No Snipping Allowed

Stampin up big shot bigz dies

Tired of templates?  These adorable 3-D cuties are created in a snap using Bigz and Bigz XL Dies with my Big Shot Die-Cut Machine.  I get a perfectly cut and scored rectangular box, basket and pillow box.  Just adhere and decorate.  That qualifies each of them for my Stamping 911 category, defined as projects that can be replicated in 10 minutes or less.  Click here for more of my Stamping 911 samples.

Each sample was created using Sweet Slumber Specialty Designer
Series Paper.  The four "specialty" papers offered on p. 158 of
Stampin' Up!'s Spring/Summer Idea Book and Catalog are cover-weight card stock.  TIP:
The heavier construction makes these papers even sturdier for boxes and
3-D objects. Cool.

Stampin up big shot bigz baskets & blooms

Stampin' Up!'s Baskets and Blooms Bigz XL die is responsible for this lovely shape (assembled 3.5" H x 4.5" W).  TIP:  I used a small rubber band to tighten the cello bag before tying the Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon.  It think it's easier and crisper.
