|LOTS OF WAYS TO USE ONE CUTTING DIE|
Saturday, 18 July 2015
There are a lot of sites around that feature different ways to cut up and use punched shapes but not so much about dies, which are just as versatile, if not more so. I played with my lectern and bird set from Couture Creations and came up with a few ideas, and that was without even combining shapes....I must have a look at some of my other dies and see how else they can be used!

The first isn't strictly papercraft but it does involve a couple of things you might have in your craft room - the thin magnet sheet that comes with most dies, a die (in this case a Spellbinders dress stand), and a die-cutting machine in which to use it. (I used my trusty Cuttlebug).
I expected to be able to cut the shape with the die, but was pleasantly surprised to find that with the rubber embossing mat, the detail could be embossed onto the magnet! I made this over a year ago, and have been kind of waiting for the detail to disappear - it hasn't!
The second magnet is just some pretty Washi stuck onto a glass cabouchon, with a fairly heavy duty magnet (due to the weight of the glass) stuck onto the back.
I'm happy enough with both of them to allow them a spot on the side of the fridge!
