What I made this Weekend #9

I purchase the Spellbinders Nestabilities Big Scalloped Large Circle Die Template from Hobby Lobby last week.  I have been curious if these would work on my Big Shot.  I got some mixed reviews if it would work or nor.  I decided to try it out since I have been dying to make something with scallops.  So my first attempt did not work the fabric did not cut only in a few spots.  The second time I tried it with the board/plate that comes with the Big Shot then one of my clear plates, then the die facing up, my fabric, then a piece of felt, then the clear plate, last a piece of cardstock on top of that.  It worked and cut through my fabric.  I had to cut only one at a time which was not to but love my sizzix dies where I can cut 4-6 layers of fabric in one shot.

Here is what the die looks like.  I used the 3rd smallest (I think).

This is what I ended up making.  My daughter has a music recital tomorrow evening and wanted something with music on it:



  1. Very cute flowers! Hope the recital went well! :D

  2. Pretty! I make these same flowers that I cut out by hand with a pattern I found online....using a die would make it so much easier!
