Die Cuts R Us Challenge


It's time for a new challenge at Die Cuts R Us! This week's challenge is all about gift giving! Create a project that can be given as a gift. It can be a LO, card, or altered item. Be sure to leave your link on Mr. Linky at the DCRU DT Blog.

I had so much fun with my project. I was inspired by a recent creation of Michelle Wooderson's. I wanted to make a craft kit, with all the goodies that you need to make a creation. So I made a card kit.



I started with a clear card box from Paper Garden Projects. I wrapped a portion of my box with red PTI paper. I used my Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots folder to emboss the center of my paper, that would be on the front of my box. I then added a pretty bow and a pink flower Christmas decoration.



Then I added cards made by My Mind's Eye. I used my Cuttlebug and Spellbinder Nestabilities to cut out die cuts and then stamped them with sentiments by PTI. So the recipient will only have to add the premade sentiments to their card.



I also added buttons, flowers, and ribbon to my little kit. Everything a crafty cardmaker would need to make a quick creation.



Visit Die Cuts R Us Store, where the Cuttlebug, embossing folders, and Spellbinder Nestabilties are available. And visit the DCRU DT Blog to see the DT's beautiful creations. And be sure to play along!

Enjoy!!!
