This Sizzix Blog Hop is totally spectacular! Are you ready for some really rad projects? Hop with us today to check out who has been making what with Marisa Pawelko's line of unique and snazzy Sizzix dies from The Modern Surrealist collection! Her designs will put a little sparkle and extra pizzazz into your day. With the versatile Sizzix Originals dies and the Sizzix SophistiCut Machine you can make fun and easy jewelry, add some perk to your fashion, brighten up your space with a little lively décor- and whatever other exuberant crafts you can imagine up!
For my project, I thought, sure the Fashion Cuff die is perfect for making jewelry but what ELSE can I make? My daughter is getting married in less than 3 weeks so I have been in full wedding decor mode for a few weeks now. So, the first thing that came to mind was a candle wrap!
I looking like a handbag. Seriously, how cute is that!?
Simply open the sides and there you have it--a die cut machine!
Next, layer together the plates, Fashion Cuff die and cardstock and run through the machine.
You then have this great rounded corner shape with holes in each end.
Next add your desired stickers, die-cuts, stamps etc.
Fold end over end and secure in place with mini brads.
Slip it over a small candle, add some twine and it's done!! Cute and easy. You can easily adapt this idea to any season. Spell out Merry Christmas, your name, Happy Birthday or anything you want to celebrate.
Want to add a little fun to your decor? Follow the same process and pair the fashion cuff with one of the coordinating dies such as this zebra print for a totally rad decor addition!
Another great thing about this project is that you can get help from kids of all ages because the machine is easy to use and the shapes are perfect every time. No measuring or scissors needed!! Make this fun gift with them to give as gifts during the holidays.
Now head on over and hang out with these designers, see what awesomeness they've made:
Hi all!! Last week I was working on some sketches for the Sketchbook column in CardMaker magazine. I hadn't realized how much I missed making sketches until then. So, after a break from my card sketch blog of 5+ years (and 3 Sketchbook idea books through Annie's) I've decided it's time for a few more sketches ;)
