KNK Maxx Air cuts Modeling Film Pansies – Spring Blooms

20140413_135049_opt

I bought some of this, just to try out – and oh, baby does my Maxxie cut it beautifully! It’s a thick material, it resists tearing, but it cuts very smoothly. The product is called modeling film and it comes in clear (transparent), black and white. You can stamp it and/or color it, and then heat it up to mold it into your desired shape. I made Easter themed napkin rings with it, but didn’t feel that project really did the modeling film justice so I decide to make some 3D pansies. And I LOVE them!

For the one on the left I used more ink, and for the one on the right I used more blending solution to soften it – I can’t decide which I like better.

Materials:

Settings:

  • f = 125
  • v = 200
  • Multipass = 2

Steps:

  1. Cut the modeling film 20140413_124419_opt

  3. Apply heat and shape as desired  20140413_131310_opt
  4. Cool and glue the pieces together
  5. Embellish with glitter, flowersoft, paper shavings, or something similar for the stamens

This was a fun and easy project, and opened my mind up to lots of possibilities with this very ‘cuttable’ product.

  1. Michele, the flowers are beautiful. I’m always looking for flowers to use on my greeting cards. Would these be too brittle/bulky, etc.

  2. Thank you so much. They are not brittle at all, in fact I would say they are somewhat flexible but return to the shape you created when you release pressure. And…you can make these flowers as ‘flat’ or as ‘bulky’ as you desire! I want to make a rose bud next – I think it would be so neat to layer these around in that way!

  3. WOW! What an AWESOME Find! love your flowers! both of them are amazing! thank you for sharing your ideas on this fabulous product!
