Have you heard of Lifestyle Crafts? They're the ones who have the amazing die-cut and embossing machine. I am going to show you how to make a 3D paper flower - I used their eyelet circle dies, but you could cut circles by hand as well.
But first up, they also are running a super fun contest - all you have to do is make a facebook status about the contest
More contest info HERE.
So, want to know what I've made recently with my machine??
Remember this cute letter banner on my Card Holder Display - yep, I cut it with my Epic 6 cutter -
It's so easy to use - - you just set the dies on the mat thing and roll it through the machine - even my preschooler is loving to cut things!!
(ugh - I swear I took a picture of her using the machine, but I can't find it - sorry!) But I did find a picture of my toddler working it - he needed a little help twisting the handle, but still loved "helping":
Alright, so a quick tutorial on how I made the 3D paper flowers - - just like fabric ones - -
See how they are 3D - - and last longer than real flowers....
Easy peasy - you can make them!
I also made some boxes with the box and lid die:
I love using dies to cut out shapes that you will use over and over - makes it super quick and easy!
