Recently I shared a tutorial on creative ways to use circles dies, and these projects were very well received by many of you. I started thinking, I bet my squares dies are feeling left out! Just kidding – what I was really thinking was that we could do some really fun and different things with squares dies that we can’t do with circles, so this inspired today’s tutorial all about squares dies. I have four lovely projects to share, and I’m so very excited about the last one. I think you’ll likely want to create one (or 10!) of them yourself! Let’s take a look!
Creative Ways To Use Squares Dies
For each of these projects, I used at least two of my nesting squares dies (or sometimes all of them) and cut them at the same time on one pass through my die cutting machine. For details on how I did this, and a trick for lining them up easier, make sure to watch along with the video. Let’s take a look at each of these cards.
1. Highlight A Stamped Image Or Designer Paper
2. Create A Frame
I stamped this simple card with the Garden Birdhouses stamps. A square frame would look nice as well, but I decided to turn it diagonally.
3. Make a Fun Background
I went out on a limb and paired the squares with another geometric set, called Sentimental Park. I just love this set, and you can see another project I made with it here.
4. Create A Stunning Quilt Card
This card is my absolute favorite! Do you like it? I used Lovely in Linen designer paper and an embossing folder that is part of our new Basics Embossing Folders set. To make this card, get the dimensions below and scroll down below that for my video tutorial!
