The best thing about the Sizzix is the fact that it cuts so many different materials, and as we all know crafters never throw anything away, so there is always something waiting to be cut up. I had planned to do a lot of sewing this week as I was not looking after little Miss X,but it was not until last night that the machine came out. I could not decide what to make but I thought i would combine the Sizzix and sewing and this is what I made.
They are made from an old Ikea fleece throw ,and a cream fleece that I no longer wear.
I am going to ask my local post office if I can sell them to raise funds for the flower planters I help to maintain around the village. They are made from fleece and the the blue ones are made from a old blanket which I washed several times to shrink it.
I am hoping the red ones may be used for Remembrance Sunday.
The other thing I recycled this week was the paper packing from a parcel sent by Amazon, you often open the box to find a small packet wrapped in so much paper it is almost lost.
Cut flowers with Sizzix
Ink inside of embossing folder
You can leave them flat or scrunch them up, these are waiting to be assembled.
and here are some I made earlier with different papers.
This one is almost like a pine cone in texture
These were made from a light weight card office folder, I purchased 100 for about £5 from Amazon much cheaper than buying craft card . I forgot to mention before scrunching up you spray them with water .
Also from Amazon for a just a little more I bought 1000 unstrung tags ,I was not expecting too much but they are brilliant for stamping on . And I actually quite like the simple effect.

As it is Halloween weekend I will leave you with this photo which I took this morning with my iPhone.
And altered it with the app. Snapseed
