My kids love receiving little notes in their lunch boxes. It is something I haven’t done in a long time but this is the sort of thing I mean.
The little envelope for the little note has been created using the Petite pocket die
Using the “Dinoroar Stamp set” I also made a 10cm by 10cm card.
I was able to use the Petite Pockets Die to make a larger size envelope. I love it when you can make your Bigshot dies even more versatile. Here are the two cards side by side so that you can compare the sizes
To make the larger size envelope it is simply a matter of folding your paper or cardstock in half BEFORE you run your die through the bigshot. You place the fold so that it is just inside the blade of the bigshot die so that the folded side doesn’t get cut out. Hmm- This is one of those things that I would probably be able to show better you at a workshop or ‘party’. I don’t have step-by-step photos but hopefully the following two images of how it looks after a folded piece has gone through the Bigshot will help to explain what I mean
You may recognise the cute little stamped dinosaurs from my youngest son’s birthday party. If you didn’t see my blog entry then please check it out by clicking on the following link http://www.creationsbymiriam.com/?p=1850
