Friday Die Day

Hello friends
This Friday Die Day is Radiant Rectangles.  I received a request to feature these 
so I made a note of it (and I remembered to read it too!) 
Always feel free to email your requests for FDD.
You receive 7 die templates with this set and what a wonderful, intricate, beautiful set it is.
These are Majestic Element dies and you have so many options - use the border/label
dies alone or place the very pretty inset into the middle and more.
This how they look cut/embossed.
So what do we have here??  It's not a tag!
It is a little memo peg wallet.  I've used the largest die cut, scored to make the wallet.
And this is something different - I've used washi tape to cover some mini pegs.
Pretty flowery washi tape...I am stocking this in the shop.
Cutting and folding a further die cut to house the pegs.
Here is the inside of the wallet, I chose to place the darker pink die cut inside just for decoration
and stick down the peg holder.
A side view so you can see how the pegs are placed inside.
And the decorated front using the final die cuts and some ribbon.
The pegs inside can be used for keeping together notes, receipts, bills (yuk!) - a different gift idea.

Yesterday's card featured a stamp 'Home is the Heart of Life'
I think it comes from Creative Expressions but I will check once I'm back in the studio.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, take care friends.

Morning Christine,
What a lovely idea for the giving of a small gift, or those horrible voucher cards, the recipient would not know what they were receiving.

Wow, you are so patient - I couldn't cover the pegs with ANYTHING (would cheat and use plastic ones or even big office clips instead).
But it's a great idea and a lovely gift.
Thanks for sharing. You have a good weekend, too (even despite the snow).

Hi Christine,

Morning Christine what a brilliant way to use these gorgeous dies. Love how you covered the pegs with washi tape too! I think the only thing that would put me off these dies is the size, I always make 5 3/4 square cards and buy the envelopes in bulk and the largest of this is 6 x 4 so I wouldn't be able to use it! Have a fab weekend Susan x

Hi Christine. What a wonderful idea and covering pegs with washi tape, how patient are you?

Finally ordered a Grand Caliber despite my moaning about the postage. It arrived yesterday. It's unpacked but not played with yet so going to have a lovely crafty day today.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

I think it's a day indoors today as we have snow and very high winds so will just have to think of craft. Take care. x.

Janice said...

Good idea Chris, it makes me try and look at my dies a bit differently. Could you do demos on using flower dies? Eg: carnation creations by Donna Salazar. I have this die but need to be shown how to put together or are there several ways to construct? help!!

Dawn said...
