Just a Tweet Spellbinders Large Die of the month
“Just a Tweet” the Large Die of the month, is a 34 PCS die set and it is simply divine!
It will allow you to create multilayered die-cut birds and florals suitable for a wide variety of compositions and to make any size cards or projects.
The sky’s the limit but to keep it simple I made a box topper and a tag to share extra ideas with you.
Just a Tweet Box
This mini gift box measures 3×3 inches.
- To make it, I used 2 pieces of cardstcok .
- Both measured 5×5 inches but for the box base I trimmed the pice down 1/8″ inch.
- Using the FSJ Scoring board, I scored 1″ all aroundthe edges.
- Then I trimmed the corners and I assambled the pieces.
- To embellish I used Spellbinders Gold Gems.
For the banners on the box and the tag projects I used:
- The Spellbinders Platinum 6 Die cuting machne and Spellbinders Hot foil System
- Gold Hot Foil
- Everyday Sentiments II Glimmer Hot Foil Plates
- Mini Everyday Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set
Just a Tweed Tag
To make this tag, I used Nested Tags die set to die cut the pieces for this project and I simply added the little die cuts over.
DIY Marble Paper
When playing with Arteza Iridescent Paints ( available on the Arteza online Shop UK here and in the Arteza USA online Shop here), I found a cool way to create DIY marble-looking paper also using my neglected Nuvo Gilding Flakes.
So today, I also wanted to share this easy idea with you.
Marble Paper in 4 easy steps
- First, I applied a little bit of Fairy Tale and Royal Purple ARTEZA Iridescent Acrylic Paints over the glass mat and I diluted them with water ( I also mixed them a little bit)
- Then, I placed the glossy side of affordable high gloss photo paper over the paint ( smooching technique)
- Next, I added Gilding Flakes over the paper while the paint was still wet ( As the paint is tick and a little bit sticky the flakes will stick to it)
- Once the paper was dry ( next day), I used a Nuvo Sweep Brush to remove the eccess gilding flakes.
