It is Friday Die Day and I've made it a little bit different and festive.
For the second week running it is not a tag!
I may need to apply a cold towel to my forehead soon - what is going on!!?
Photos are a little shadowy - I think it forgot to get light this week, such dull rainy days.
I'm featuring Classic Scalloped Circles Large from the Nestabilities® range.
So often we return to our reliable 'Nesties' for shapes, mounts, apertures etc
but how about doing something a little bit more with them...here goes...
You receive 6 die templates with this set - this is how they look cut/embossed.
I have selected die template No. 3 (you always count from the middle outwards)
and cut/embossed an assortment of festive papers (Simple Stories - Handmade Holidays)
I'm still using up lots of scraps and this project is perfect for this.
With each die cut, fold in half. Use a bone folder to get a sharp edge.
Then fold into quarters.
You need 4 but I got carried away and made 8!
Apply a little adhesive down into the corners just to keep the folded flaps together.
Align them to create a flower design.
Use a die cut as a backing so you have a base to affix the 'quarters' to.
Once in place tweak/lift up the layers. I chose to ink the edges too.
Rummage in your button jars/boxes and select one or two, tie a bow with bakers twine.
I layered the buttons and stuck them in the middle with 3D Foam Squares.
I decided to use my flower on a jar, an empty one but I do intend to put some nice goodies in there!
A close up picture.
Simple to make, uses up scraps and buttons - do you have tons of buttons? I swear mine breed!
How is everyone doing with their Christmas shopping/plans?
I'm nearly there - I'm not sure how it all came together - maybe it was those little elves!
Have a wonderful Friday.
Take care friends.
