Jaded Blossom Fancy Topper Die Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to the Jaded Blossom Fancy Topper Die Blog Hop.  All of our projects are created using the versatile die pictured above.

If you arrived here from the very talented Kate, then you are in the right place.  If not and you would like to start at the beginning click here. There will also be a complete line up below.

There are so many uses for this die, I just LOVE it....
 Here are my projects using the fancy topper die - a ladybug goody bag, santa goody bag and a purse gift card holder...........

 To create this purse, I folded a 6 x 6 inch cardstock in half and placed it on the topper die, but not completely covering the die as pictured below. The edge of the cardstock that is closer to the exposed part of the die, should be the creased side, and the left side of the cardstock is the open part.

After running your die through your machine, it should look like the picture below.  You now have the base of the purse.

Now who's ready for a prize.  Jaded Blossom will be giving away a $10 gift card to the Jaded Blossom Store. The more blogs you comment on, the more chances you have to win, and for all orders placed this weekend, shipping is FREE when you add the fancy topper die to your order.  Just use the coupon code "FANCYTOPPER"

Here's the entire line up just in case you get lost:

Thanks so much for hopping with us.  Your next stop is the fabulous Trixie.
