Fancy Friday by Jan

Happy Friday!  I am very excited to share that I used my Big Shot Die Cutting machine for the first time ever this week.  I've had it for ages and just never learned or cared to use it.  Well, I'm hooked now!  I got this pretty butterfly die and have been playing with it all week!  Isn't it beautiful?

Butterfly%20die%20for%20store%20die%20alone  For my Happy Spring project, I used Kreaxions 4 in 1 punch #903 (flowers) to give an eyelet effect on my die cut butterfly.

Here are 2 close ups of the butterfly.

After I die cut the butterfly I carefully folded it in half at the body and used the flower punch and did the same thing for each of the wings.  I  then unfolded it and punched the rest of it till I had the effect I was looking for.  I then used that same punch (without any inserts) for a card stock border which I sewed to a piece of pattern paper for my tube insert.

Have a great weekend and happy punching!
