Die Cutting Essentials 51 Pop Up Box Die Set

Hi Everybody,

These little die cut boxes are very popular at present and with this die set they are also easy to make.

They can be for male or female and can be adapted to suit many occasions.

All the featured tools are in the set, and I have cut mine twice ... once from silver card and a second time in a colour.

Then if you trim them down so that just the handles are used on each silver portion they can mimic proper tools.

The magazine Die Cutting Essentials 51 will be on sale on the 25th April in selected supermarkets so keep a look out for it if this is a die set you would like 

 It's perfect for your male cards and I have one set to give away as a Friday Freebies later in the year

In the video I used the dies in the pop up box in a different way to create an aperture card.

The tiny flowers and leaves have been used to add decoration to what turned out to be a pretty card
I added a little bit of shading to flowers, leaves and butterflies but it's nothing fancy so don't be afraid to have a try ... you will see that it does make quite a difference to your die cuts.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
