Big Shot Double Milk

I very much enjoy the new Big Shot Mini Milk Carton Bigz L Die.
This Die fits on a "regular" piece of card stock, rather than requiring
use of 12 inch card stock.

In this example, the card stock colors include Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip
and DP from the Sweet Pea Pack.   I cut out 2 milk cartons and used
Tombo MultiPurpose adhesive to glue them together at the bottom.
Additional card stock, trimmed with the Scallop Edge border punch, was
wrapped around these conjoined milk cartons, to strengthen this bond.
The DP was added around the center and to close each milk carton.

A tag was attached to 5/8 inch Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon.
This again, came together rather quickly and is a fun gift idea.

Beautiful Butterflies Mini Notebook

This is a fast, fun little gift project, using the Big Shot
Beautiful Butterflies Die.  Just cut front and back covers, 
and Designer Series Paper (Bella Bleu in this example).
 Glue the DP to the cover (and inside if you want to)
and wrap a ribbon around to form the butterfly body.

Cut out notebook paper with the Beautiful Butterflies
Die and Big Shot.    Punch through all the layers with 
your Crop-A-Dial.   Put a ring through the hole and you're done.

If you want to put the first initial of the person you are gifting
the notepad to, it makes it a personalized gift.

This really is a very fast little project!

This is a quick treat back, using So Saffron and Sweet Pea

was stamped as a background and a main image.  

Punches included the Large Fancy Flower (from the Occasions Mini), 
1 inch circle,   1 3/4 inch circle,  small oval and Scallop Edge.
