Hello My Friends,
Today is an extra happy day for me because I was so excited to be asked to be a guest designer for Die Cutting Divas. The theme is "Fall Colors" I decided to make this scarecrow from SVG Cuts Leaves are Falling Kit.
Isn't he a fine looking fellow? He is basically all boxes. His hat is a box, his head is a box, his arms are boxes, his body is a box and his legs are boxes. SVG Cuts has wonderful videos that show you how to put together their products. I love them. But I do have a few tips of my own. First, when I am using paper that doesn't have a design, I always use Bazzill textured paper; it has a right side and a wrong side. This makes it easier to identify the right side of the pattern. In the video you see these gals putting these projects together really fast; they do this for editing, The glueing process takes time. Slow down, take time for each piece to dry before you move on to the next piece.
