This past weekend, I had a class in which participants made St. Patrick’s Day banners! They mentioned that they wanted one of the pieces of the banner to show a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. The rainbow and the gold were easy to make, as I have the Rainbow Builder Framelits Dies. But I knew the pot was going to be a little more difficult! Initially, I wasn’t sure how I was going to make it, and had decided that I would probably just cut one freehand. But before I did so, I decided to flip through all of my cutting dies to see if there was something I could use. And in my Coffee Cups Framelits I found the perfect solution:
The die circled above is supposed to be a clear dome lid for a coffee cup. But I saw an upside down pot! So I used it to cut some black cardstock, flipped it upside down, and placed it on the piece to see how it would look. I think it works pretty well! (And no fussy freehand cutting! Phew!)
Be sure to check back tonight for a bonus post at 8:00 pm Eastern Time! I will be participating in a Facebook hop that will feature Valentine’s Day gift bags and boxes. I hope you’ll check back in and follow along!
In the meantime, enjoy your day!
