Welcome to week 2 of the Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop! Thank you so very much to everyone who stopped by! If you missed last week, just click here – week 1. I am blown away by all the different ways the house was created during week one… seriously awesome work.
This week’s featured die is Karen Burniston’s Twist Cube Die. I went a different direction and made a Christmas ornament. I know you’ll see plenty of twisting examples during the hop but if you’d like to check out one I’ve previously done, check here – Daisy Twist Cube.
My twist cube ornament…
Views of each side of the cube…
I used a clear overlay to create the cube and placed my paper on the inside of the cube. This way, the photos and everything are protected from the tree branches so they don’t get all scratched up. Also, because I’m using paper and an overlay, both of which are very light, no branch will be dragged down and hanging low.
Notes: In the bottom right picture (pink with red dots), I used a date stamp to mark when the photos where actually taken. I added white paint around each square before I placed them inside the overlay.
Supplies: Sizzix Bigz XL Twist Cube 3-D Pop-Up Die #656739 by Karen Burniston, Sizzix Big Shot, clear overlay, patterned paper and punch outs from the Create Paper Snow Day Collection, Saddle Brown StazOn ink, white paint, alphabet stamps, craft tape (J and V Enterprises), Zip Dry Glue, ribbon.
