Altenew June 2020 Stand-alone Dies Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello, and welcome to Altenew June 2020 Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing brand new stand-alone dies. If you arrived here from the talented blog, Ashlea Cornell, then you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog.

Let’s take a look at my mini book:

Soda top nesting die


Wow, look at edges of this mini-book, so different and new. To create this mini-book, I used two of the brand new dies released today, the Waterbrush Hello Die and the Soda Top Nesting Die.

Waterbush hello die

Here’s how to create this mini-book:

Use watercolor paper and create watercolor circles.

Let it dry.

Use a die cutting machine and cut out 10 pieces (5 pieces of the watercolored pieces and 5 blank pieces) using the biggest soda top nesting die.

Punch a hole using a hole punch.

Add one tubular rivet and secure it by banging it with a hammer.

Die-cut 3 of the waterbrush hello die out of black cardstock.

Adhere the 3 hello die-cut together with liquid glue.

Once that dries, adhere the entire hello piece to the front of the mini-book.

Add some satin gold sequin to the front of the book for dimension.

Voila – you’re done.

  1. Soda top is an interesting shape but yes – making a mini book – what a great idea!! I love the watercolor circles too!!

  2. You really come up with the most clever ways to use your crafting products Kymona. I always look forward to seeing what you create. This is a cool little notebook. Thanks.

  3. Fun project – I love how you used that die to make the book – it is a great shape. Also for introducing me to a new tool – I did not realize there was a new Crop A Dile with different hole sizes and now I must have it!
