So what does the Big Shot have to do with Chocolate?
Easter of course!!
Still confused?? By using my Big Shot machine I was able to easily make this adorable little Easter Basket just big enough to hold some chocolate Easter Eggs. MMMM!
The Big Shot made it so easy.
Do you know that you can cut up to 8 layers of fabric at once? You can only do this with the Big Shot Dies (not sizzlets). For the basket I cut 4 layers of fabric at once. I cut a 5cm strip of material and then folded it concertina style, placed it over the small scallop square of the Scallop Square Duo Bigz Die. Voila! 4 pieces exactly the same size. The edge of the scallops formed the edge upon which to place my sewing machine foot when sewing the scallop squares together.
I’m definitely planning on making more of these. They can not only be used as easter baskets. Wouldn’t they look lovely on the coffee table with some lollies in them at Christmas or Birthdays? I’m planning on using mine to hold supplies at my workshops to showcase the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Fabric.
Oh and I have to mention (upon pain of death), that my daughter Chantelle (the budding photographer) took these photos of the Easter Basket for me. 🙂
Happy Stamping! (or in this case sewing)
