Polaroid Frame from Stitched Rectangle Dies. OK, I get it. Today is Christmas Eve, so what am I expecting, that you are going to have time for a crafting post and video? Well, maybe not today, but you can always come back between Christmas and New Year. And, it is a very quick post and video, so maybe you do have a few moments today?
Yesterday I made a Timeless Tropical Thank You Card that had a Polaroid style frame on it, in fat I used the same idea on Saturday, so it really is about time I showed you how I made them. These definitely fall into the ‘fiddly, but not difficult’ category. The main point to remember, after the first die cut, DO NOT to run your dies all the way through the die cutter.
What we need to do is to die cut from each end, but not in the middle. It takes a few goes to get the final look, but it is worth the time to get the beautiful stitched frame on all the sides. If you are happy to not have the square opening framed with stitching, then you could substitute the smaller Stitched Rectangle with a Layering Square die of the right size.
This really is one of those times when you need to watch the video to fully grasp how this is done – AKA I would have to write an essay to explain it in the written word!! Not this close to Christmas! So hop over to the video and take a look, it is only 7 minutes long, so not much time out of your busy day.
Have a fantastic Christmas and I will see you back with a full post on Boxing Day (26th December) featuring a project I have made for the Inspire.Create.Challenge Design Team. If you like cute, or just like a challenge group, this will be well worth a look.
