Amazing Paper Grace September Die of the Month Blog Hop
Another month has come and gone and this month for September all of us on our APG team have been marveling at all the ways you can use this amazing new die set for the September Die of the Month called "Snip It Flowers".
At first glance, it looks like a background die; but it is anything but a background die. It was designed so that each of the flowers can be snipped out to create a panel, frame or element. Whether you want the 4 x 4 frame, the 3 x 4 frame, a one layer border, a two-layer border or a corner, all you have to do is "snip". Each one of us has taken the die and spun it into a creation - we hope to inspire you as you hop through all of our blogs today !!
This was another really fun die to use so for my first project i used the whole die and cut it in muted gold paper to put on a vintage back round papers with black to make it pop. It was really simple to make and the rhinestones really added an elegant feel to it. You are going to love trying some of those gorgeous papers in your stash with this die..... you really have so many options with it. You could craft all day long .....
Here is the die as you will get it in the set and it also comes with those tiny flowers on the sides so that you can layer the pieces if you should decide to cut them up.
How fun will that be to do?

My 2nd Project Today:
My second project is a pizza styled gift box that i created using just 9 of the pieces to make a square. I cut and embossed this piece and then layered the other elements around it and added a pretty bow and flower. This was super fun and easy and i even had extra paper to create this tiny gift card to go with it. This only has 4 of the flowers and measures 3x3. There is so many ways you can snip this and make gorgeous cards and other things... you are going to love having this die in your collection. I think it's one of my favorites so far!
And here is just a closeup so that you can see the gift card better. I just love this!
