Hello friends! Daniela Costa from The Art Life here today to show you how to use one Sizzix® die in three different ways!
Don’t you just love Jen Long’s Fold-a-Long™ cards? I sure do! They are adorable, versatile and so easy to put together. For these projects, I’ve used the Pineapple Fold-a-Long set.
- Sizzix® Big Shot™ Machine
- Sizzix Thinlits™ Die Set - Card, Pineapple Fold-a-Long™ by Jen Long (#662727)
- Sizzix Thinlits Die Set - Shadow Script #3 by Tim Holtz® (#662686)
- Patterned Paper
- Toothpicks or Lollipop Sticks
First, I made a darling Fold-a-Long card using all the elements that come with the set. From a cute heart to a layered flower, this card is great for anyone on your list.
Then, I made photo frames for a scrapbook page using the exact same set! I’m always trying to think of different ways to use my Sizzix dies to maximize usage. I made three frames from the Pineapple Fold-a-Long set and then added die-cut words from the Shadow Script #3 set for embellishment.
The third project I made with the Pineapple Fold-a-Long set was these Pineapple Cake Toppers! My mom made the most beautiful pineapple upside-down cake for my son’s birthday, and these cake toppers were the perfect decoration.
I really enjoyed showing you how you can use your dies for so much more than cardmaking. Have a wonderfully creative day!
