Big Shot Pillows


Well, I finally decided to get the Big Shot! If you are wondering what the Big Shot is, it is a personal die cut machine. So far I have been very impressed! I'll definitely be posting more projects in the future that use the Big Shot. If you want to see more about the Big Shot and the available products, click HERE or on the link in the right column of this page.

This project was another one we made at Technique Club this month. We ran the Designer Paper through the Big Shot using the pillow die and it comes out all cut and scored. Very cool! These make for really quick projects. Tie the ribbon around (*hint--you can tie the ribbon around the box when it is still flat--makes it a little easier) and then add the tag.

The tags use the faux metal technique. Stamp on Brushed Silver card stock with Versamark ink and then heat emboss with Silver Embossing powder. Then punch out with the new Curly Label punch. The sentiments were embossed with with Silver Embossing Powder and then punched out with the Small Oval punch and popped up with dimensionals on top of the silver tag. Fun little projects for Christmas or anytime!

so cute! Did you need to use the crease pad to get good score lines?

Really love those pillow boxes - the colors of the designer papers are lovely. In the UK we are still waiting on the new catalogue (1st Oct)...I wonder if the bigshot will be in it? :)
