A few extra pounds look good on your die cuts! Simple Halloween shapes were created using points, converting to a poly-arc and curving lines. Import a clip art shape into your screen to use for scale and then tweak the shape to suit your needs. These shapes were cut using double sided smooth cardstock, however if you were doing this project with textured cardstock or patterned paper you would need have a mirror image of your shape. This is an easy fix with the KNK software. Just create your main image, make a duplicate of this image (ctrl d). Click on the duplicated image and go to Layout > Size Move > Mirror > Horizontal. Now you have a exact mirror image of your shape.
Once your shapes are cut you will need to glue them together. BE SURE to leave an opening when gluing the shapes together to stuff with batting. Have some clips handy to hold the die cuts together while the glue dries.
Next…stuff your shapes with batting. Glue the opening closed and embellish as desired. Display them in a bowl, scatter them around for your decor, hang them on a dead tree, make them into a mobile and/or use as a gift tag. Only 3 sheets of 12×12 cardstock were used to create these projects. Embellishments from designer’s stash.
I keep my 15″ KNK Maxx settings at Overcut 15 & Trailing Blade 20 because I only use my machine to cut paper.
Please visit the KNK Gallery on my website to see more projects that I have created using my Klic N Kut. On Saturday (9/28) my blog post will feature Christmas shapes using this method on a smaller scale. I hope you will click on over!
