Big Ideas With Little B Products

The products from Little B are completely new to me.  The package I received from the company contained a number of interesting products.  Many of the items were specific for Autumn so the little project I created used several of the Washi Tapes.  I look forward to using the other items in future projects.

I made a special little container for a couple of sweet little "Trick or Treater's".  To create them I used my Sizzix Big Shot along with Eileen Hull's Train Case die.  I covered the scoreboard with the tapes. The tape was put on the board carefully to cut the top pieces of the case with the zig-zag designed tape.  Others were put in place for the bottom pieces.  Cut two of each for the train case.  Layer decorative paper and a thin sheet of black Makin's Clay with double-sided adhesive.  NOTE: Pieces can be cut individually from paper and clay and then glued together if desired.   Die-cut two hinges and the handle from the prepared sheet.  The front latch is cut from another piece of textured Makin's Clay.

Assemble the train case using double-sided adhesive tape or any glue that would work best with the materials used for the train case.

Glue decorative cording of your choice around the edges of the case top and bottom (refer to photo).

Pierce holes to insert paper brads for the hinges and latch.  Glue the handle in place on the lid of the case.  Embellish as desired to finish the look.

You rocked this project and it is so perfect for Halloween because every "witch" needs to have her cell phone and lipstick and what better to carry them in then this beautiful purse! OMG this is so cute!!

    1. So glad to read your comment! This die-cut train case can hold various small items and it turns out looking good with whatever material you could use. It's probably smaller than you think!
