Hi Everyone! The Big Shot's dies can be used for more than papercrafting! Here I used the Flower Bigz Die 114534 for my rag flower pin and the luggage tags below. The material for the flower pin is from the Springtime Vintage Designer Fabric 121817in the current mini p 16. My blue button is fromm the Holiday Mini – I had a few left and wanted to put them to good use! But the Navy button shown would work and is from the 122301 Big Designer Button Springtime Vintage collection. p. 16 too. How to make:
Cut 2 flower images using the designer fabric.
Cut 1 flower image using batting
Sew all three pieced down the center of the petal.
Attach button using Linen Thread 104199
Rag cut by cutting along outside of petal towards the sew line.
Throw in a lingerie bag and wash and dry. Slightly press with iron if need be.
You don't have to rag cut the flower, I just like the worn look.
And here is a TOTALLY different craft project…luggage tage! Still using the flower die, punch out foam images. I found a pack of 6×9 assorted color foam sheets at Walmart. A friend had given me some left over premade felt flowers and I glued them to the center. Floral Fusion 115969 or Island Floral 118871 would be great subs. I have Island Floral and will use that next time. I went to the local DoIt Best hardward store and bought the chain and connectors. Very inexpensive to do it this way! An old pair of scissors cut through the chain. And I punch the hole with my Crop-a-dile 108362. These make great luggage tags for easy identification or for book bags ,etc…
I hope you enjoyed seeing other uses for our Big Shot dies and Happy Crafting! ~Dee
