Carry Me

I am again using my wonderful KNK Force to allow me to make something for the store where I work.  We have a new line of embroidery threads and want to do something special and eye catching to promote the sales.  I was asked to put together some mini collections.  Immediately I started thinking about what I could make with my Force to present these mini collection.  This is what I came up with.

I thought that four would be a good number of threads to start with and since we also sell them individually, the customers can purchase additional colors as they want.

Liquid scrapbooking glue

I’m thinking that Snoopy makes a great background for photos of things he has cut!!  (Snoopy is my Force).  I used inspiration from several cup carriers that I’ve seen on the internet and then did my own thing using both my KNK Studio and Make the Cut software to prepare the files for cutting.

I am delighted that the box parts cut beautifully on my Force.  The large ends of the handle piece (the one with 2 holes) are folded at 90 degrees and glued to the inside of the bottom of the box.  The spools of thread are placed in the box and then the insert (the one with 4 holes) is placed over the handle and the spools to hold them in place and to help keep them from falling out.  I will be putting labels on the sides of the box to describe what is inside and to dress them up a bit.
