Die Storage by your Big Shot

Have you had this problem – you are creating with your Big Shot, pulling out various dies as you work on your project, you set one down on the table and keep working, then you need it again and it has disappeared?  Oh no!  It was just there.  Now its hiding under a little pile of paper scraps and hopefully you didn’t just put it in the trash!  Tragically I have lost a die like this and have been trying really hard not to let it happen again.  So I found a solution!  Magnet sheets!  Framed to set right by your Big shot!  Or perhaps you hang it on the wall by your Big Shot station.

For my frame I found 5×7″ white frames at Ikea – these had a flat front edge so I was able to use Washi Tape to decorate – it’s the Pick a Pattern Washi Tape.  I bought 5×7 magnet sheets which turned out to not actually be 5×7 but just a little bit smaller than that.  So they didn’t stay in the frame on their own – because they would slip through the opening.  So I used Tear & Tape and adhered the magnet sheet directly to the glass piece of the frame.

To decorate the corner of the frame I used the new Daisy punch and Daisy Delight stamp set.  Mine is Crushed Curry flower so it would match my classroom.  My Stamp Club made this project they each chose the color that they wanted for their flowers – so we had all different colors.  For the leaves underneath punch a daisy in Old Olive and the fold it in half so the petals off set with each other. I finished the center of the flower with a Clear Faceted Gem.

It’s really a quick and easy project once you have the frame and magnet sheet – you could decorate with any flower punch that you have on hand or a die!

Have a great day!
