Get in the fes­tive spirit with a trio of sweet de­signs us­ing one die set

Three in a row

Layer mul­ti­ple baubles from plain card, to cre­ate your own 3D top­pers. Ap­ply a fi­nal layer of colour, glit­ter or pat­terned pa­pers, as shown here then em­bel­lish the baubles with small ad­he­sive gems or liq­uid pearls. You can also off set darker die cuts un­der­neath, to cre­ate a shadow ef­fect.

Touch of sparkle

The shape of the baubles makes this die set ideal for cre­at­ing shim­mer­ing re­peat pat­terns for fes­tive makes. Cre­ate back­grounds for your cards plus Christ­mas home decor or scrap­book­ing pages. Fill in some of the baubles with waste bits, cut from pat­terned pa­pers, to re­ally make this de­sign stand out.

Hang­ing around

Dec­o­rate your Christ­mas tree and dress up gifts with these in­tri­cate 3D baubles. The ones shown here only re­quire six die cuts, folded in half, although you could add more. Se­cure them ver­ti­cally or hor­i­zon­tally to a piece of string, to cre­ate a fes­tive gar­land. If you don’t have round pearls to add on top, sim­ply glue two ad­he­sive pearls to­gether with the thread in the mid­dle.
