Having Fun With Cut3 Dies...

Hi! I hope you have been following all the exciting announcements and the fabulous inspiration on our blog. Today I am back with a second round of inspiration for our January challenge. 


Yeah! You can make anything like Cards, Tags, 3D projects, Mixed media , Scrapbook Albums, Layouts, ATCs etc. Just remember that the stamps or stencils or any other products by Mudra Craft Stamps should be the focus.

I decided to take a complete break from my card making supplies and create something different as inspiration. Couple of months ago we released the Cut3 dies. These are really great dies that cut like butter. I pulled out my felt stash and created four hair accessory projects for you. These make great gifts or party favours. I often make them for my daughter's friends.



Project 1:



  • Use the Gardenia Cut3 dies to cut two flowers out of dark and light pink felt. 
  • Also cut two leaves from green felt.
  • Hot glue the flowers and leaves together and then add to a light pink hair band.
  • To finish, add a yellow gem stone.


Here is a close up of the bloom.



Project 2:



  • Cut 5 flowers and 10 leaves out of red and green felt with smaller of the CUT3 dies.
  • Hot glue the leaves on the hairband.
  • Add the red flowers.
  • To finish, add turquoise gems to the center of the flowers.



Project 3:



  • Take the Cut3 Slider die and cut 6 pieces of denim with the smaller slider die. 
  • Hot glue the pieces to a dark blue hair band.
  • Cut several flowers out of blue gingham fabric. Add a shim for smoother cutting.
  • Stack two flowers and hot glue them where the denim pieces meet.
  • To finish, add a white half pearl. 


Here is a close up of the band.




Project 4:



  • Cut several pieces of dark and light green felt with the smaller leaf from the Gardenia Cut3 die set.
  • Start from one end of the hair band and hot glue the leaves alternately, overlapping each a little.
  • To finish, add small white half pearls with hot glue.


Here is a close up of the band.
