I L.O.V.E. MY BIG SHOT...

I wanted to wear this skirt to church on Palm Sunday, but it was too long, almost to the floor.  So I got my scissors out and cut off about eight inches.  Then with my seldom-used sewing machine, I changed the hemline to a more desired length...

The leftover piece of fabric was sooooo pretty.  (Here's a sample.)  I didn't want to throw it out...

... so I used my Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, along with my Flower Folds Bigz XL Die, and made this lapel flower...

It is held together with an Antique Brad.

There are dozens of ways to use a Big Shot.  You can cut paper, vinyl, fabric, chipboard, cork sheets, wood sheets, and more!  It is the perfect cutting tool for so many of your home and family projects.  I L.O.V.E. my Big Shot!

Stunning idea!

Linda, Your lapel pin is gorgeous! Did you get a lot of compliments? I'll bet you did. TFS!

Linda what a FABULOUS idea! You'll be so coordinated on Palm Sunday... Hugs

When you cut fabric with it do you need any interfacinf to stiffen up the fabric or will it cut it as is?
