Friday Die Day

Hello friends

Did I mention things are a little out of sync at the moment?
That may be a little understatement, apologies if blog posts are little erratic only
I'm doing a bit of rushing around - my poor Dad had an accident
on his bicycle and is currently in hospital, he should be home soon.

Today's Friday Die Day is a revisit to Radiant Rectangles but this idea works
perfectly with Nobel Rectangles.

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 is 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 three times to make a wallet.
And this is something different - I've used washi tape to cover some mini pegs.
I am stocking a new pretty design of washi tape in the shop here.
Use a further die cut folded 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, a brad and some ribbon.
The pegs inside can be used for keeping together notes, receipts or maybe...
bills (yuk!).

Take care friends, have a lovely weekend.

Morning Christine
Great FDD today, super idea. I really like your decorated pegs too. I've seen a lot of different ideas on Pinterest for using washi tape, even decorating pencils!
Hope your Dad is soon out of hospital and on the mend.

So sorry to hear that your dad is in hospital. Hope he recovers quickly and is back home soon.
That's a nifty little memo wallet for your FDD.

Love what you have done with that die set Christine. I have one very similar but I don't think it's the same, I would have to check. I love it when you come up with older dies and stimulate us to dig them out again.

Sorry to hear about Dad, I do hope he's back home and making a good recovery soon. My daughter was in a car accident on Tuesday. Both carss and rightoffs, but all 6 people involved walked out with minimal scratches etc. Phew, it was such a relief.

Bejay Roles said...

Hi Christine, now that's what I call one VERY useful die. There are so many different things you can do with the seven components of the set. Best wishes to your dad and I hope he recovers from his accident really fast. x

Great idea Christine, like the idea to decorate the pegs with washi tape, not the idea to peg bills together ha ha.
All good wishes to your Dad for a speedy recovery.
Have a good weekend yourselves.
Love carolyn
