Instructions for Using the Cuttlebug Die Cuts

Save

You will find an assortment of shapes and letter dies to make die-cuts with a Provo Craft Cuttlebug machine. Paper die-cuts can be made with craft paper and card stock. The many shapes can be used to embellish hand-made greeting cards, wedding invitations, magnets, wooden frames, bulletin boards and scrapbook pages along with other craft projects. Die-cut shapes can be enhanced and decorated with ink, chalk, brads and scrapbooking supplies.

Things You'll Need

  • Paper adhesive
  • Pens or markers
  • Acid-free chalk
  • Decorative brads
  • Cut out the main die-cut image with the Cuttlebug machine. Use colors that will complement your project.

  • Cut out the same image with a secondary color. For example you can cut out the same flower die-cut in three colors or patterned paper.

  • Attach dimensional cutouts to the main die-cut with adhesive. You can add a separate ear color and eyes to a dog die-cut for a paper-pieced figure or character. A series of flower die-cuts should have a tiny hole punched in the center for assembly later.

  • Outline the die-cut with an archival ink pen or marker to emphasize the shape. Lightly chalk color shading onto the die-cut edges and center with scrapbooking chalks. Highlight with a colored white or colored ink pen. Set chalked pieces aside to dry for a few hours before securing to a project.

  • Attach dimensional pieces such as the flowers together with a decorative brad paper fastener. Insert the brad through the pre-punched holes and secure in place.

  • Attach the die-cut to your project with adhesive.
