Spellbinders April 2019 Large Die Kit

This has been a busy blog week but I just had to share this sweet project I made with the new April Large Die kit from Spellbinders - the kit includes all the dies for an adorable gift card bag, complete with all the trimmings!

Here's a peek at the kit before I get going, and a few of the club details! Club members have first (and sometimes exclusive) access to these items that are released monthly, as well as gifts and discounts available only to members. There are die kits, card kits, foiling kits, and combinations of them all! The kits come with project ideas and at least one tutorial You can find all the details about monthly kit memberships HERE.

April Large Die of the Month kit - Spellbinders

The finished bag is 3" x 4", and that die has possibilities for pop up elements and boxes as well. There are also pieces for a rolled tassel, which will come in handy for some graduation cards I'll need to make soon! The narrow piece creates a hanger, and the scored rectangle wraps around to secure the rolled tassel.

Instead of using it for a tassel on my project, I cut a few pieces and adhered them to a border strip, then cut the fringe shorter with my guillotine cutter for a sweet little border on my bag. It could work for grass or could even be layered for a pinata... I'll have to try that one of these days!

TIP: I found this die cuts best with a chipboard shim underneath.

The bag handles can be adhered to the inside or outside - I lined mine up together with a small dot of glue on each end, and squeezed them inside so they'd be in the same place. I did the same on the other side.

The insert piece cuts a slot at the fold line so you can tuck in a little tissue paper, or die cut a couple of decorative pieces like I did here. I did an accordion fold on the scored lines, which made it really easy to arrange. The bear and other decorative pieces were left over from the project I shared Wednesday - thankfully I had just enough pieces to make a sweet little birthday scene!

There's a die that cuts two little tabs at the perfect width for a gift card, which centers perfectly on the insert. It would work for the inside of a card as well, and since the width is set, it can be used at any angle. Pretty useful!

Here's the full project all assembled - this is a great set of useful basics that can take on any theme, and I know I'll be using it often!

Have a wonderful weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!
