Sneak Peek-Spellbinders Summer Spectacular Day 5

Welcome everyone to your first stop on day 5 of our Spellbinders™ 
Summer BlogFrenzy 2012. I hope you are as excited as I am 
about all the new dies coming out for Summer CHA 2012!!  
There are so many new and amazing styles of dies and 
embossing folders that you will be able to choose from and-- 
we still have 3 more days of fantastic projects and videos to go.....
so let's get started!!

All my projects today are featuring our 
New Puzzle Effect Cut Fold Tuck Die.  
These fun and unique dies can be used in lots of different
ways and you can use one or all the parts to create beautiful
works of art for your friends and family.

My first set of projects is my 4th of July party decorations. My favorite 
part of Spellbinders dies is their unique styles and their versatility. Just by 
changing the parts of the dies, the papers and how you mix them-- you can 
create completely different designs as you will see in my first project 
compared to my second.  I had so much fun thinking of different things I
could make to decorate for a party and you could even make a banner to 
go with all of this for your party too!


The project I will be highlighting is my gift card/ invitation for the party. 
For this you will need white and red card stock, blue star print, red double 
dot from Bo Bunny, and a tiny dark blue print. You will also need ribbons, 
double sided adhesive and gold glitter and Dimensional Glue from 
Sparkle and Sprinkle.


Are you ready?

First you are going to cut the white card stock 4" x 11" and score
in the center and fold in half. Cut the top right and left sides 
to look like a tag and add a silver eyelet with a small circle 
in the center on the front about ½" from the top.

Now you are going to cut and emboss the large die
with the Cut Fold Tuck pieces in Red and one of the outside 
star in just the solid form in white cardstock using your Spellbinders™
 Grand Calibur®. You will also need to cut and emboss
the small Cut Fold Tuck Puzzle Effect piece in both the white
 cardstock and the blue star print.  If you find it hard to get your dies 
out you might use a bit of wax paper between the die and the paper 
and cut and emboss like always. This will make it so easy 
for the pieces to pop out from the die with little or no effort. 




After you have cut all your pieces of the dies in the solids 
and patterns you can start assembling them. Gently fold all the 
cut pieces in the opposite direction and tuck them under the open sides.


All of the tiny pieces in the dies can be folded over and
 slipped under the opposite open space or you can leave them flat 
or push them up if you like… You can also use a bone folder 
on the back to make sure that your project is flat and smooth. 
Glue the pieces on top of one another and add tiny foam
dots between the large and small layers to make the colors stand out.

For the front of the card you will cut a piece of red dot 4x 3 ⅜", 
blue starprint 4 x 2 ⅞",  and white print 4 x 2". Layer these on each 
other ½" from the bottom of the front of the card. Now you can add 
your star firework from the Puzzle Effect Cut Fold Tuck Die 
you made and add glitter as desired.  Tie a ribbon and glue to the top
 or put through the eyelet and tie.  Add the invitation words inside 
and you are all done....



I also created a napkin ring holder, cupcake pick and a cute 
little table decoration that you can put on your table to make 
your celebration that much more festive! You can add Spellbinders Stars, 
and other dies to make the pieces more elaborate and maybe printed pieces
from the papers like this Bo Bunny print shown below.
I also added glitter to make it more shiny.
