I am so excited to share 2 projects I have crafted using the new "Pet Shop Flashcards" Sizzix Bigz Die Set by Laura Kelly.
The first is a banner that will be sent to a charity to encourage people to "Adopt Don't Shop" for their pets! I can think of endless possibilities for the cute puppy and dog bonee dies - they can be teaching tools, party decorations, cards and so much more!
Here are the materials I used to create this banner:
- "Pet Shop Flashcards" Sizzix Bigx Die Set
- Cardboard (for banner pieces)
- Scrapbook paper
- Die Cuts with a View Adhesive Cork
- Die cut machine for letters
- Heavy duty hole punch
- Foam Dots
- Aleene's Turbo Tacky Glue
- Googly eyes
Step 1: Cut the cardboard pieces and scrapbook paper pieces. My pieces are 4" by 4".
Step 2: Die cut your letters for your banner message. I am giving this banner to a local animal charity! So I picked "Adopt Don't Shop".
Step 3: Die cut the puppy and bone using your Sizzix Die Cut Machine and embellish your puppy with googly eyes and twine for a collar.
Step 4: Assemble your banner, using Aleene's Turbo Tacky Glue to adhere the scrapbook papers to the cardboard. Use the foam dots to adhere the letters to the scrapbook paper. Note: For the middle tier of the banner, I used Die Cuts with a View Adhesive Cork (3" by 3") to provide some fun texture and contrast to the banner.
Step 5: Punch holes in the top corners of the banner pieces using a heavy duty punch - I use the We R' Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile. Then pull the twine through banner pieces, you now have an fun new banner!
I am so excited that Laura Kelly's die set includes a fun variety of sea life, reptiles and insects - including a snake, dragonfly, lizard, frog, crab and fish! Here is the second banner I created using the materials listed above and also featuring the Die Cuts with a View Burlap Stack - I love the colorful burlap!
