Happy Monday to you all. I hope you found some crafting time this weekend to join us in
Lulupu Challenge #45
3D with Dies (or a die cutting machine)
Click here for all the details and rules
Tanvi Shah presented us with a beautiful shadow box + tutorial last week. If you haven't already started making your submission, I hope my project inspires you to try.
This project is another first attempt for me - traditional scrapbooking technique - paper piecing and layering. No inks, or stamps just paper and glue. Also, my first big project using the Silhouette Cameo. Here is a close up, any guesses?
Its a carousel which also doubles up as a cupcake holder. All papers have been cut using the Silhouette cameo - plain, textured, glitter and pearl cardstock . Its definitely a dream machine, I could never have created this project without this die cutting machine. The cut file for the carousel is from www.svgcuts.com
There is place for 8 cupcakes and the horses are meant to be cupcake toppers. If you look closely, you can see that the horses have been temporarily fixed to the cupcake wrappers using washi tape. They can easily be removed later and inserted into the cupcake.
The top of the carousel can also be removed, there is enough place for a card and a light weight gift.
The biggest challenge I faced was what glue to use. After some trial and error, I used a combination of dry and wet glues. Just curious - what glue and brand do you use for projects like this?
I hope this post made your Monday a little more inspired
So, dust those dies or cutting machines, take a leap of faith like I did and share your creation here with us.
