This is the latest Designer's Choice die set from Tonic Studios! It's called the Chai Caddy Box die set :) 

These are my affiliate links to the set, if you're interested

You can see how to make the cadies on the right and left (in the photo above) in my video here 

and the instructions for making the caddy in the centre are below :)

How to make the Caddy!

In this die set you'll find all you need to make several variations of a beautiful chai caddy or a little gift box. Some of the dies can even be used to create panels for cards etc.
There is an instruction sheet included in the folder.

To create the box in the photo you will need the following Tonic products
Craft Perfect Jet Black Texture Weave Card
Craft Perfect Welsh Gold Glitter Card
Gloss White Nuvo Crystal Drops
Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive
Craft Tacky Glue

How to Make it - 

1. Die cut 2 black hexagons, 2 black triangles and 3 black side panels

2. Burnish the score lines on the side panels. Using the 2 dies shown above, die cut 6 gold glitter card panels.

3. Glue the decorative glitter card panels to the black panels.

4. Attach the side panels to each other with hi tack tape and then attach the tabs at the bottoms of the panels to the hexagon with the same tape.

5. Using the larger hexagon die and the triangle die shown in the photo together, die cut 2 black shapes.

6. Glue these on together and glue to the top of the caddy.

7. Tape the hexagon die and the inner die shown together and die cut three shapes from black card and one from gold glitter card. Keep the inner circle shapes.

8. Glue these together with the glitter card on top and glue to the top of the caddy.

9. Glue the black circles from the insides of the hexagons together with the glitter card on top. Die cut 4 black small circles and 2 black triangles. Glue the small circles together and then glue them under the large circles. Glue the 2 triangles together and then glue them underneath the small circles

10. Use the 2 dies shown with black card to create 3 decorative pieces. NB Die cut these pieces separately. Glue onto the glitter circle

11. Fold the 2 small glitter card circles in half and glue the top halves together. Glue the bottom parts to the centre of the lid.

12. Add Crystal Drops into the areas shown on the gold glitter card panels on the sides.

I have made 2 more caddies with this die set and you can see them in my video here –
