Happy Monday Everyone.
Thanks for tuning in to this week's tip.
I thought I would share an idea on an innovative way to use your negative die cut images.
After you have popped out the die cut and are left with the negative image,use it to create a customized, dimensional embellishment for a card or a scrap layout.
What you do is find a self adhesive cello bag. Make sure it is one that will fit behind your negative die cut image.
They look like this:
Often times when you purchase craft items they come in small, self adhesive pouches. Save those pouches for this project.
Now fill that self adhesive, cello bag part way or about two thirds of the way with an item of your choice like...
glitter, confetti, mini shells, beads, etc...you get the idea.
I filled mine with these little flower shaped, green confetti:
Once your cello bag is filled part way, seal it and adhere it behind the negative die cut image. Once adhered, turn your negative over & you will be able to see through the cut part of your image the contents you inserted in the cello bag. That will render you an embellishment with dimensionality & uniqueness. For the best effect do not fill the bag full. Use good adhesive like glue lines or score tape. Coordinate your contents with your project for a customized look.
What you end up with is something that looks like this:
I die cut the gift box image from the "Stamping" Cricut Cartridge.
Just a little side note...you may want to sandwich the cello bag & its' contents between 2 negative die cut images for stability. Then adhere down to your project using glue dots or pop dots. Either way you can't go wrong on this one of kind fun, interactive embellishment.
I am certain you will have fun and discover so many possibilities.
