Father's Day: DIY Steampunk Party!

Father's Day: DIY Steampunk Party!

Hi there! Michelle here from Michelle's Party Plan-It with a new party tutorial for you today. Father's Day is just around the corner and I'm planning a little steampunk dinner party for my husband.  If you know me at all, you know that I'm a Steampunk fan and as you may guess, I go crazy for all the Tim Holtz dies. So when I saw his latest Sizzix dies with tons of gears and gadgets, I knew I wanted to incorporate them into my husband's upcoming dinner party.

For my project, I decided to add some brown and black vinyl gears to a few galvanized chargers. Steampunking tableware has never been easier. All you need is a Sizzix Big Shot, Standard Cutting Pads, Magnetic Platform, Gadget Gears #2 Bigz Die, Gearhead Thinlits and Craft Vinyl.

Starting with the Thinlits dies, I create a sandwich. The sandwich for using the Magnetic Platform is; Magnetic Platform, Cutting Pad, vinyl, Thinlits and a second Cutting Pad (not shown). After I made the sandwich, I simply passed it through the machine.

Moving on to the Gadget Gears #2 Bg Die, I simply placed the vinyl on top of the die and sandwiched it between two Cutting Pads and passed it through the Big Shot.

Next, I arranged the die cuts on the charger and then removed the backing to secure them in place.
