Craft Month Takeover: Sizzix!

Spring is just around the corner and we couldn't be more excited! Sizzix is here with three bright and beautiful paper craft projects to help us kick off National Crafting Month. 

Butterfly Spinner Card

What you will need:

How to make:

1. Die-cut out of gold Texture Roll the sentiment ‘Just for you’ from the Butterfly Spinner Card die set. Die-cut out of white cardstock the card base and the Framelit butterfly, out of Banana Blast cardstock a large circle, out of Cherry Blossom cardstock the Thinlit butterfly and out of desired cardstock colors a variety of flowers, flower centers and leaves from the Butterfly Spinner Card die set. 

2. With liquid adhesive, adhere the flower centers to the flowers and the Thinlit butterfly die cut to the Framelit butterfly element.

3. With the Blending Tool, ink the top left and bottom right corners of the die cut card base with Salty Ocean ink. 

4. Fold along the crease lines of the main card base. Lay the circle Framelit halfway over the folded edge in the middle of the card. Die-cut the circle into the center of the card base.

5. Fold the card back into place, position and adhere the Banana Blast circle die cut on to the card base behind the half-cut circle with liquid adhesive.

6. Cut a piece of string 3 inches long. Use hot glue to adhere the layered butterfly element to the center of the string, with the wings positioned evenly on either side of the string.

7. On the backside of the folded edge on the card, hot glue each end of the string the top and bottom of the folded edge. The string should be taut and positioned so that it follows the folded line exactly. This will mean that the card front is folded back from the creased edge.

8. Adhere the die cut sentiment with liquid adhesive to the bottom left of the folded front panel. Arrange and adhere the die cut flowers and leaves, in a desired grouping, to the top left and bottom right portions of the card with liquid adhesive. Adhere on the folded edge of the card front, a flower above and below the cut out circle opening. 

9. Adhere small circle Primrose sequins to the top right corner of the card base with liquid adhesive.

With the Blending Tool Head, blend a light blue ink along the edges of the Arctic Sky cardstock. 

2. Apply and adhesive sheet to the back of a panel of Ballet Slipper, Cherry Blossom, Green Tea, Lavender Dust, Mint Julep, Sorbet and White cardstock. Die-cut out of the adhesive-backed cardstock various flowers, flower buds leaves and all layering elements for the flowers in a desired quantity and color palette from the Floral Layers #2 die set. Die-cut out of gold shimmer cardstock various flower bud branches in a desired quantity to match the flower buds die-cut.  

3. With the Blending Tool, ink the edges of the various die cut flowers, flower buds, leaves and layering elements with desired ink colors to create variations of depth. 

4. Assemble the flowers, flower buds and leaves by removing the adhesive release sheets on each element and adhering the layered elements to their bases following the embossed guidelines on each layer. For ease of assembly, consider using a pair of tweezers to layer the various elements together. 

5. Arrange all the die cut elements in a desired grouping in the center of the Arctic Sky circle on the hoop. To create additional dimension, considering adhering the largest flowers with foam tape.
