Hello friends! Today I am sharing an easy way customize just about anything to match your home with the Sizzix eclips2 DIY Electronic Cutter – I am writing this post as a design team member for Sizzix and the opinions expressed here are 100% my own. I recently found an affordable set of cork covered boxes at a local craft store but they did not match my decor at all. With back to school around the corner, the boxes evoked “school” when I wanted them to say “chic awesome living room”. With the Sizzix eclips2 DIY Electronic Cutter you can create custom vinyl decals to decorate anything to match your decor. Since my living room has lots of gold accents in it, I decided to use gold vinyl to customize these boxes, cutting the vinyl into modern looking triangles with the Sizzix eclips2 DIY Electronic Cutter.
Using shapes from the Library or from the Sizzix eShape store, the possibilities are endless as far as finding shapes and designs to customize a project. The eCal software allows you to arrange, resize, and duplicate the shapes to any size you need.
Once your design is complete, cut it out of a variety of materials including vinyl and paper, using the Sizzix eclips2 DIY Electronic Cutter. Here's how I used the Sizzix eclips2 DIY Electronic Cutter to create modern looking decorative boxes from cork storage boxes:
I love the way the shine of the vinyl contrasts the matte, textured look of the cork boxes. The addition of the vinyl really elevates the look of the boxes and no one needs to know I got the set for under $10. Okay, maybe you know that I got them for $10! Truly you can customize anything in your home to look super chic with Sizzix eclips2 DIY Electronic Cutter. PIN the image below to keep it handy on Pinterest!

Cute idea! I’ve never seen cork covered boxes. Very unique! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
ahhh, the wonders of vinyl, and you really don’t need a machine for this one! thanks for sharing on craft schooling Sunday!
These are so unique. I have seen a thin cork in local craft stores that could easily be cut and placed over a shoe box. Great idea!
