It's NEVER Too Early to Prepare for the Holidays!

The new Bigz L Candy Wrapper die from the Holiday mini catalog is awesome!!  It takes a few tries to figure out how to fold it up, but then it's fairly easy and very cool!  The best tip we can offer is to make sure to fold back and forth on ALL of the score lines before assembling it, and definitely use sticky strip to secure the sides together.  We wrapped it with a 1-1/2 inch strip of basic black cardstock that was run through the Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper textured embossing folder.  The image is from the Batty for You stamp set and it is framed with that altered scallop circle.  The ends of the candy wrapper are tied up with 1/4 inch  Pumpkin Pie grosgrain ribbon.

  1. I love that technique for the scalloped circle. Hopefully I'll be learning it from you sometime soon! It looks great on Halloween projects!

Beach Birthday Card

We used lots of Big Shot products to create this bright beach birthday card. The background combines three embossing folders - Oh My Stars...
