Xmas CirclesI shall be demonstrating this technique at Stamp Club next week so have been preparing a few samples. We’ll be using squares at first as they’re easier to cut out – we don’t have die-cutting machines available – but I’ve cut out sets of circles too for a second attempt once they know what they’re doing 🙂

It appears that you can make these in just about any shape you like! I’ve got ovals, circles, hearts, squares and a whole mess of diamonds. Links to directions for these were given in my earlier post, I hope you’ll have a go yourself. Let me know if you find other shapes which work.

I have since taken this from the square card and mounted it onto a round one.

I tried the whole set of diamond dies - it works!

The tag is attached to a Spellbinder Label shape attached to a Sizzix pocket


The tag slides into the pocket too


The tag is freestanding - anything (some dosh perhaps) could go into the pocket
