FB Release Party to show you lots of ways to create with them!

The new dies are 3D Tea Cup and Post Box -and will be available in October. Here are the projects I made using each one.  I made mine for Christmas time!

I made a little holiday gift  using the 3D Tea Cup Die - perhaps for a hostess gift or a little present for a friend or loved one.   

The teacup has a front, back and sides to make it a box and measures 4 1/8" x 3 3/8" x 1 3/4" 

You can also just use the teacup front on a card, create a garland or use it as a book cover.

I filled a muslin bag with pine needles (purchased at a garden shop also available on Amazon)  and placed it in the teacup!  Not to drink (!) but to give that lovely pine smell when it's picked up and squeezed!

I used the new Post Box Die to make a little 'mail box' for a child (or an adult!) to put their note to Santa in.  

This cute box measures 3 1/4" x 4 3/8" x 1 1/8".

I used Velcro to hold the top flap closed.

Next week I'll be posting brief tutorials on how I put these two projects together (they were both very simple!), here on my blog, so I hope you'll check back -  but for now we'd love you to go on the blog hop!

Here are the links to the Design Team's blogs participating in the hop. 

 Leave a comment at each stop and at 12 noon EST on FB live at Eileen Hull Designs for a chance to win one of the new dies!  Two random comments will be chosen!

That box turned out sooo pretty. Can see a valentine letter box for a classroom coming up as well. Or how about giving this to older neighbours living alone including a voucher for driving them to the voting booth on election day?
