Spiral Flower Pin

Big Shot, Sizzix, Stampin' Up! Occasions CatalogOne of the products in the new Stampin’ Up!® Occasions Catalog is a spiral flower die for the Sizzix® Big Shot.  Since it’s one of the “Bigz” dies, it can cut materials besides paper – metal, felt, burlap, fabric, and lots more.  And it can cut several layers at once.  If you’re a little on the impatient side (like me!), that’s a huge plus.

I ran several layers of retired Spice Cake Designer fabric (available on the Clearance Rack for only $3.99!) through my Big Shot with the die.  It cut perfect scalloped spirals.  I used a little fabric stiffener on each spiral, then let them dry before coiling.  I was in a hurry to see if this would work, so my first efforts aren’t the best.  Apparently, my glue gun got away from me, and the center of the flower is a little tighter than I like.  But, all in all, I’m pleased.  I glued this one to a pin back, and will probably wear it tomorrow to lunch with my sister-in-law.  In person, the glue glob is almost invisible.  (The camera, sadly, sees all – wayward glue, lumpy hips, facial blemishes…Isn’t it good that we don’t have to be perfect?)

You can order from the Occasions catalog now!  If you’d like a paper copy to look at and hold in your hands, let me know and I’ll send you one.  There are so many fun, new products, and I can’t wait to try as many as I can.  I love creating “from scratch,” but when my schedule gets a little crazy, the new kits are a huge help.  We have kits for party prep, home decor, gorgeous cards and even scrapbooks – and more!  You have to check it out.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.  Have a beautiful day!  (We’re actually seeing double digit temps!  Wooot!!  Heat wave.)
