Look what I made today! In preparations up to my eyeballs for the upcoming monthly meeting of my Big Shot Budget Buster Club, I have been making things for just about every holiday year-round. But my favorite has got to be these carrot door hanger pouches!
These are made from the Big Shot Pennant Bigz XL die. If you cut out the pennant the ordinary way, it is too wide of a triangle and just doesn’t really say “carrot.” I learned that if you angle your paper on top of the die so that the one end of the folded side is touching the bottom point of the pennant, but the OTHER end is one inch away from the top edge of the normal pennant, you will get a much nicer carrot shape.
I trimmed off the top scallop on either side as well. Cut two from Apricot Appeal and sponge with Tangerine Tango. I also stamped the stem lines from Fifth Avenue Floral for the little lines on the carrot.
So there you are! Sale A Bration is the perfect time to buy this Pennant die, and if you order before my club on Monday night, you can come for FREE to that meeting and learn MANY different ways to use it, other than the ordinary pennant/banners (which are fun too, and quite addictive!) Visit my site www.lyssa.stampinup.com and place your order today, then call me to RSVP!
This is just adorable, Lyssa!! Very cute!
