The other awesome thing about this week is it gave me a great opportunity to put my recently purchased Sizzix Big Kick to work. One of the touted features that eventually led me to purchase a machine was that the dies could cut through fabric, as well as paper and card stock. The other feature I was into was the embossing feature. I managed to use both the cutting and the embossing functions while putting together this week's projects. Woohoo! I love gettin' my money's worth. Anyway, on to the items!
|Butterfly wing earrings. These were also die cut. I am really having a butterfly thing lately, and this is the first project I've tried that actually looked the way I wanted it to when finished. Hurray!|
|Die cut circles that I ran through the embosser to give them texture. I really like how these turned out and can't wait to emboss more stuff. I see a lot of hand made leather components in my future!|
|Hand cut squares, linked together with super short Japanese 2 in 1 chains. Punching all the holes in the little squares way more time than I thought it would but I'm pretty happy with the results.|
