Here's how I used the Fringe die:


Fringe Thanks

I have been waiting for a fringe die, and I am in love with this new Fringe die! Yes, I know you can cut it by hand, but if you're like me, the fringe looks more like uneven triangles. ;) This die makes the process much easier and faster.

I cut 5-6 layers of tissue paper in the three shades of pink. To speed up the die-cutting, I fan-folded the tissue paper and cut all of the layers at once. In between each layer, I stitched it to the base...it helped to keep the layers together. It was very easy!

Here's a close-up:


Fringe Thanks


I also used the new Thank Word 2 die, which will also be available March 1st. I die-cut the "thanks" out of black glitter cardstock. The satin ribbon was a freebie from Ellen Hutson. :)

Here's another close-up:
