It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
As a party planner, I love themed parties and Sizzix dies are perfect for carrying out a theme in all aspects of party planning. I recently styled a Christmas photo shoot and used the new Stacked Snowflakes Bigz L die and Sizzix Big Shot for all of the tabletop paper decor.
This die is so versatile, with snowflakes in four different sizes, you can choose to stack them or use them on their own!
For my snowflakes, I started with gold, silver and ivory glitter card stock and made several snowflake die cuts by creating a sandwich and passing it through the Sizzix Big Shot. A sandwich consists of 1 Standard Cutting Pad, the Stacked Snowflakes Bigz L die, card stock and 1 additional Standard Cutting Pad.
I always like to stack at least 2 pieces of paper or card stock each time I make a sandwich, so I can get twice the number of die cuts with one pass.
For cupcake toppers, I stacked and glued all four snowflakes on top of each other and then glued them to a paper straw. I then placed them in festive cupcakes with matching cupcake wrappers.
For smaller cupcake toppers, I stacked and glued three snowflake die cuts then glued them to a paper straw.
I used the largest of the four snowflake die cuts and coordinating ribbon to dress up a clear cupcake box.
For straw toppers, I glued the two smallest snowflake die cuts to a paper straw.
Of course, the Stacked Snowflakes Bigz L Die isn't limited to Christmas Parties, I know I will be using this die frequently for year around Frozen themed parties.
Thanks for visiting and Happy Holiday Crafting!
