partial die cutting photo tutorial

Today we have a super fun photo tutorial on partial die cutting to create a tag by Elena! Let's check it out!

She used the Critters on the Savanna stamp set and dies for this, but this idea works for any die!


This creates a small lion shape tag that opens for a special message.


Washi tape or even post-its or painter's tape would work to hold the die in place!


Adhere the colored and die cut lion on the tag, and you're done! So cute!!

Thank you so much for this photo tutorial, Elena. It is awesome!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! We have lots of fun family timed planned, and I am excited for that!

  58. The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to
    see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with
    someone!

  78. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long)
    so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for inexperienced blog writers? I'd genuinely appreciate it.
