Shaped Cards| Sizzix Post

Hi friends !

I shared a fun project at  Sizzix blog today where I show how we can get creative with Sizzix Framelits scallop Circles

We usually use this die set to make windows on our projects or for layering and matting. But with a little creative twist, we can get the best out of our regular dies and make very interesting and fun projects.

Check out what I made :-

DIY Money Gift Envelopes | Sizzix Post

Hello friends! 

My new post for this week is up on sizzix.co.uk blog and I've shared a few DIY ideas for making money gift envelopes. The season of festivals has begun in India and when we talk of festivals, we know that gifting is an essential aspect . Money gift envelopes are quite popular here as one of the gifting options for some festivals, weddings or baby showers. Today I’m sharing a few ideas to make and decorate the money gift envelopes with the help of the new dies- Sizzix Thinlits Garden Greens and Sizzix thinlits die set Holiday words:Script.

Sharing a picture here:-

To view how these were made and to have a closer look at each of these, please visit the link below :-

If we have been crafting for a while, usually there’s no dearth of colourful card paper lying in our stash that we tend to hoard over a period of time. One nice idea to put them to good use is to make some envelopes out of these. I’m sharing a step-by-step process showing you how I made a money gift envelope and embellished it with the help of dies. It's very easy to make and you can easily make it without the use of any special crafting tool like envelope maker. I used  MS score board for measuring and scoring, but you can also make it without the score board, just using a simple steel ruler and a pencil.
