Friday Die Day

Hello friends
Today I am featuring Row Houses.
This is one die template featuring 5 houses, it measures 4¾ x 1½“
and this is how it looks cut/embossed.
So this is nothing like a tag!
I've used one of the little battery tea lights - you can pick these up in 99p Stores/Poundland.
I've wrapped around a piece of cardstock and glued at the seam.
I've then adhered the row of houses and tied some twine - speedy!
A collection of these in different colours would look good as table decorations,
perhaps tip the edges with white to represent snow at Christmas?
Another idea - using up those scraps again...
Back each house with different card/paper.  Best to adhere this with Fine Tip Dispenser.
Works well with tissue paper too.
Obviously you can use the houses individually too.
This die is in stock and can be found here.
Wishing you all a great weekend, I'm hoping for lots of sunshine on Sunday please -
my day off!
Take care friends.

Good morning Christine,
Unusual die, I could see it has many uses, Christmas, new home etc, I love your ideas I can just imagine a few of them on a mantle piece all twinkling away, you are a genius!
I think you may be lucky with the weather, it's pretty bad today, expecting thunder storms, ( poor kittens will be terrified), tomorrow we are off to Essex to see my mum as it's her birthday,, love going, hate the journey, (m25)! Anyway the rain is supposed to dry up Saturday and be ok for Sunday, so you should be lucky, we have a football tournament Sunday, so hope they forecast was right! The last one I got soaked through to my underwear in the morning and sunburnt in the afternoon!
Must go and get busy crafting as won't get any done this weekend :(. !
Crafty hugs to all,

Morning Christine, This die is very interesting, and another one for my 'wish list'.
I'm praying for dry weather this morning, as it is our Church Walking Day today, it is very overcast at the moment and has been raining, but I'm just hoping it keeps off rain during the 'Walking Day' part of the day haha. I will pray for good weather for you on Sunday !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Morning Christine,
Not seen this die before, love what you have done with it. Don't think I would get much use from it myself, so don't think I would buy it.
Have a good weekend.

Maggie said...

Hello Christine. What a lovely die with so many uses. I bet it looks lovely on the tealight when the light shines through. How about backing them with some glittery acetate? New home card would be great. Hmm a must have I think. xxMargaretxx

Hi Christine. I love what you have done with this die. As always you have sparked off so many ideas especially for Christmas so I will have to put it on my wish list. I hope the weather is kind to you on Sunday.
Fingers crossed for a dry Walking Day for you Patricia : )

Great Die Christine, I hadn't seen that one. Enjoy your day off too.

Morning Christine, would look lovely as a xmas decoration with red and yellow tissue paper behind each house. Janice xx

Janice said...

Now there's a different way to decorate a tea light! Unusual little die for sure, and you've turned it into something different! 👍
