The Big Shot Die Cutting Machine
Can you guess what our theme is this month? Yep, the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. I absolutely love this machine and all the wonderful things that can be done with it. You can use Sizzix dies in as well as many other competitor's dies. It cuts paper, material, wood, and the list goes on.
For my project today, I made a basket out of the Fancy Favor Bigz XL Die. It makes the cutest little bag or in my case a basket. It is great to use as a party favor for a kid's party, a wedding shower, a baby shower or even a family dinner like Thanksgiving!
As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator I was able to place a pre-order from the New 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog. Can you tell what I ordered? Hint: two (2) stamp sets -- Delicate Doilies and Four Frames. Aren't they great?
Perfect Plum (6x12 and 5/8x9)
Whisper White (5-1/2x4-1/2)
Pear Pizazz (small piece)
Stamp Sets: Delicate Doilies and Four Frames
Stamp Pad(s): Perflect Plum
Accessories: Snail Adhesive, Basic Pearls, Stampin' Dimensionals, Sticky Tape, Fancy Favor XL Bigz Die,
and the Decorative Label Punch
This cute little basket easily holds four 3"x3" cards with envelopes. I just had to make a few to go with it.
You can't really tell by this picture, but I used Basic Pearls and Basic Rhinestones. Following are close-ups of the cards.
Okay, I know, you are wondering where the Basic Pearls are. Right? Well, I put one in the center of the Perfect Plum circle and eight pearls in each flower around the center. If you look REALLY hard, you can see them.
Yeah, you can see the Basic Rhinestones on this one.
I hope you have enjoyed the projects I made for you today. And, as you leave my blog, please hop on over to the fantastic blog of Kym Schwinkendorf, Artful Imagination.
