One Die, Two Ways

July 9, 2015 at 12:38 pm 7 comments

Hey! It’s that time again…that time when all my kids want presents for their teachers. Some have several which makes it tricky! So- I only ever really handmake stuff or bake- but you need tags and cards don’t you!  

  I’ve used my favourite ‘teacher’ type of set…Lawn Fawn’s ‘A Good Apple’ 

   
To add the chunky straw in, I’ve added little snips to help it stay flatter. If you add the cardstock into the die by ignoring the hole die bits, you get a pocket shape that’s perfect for slipping gift cards in or just adding stability  

   
However- just look carefully at the shape once cut out…

It’s perfect for creating a mini book. Just add a score line slightly the right of the holes. Add a few ‘pages’ and secure with ribbon.

    
  

I’ve used the Really Rosemaling set, available at Make The Day Special Stamp Store here

 

This is what the die looks like  

 
Well, I need to go and make a whole load a calorific naughtiness ready for the end of this week and next. They finish at different times and for different amounts of holidays!! 

See you tomorrow with a fun Christmas set…not done in a Christmas way though!

    Just love how your mind works. Who would have thought of this…apparently you. Makes me feel quite like a fraud. Anyway, everyone going to tell you these are adorable, and they are, but I like them because of their cleverness and your meticulous stamping. Sounds as though your children’s school schedules need to be more organized so Mum doesn’t go over the deep end.
