Diecember 2018 Release Blog Hop

Happy Diecember, crafty friends! I’m excited to be part of a blog hop celebrating the Diecember release from Simon Says Stamp, which you can find HERE.

I’m a big fan of the picture book dies so I’m sharing 5 ways to use the Big Picture Book Dies for the Holidays…

I love that you can tuck things in the critter’s paws. Here are 5 ideas of what to put in them…

#1: Add a die-cut…

After paper piecing THIS otter together, I added THIS die between his paws.

#2: Add a picture…

After paper piecing THIS bunny with THIS body, I added a picture of my son. It makes a great gift topper or ornament!

#3: Add money…

THIS bear with THIS body makes a perfect money holder for a gift.

#4: Add a gift card…

THIS panda with THIS body is the perfect spot to add a gift card. How cute is that Starbuck’s card!?

#5: Add candy…

Who wouldn’t like receiving chocolate with THIS cute puppy!?

I added the Santa hat from THIS new die to all of the critters.

I have a BONUS GIFT IDEA using these critter’s HERE.
