Here is a fun way to add some dimension and interest to gifts, frames and cork boards.
I can’t resist playing with dictionary pages. I have a die cut machine, Sizzix Big Kick, and it makes cutting shapes so easy. This isn’t an ad for Sizzix, but with Joann’s 40 percent off a regular price item and their 25 percent off your entire purchase, you can pick the machine up for under $50.00, and I use it often. It does die cuts and also embosses, wait until you see my soda can that I embossed with it!!
I made some fans, cut out some petals and circles and added some buttons.
I tried a tinting technique I have been reading about, I think it will look better on my next try 🙂
I can’t wait to glue them on tacks and add them to my corkboard. Next time you see a worn out book and want to throw it away, or that loose button that you don’t remember what it went to, save it and decorate a package with it 🙂
