Friday Die Day

Hello friends

Friday Die Days come around so quickly, this week an older die set but a really
useful favourite one of mine.
Charmed I'm Sure

There are a total of 10 dies in the set and these are the sizes:

Sunburst Circle: 1”
Heart Charm: 1⅛ x 1”
Star Charm: 1⅛ x 1⅛”
Triangle Charm: 1⅛ x 1⅛”
Charm Sizes Range From: 1 x ½” to 1⅝ x ½”

Here is how they look cut/embossed.
I cut/embossed a few extra in different colours.
Using a kraft tag I stamped a sentiment to the base, selected two pieces of twine and threaded on a mixture of the mini tags and secured at the back.
I then spaced them out a little more evenly, fixed them in place with 3D Foam Squares
and added tiny flowers and leaves.
I then took the tag outside for some brighter photos, positioned it on the edge of the birdbath....
gust of wind and it fell in!  So here is a slightly soggy tag!
I still thought I would share that photo as I'm sure we've all had 'craft-astrophes'
from time to time!
It's a great die set, either to be used individually or en masse like my tag!

Charmed I'm Sure is available on the website here - discounted too!

Take care friends - have a lovely weekend, I must get around to baking Elliott's cakes -
he has reminded me a few dozen times!

Hi Christine. What a lovely tag (even the soggy version : ) I would never have thought of using them all together like this, I love it. Have fun baking Elliotts cakes. Take care.

Chris said...

Ha ha, craft- astrophy, I like it and Yes, I have quite a few to say the least. Your tag is lovely and what a shame it got wet. Happy baking, I look forward to seeing the results.

Good morning Christine,
You are so inspirational and have a knack of making the most simple ideas look amazing, who would gave though a "Tag of Tags" could look so effective?!
What kind of cake are you going for?, you can't beat chocolate cake can you? Although I do love Lemon Drizzle and oh Coffee and Walnut! Well I have gone right off my piece of toast now and feel the need to bake!
Crafty hugs to all,
Sandra xxxxx

Good morning Christine, I like the tiny dies, perfect for one word/name. I can't see much on your page as the system is very slow, all these people shopping on line I expect.

Good morning Christine
A lovely tag today (even the slightly damp one - oops). I am never quite sure what to do with the little dies but this is a great idea.
My mouth is watering at the thought of cake. might have to make one this weekend.
Take care

Pretty tags Christine. I'd never have thought of using them as pretty bunting! Suggest a piece of wood or a tray on top of the birdbath, LOL.

ElizabethS said...

Hi Christine, OH NO... I love the way you described it too - "craft-astophe". It is still beautiful. What a lovely idea for the tag.
Elliott is not going to let you forget the baking is he? Hope you both enjoy.
