Some more inspired by projects

Hi Lovelies,

I'm back again to let you all know about this challenge & to share some more inspiration with you.

Now you are probably wondering what a Mug Rug has to do with Die Cut Divas.  Believe it or not, but I was inspired to make a Mug Rug for my dd's teacher.  I used a Scalloped Nestibility to cut out the tree foliage.  Firstly I ironed some fusible webbing to the backside of the material before running it through my Cuttlebug.  The fusible webbing gives the material some stiffness which helps with the cutting.  I used my sewing machine to zig zag around all the appliqué pieces.

Here I have made a tag explaining what a Mug Rug is.  I used the same X-cut Ornate frame die in two different sizes to make this.  I turned the bottom card 90 degrees so it was on point.  I printed the tag onto lightweight card before running it through my Cuttlebug.  I also punched out a small circle & glued it down before punching a smaller hole out so the ribbon could be threaded through.

How cool is that?  I hope that I have inspired you to see what you can do using this picture.

Thanks for stopping by
Arlene, Dawn, Hannah & Paula.
