The Big Shot excitement is huge in Stampin’ Up! world and I’ve had a chance to make some lovely projects with mine! I have to say that before we carried the Big Shot, I didn’t own a cutting system. When I receive it I figured when I made my first basket…I better just take photo’s and share with you how to create it!
Here’s the "Bella Basket" I made and it only took minutes to make! Can you imagine this same basket using different holiday type paper? Picture Halloween, Christmas, etc….so many possibilities!
Supplies used to make this project:
||Big Shot Die-Cut Machine
||Extended Cutting Pads
||Baskets & Blooms Bigz XL Die
||Bella Rose Designer Series Paper
||Tombow Multi Purpose Adhesive
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great stamping day! Josee
Step 1: Create your "sandwich" as shown below! This is an important step!
Step 2: Put your sandwish through the Big Shot and turn your handle till it’s all the way through. Don’t be scared if you hear cracking…it’s an ok sound!
Step 3: Pop out your die-cuts from your paper!
Step 4: You’ll find a score mark on both sides of your basket, gently fold them them in. Add adhesive to one side and them press together with the other side of the basket. (I used Tombow Multi Purpose Glue, but, you could also use Sticky Strip). Hold together for a few seconds, then do other side.
Step 5: At this point, it will look like this without a bottom.
Step 6: Take bottom and fold the tabs in. You will see a circle score mark on the bottom, you can use this as your guide of where to fold from.
Step 7: Add Tombow Multi Purpose Adhesive to the tabs and carefully drop into your basket!
Step 8: Push basket flat to your table and use a Bone Folder to push the tabs up to the bottom (inside) of your basket.
Decorate your basket!
