5 Unique Ways to Use Your Dies Details
#1 – Creating Custom Frames Large or small, create custom size and shape frames using your dies. This easy technique allows you to expound on the use – and purchase – of your dies to make frames for card and scrapbooking. Mix and match the shapes with scallop dies for an even more unique look.
