...I blogged before about using a big shot die to make a stamp using funky foam, and I've always regretted that the foam is too thick to go into SU's lovely punches so that I can make stamps out of them too. But today I found a way! I just ran it through the bigshot with a die in it turned the wrong way round, and added a few sheets of paper as a shim, just to give the foam a bit of a squeeze. The funky foam became JUST thin enough that I could fold it in a piece of thin computer paper and slide it carefully into the die. So now I have a stamp made from my bird and owl builder punches. Here's the bird punch and a quick test:
If you want a Big Shot (and who wouldn't, really) but you're worried about the cost, here's a solution. Have a hostess party at your house and invite lots of your crafty friends. If they and you spend a total of only £300 or more, you'll be entitled to a Big Shot (or any other product) for HALF PRICE= £44 which is a brilliant bargain however you look at it, and ALSO £50 of hostess pounds to spend on any goodies in the catalogue but including exclusive access to the advantageously priced hostess products. Christmas is a great time for crafting, so why not organise a christmas crafting party with me today!
