Big Shot Rag Bag

Sorry I've been quiet.  I've been working on this Rag Bag.

I cut out Scalloped Squares of fabric with my Big Shot.
Then sewed them  together, with the edges out to form the bag.
The zipper was the hardest part. Typically, people just leave the top open.

I used retired SU ribbon for the strap.
I hope that you like it.

RMDH Scallop Peacock

First... yes, I know the peacock is tipping over.  I fixed it on the 
card but did not take another picture.

This is a Big Shot Large Scallop Card, where the DP is attached
before it is run through the Big Shot.  That procedure results in
nice strips of scalloped paper product.

The peacock was repeatedly heat embossed with Glassy Glaze EP
and then put in the freezer for 10 minutes.  Immediately upon taking it
out, you bend the card stock to create cracks, hence the technique
named "Cracked Glass".  I used the Medium Jewelry Punch to
punch out the sentiment from the Vintage Scallops set.  That
was tied to the always artichoke grosgrain.

Big Shot Scallop "Sandwich"

You can make really cute cards using the Big Shot Large Scallop
or Square Scallop Dies.  You use the SU glue stick to glue a strip
of DP to 8 1/2 x 5 card stock.  Then, position it on your Big Shot
so that it is BELOW the top 3-5 scallops.  When you run it
through your Big Shot, you have a card that opens, but retains a
scallop shape.
