Altered quiche pan using layered die-cuts.

4:00:00 PM

Welcome to today's post with me Jowilna - I go through stages where i like to alter stuff i find around the home, at old markets and a lot of times it's stuff my mom drags from all over thinking i might be able to use it...ahh the life of a hoarder! So today I altered a quiche pan to create a little keepsake to stand on a small easel or on a shelf. I used a combination of scalloped circle dies and doily dies to create a base for my silhouette cut out.
I used a combination of paper scraps, book paper, diamante, flowers and other bits and pieces.For the little flag pole I used a colored straw with some washi tape as the flag, bakers twine and gorgeous flowers to add a nice soft touch.
The "love you" is a digi printable printed onto white American Crafts cardstock.
Love those flowers adding to the softness of the scalloped die-cuts.

Around the outside edge i used Couture Creations colored diamonds to create a border alternating small and medium.
Here you can see the different scalloped edges and the quiche pan edge clearly.
Step 1 - cut a large and small scalloped edged circle out of patterned papers. Ink the edges.
Step 2 - cut a Ornamental Lace die from The Treasures range [CO723314] and ink the edges.
Step 3 - Start layering the circles and doily on top of each other and adhere together.
Step 4 - layer your plain punched circle in between the die-cut circles. You can raise some of the layers using your foam tape for dimension.
Step 5 - complete your layer - adhere the layered circles inside the quiche pan using Couture Creations foam tape. Add the die-cut silhouette [CO723720] - i inked the silhouette and then added a layer of dimensional glaze.
Step 6 - The diamante is easily positioned and adjusted using the tip of your Couture Creations Craft knife.
TIP: I like how the sharp tip of this knife blade can slide under the diamante and then be placed onto your project or re-positioned so easily.

 I hope you feel inspired to grab something a little off-beat and turn it into a beautiful something crafty using your Couture Creations dies and basic tools.
Above is a list and direct links to all the wonderful products - or visit the website for more info - and don't forget about all the wonderful inspiration on the blog.
until next time - happy cutting.... Jowilna
