Huh? February already? Where did it creep up on me from?! T-minus 13 days to get those slushy Valentine's projects done, peeps - lol!
Sorry, I digress. Happy Weekend (just!) I hope it's been a lovely weekend for you so far. For me it's been a case of some serious crafting with the new Clearly Besotted Stamps Feb release. That's right, it's time for us to give you a sneaky peek of what's going to be available to purchase from Wednesday 5th Feb @ 22:00 (GMT). :)
Today's sneaky peek combines two sets to create some seriously small onesie tags/cards. I used the die and onesie stamp from the set, Little Onesie, and the sentiments from the set, Special Delivery. When I say tiny, I mean teeny-tiny! They only measure 2" tall!
- Because these are so tiny, I plan to use these as gift tags. I've got it all planned out: wrap the present in parcel paper, decorate with twine and use a mini peg to attach the tag/card to the twine. A mini peg is all the go right now, but it's always been such a fitting embellishment for baby-themed projects.
- It's easy to create shaped cards with dies. For these mini cards, I simply folded my base card in half and made sure the top of the onesie die overlapped the top fold as I ran it through my Cuttlebug. Be sure to run it through your die cutting machine a couple of times to ensure it cuts through both layers of card (or like me, be impatient and be prepared to do some cutting after taking it out of the machine!)
- In order to get the mini cards/tags to stand, you will need to cut a straight edge on the bottom. The onesie die is rounded at the bottom but a simple snip across the bottom solves this. :)
Alas, the household chores and books-to-be-marked are calling me. Better scoot. But before I sign off, here's one piece of advice I'll leave you with that I discovered from my crafting session yesterday: Tie long hair back when crafting, and Glossy Accents is not a good look for your hair. Go figure. Ha!
