Big Shot Plus Starter Kit

Hello ...

Today is the day we have a brand new Big Shot Plus starter Kit!  How exciting is that.  So for anyone looking at getting this amazing machine let me tell you a little more about it and the benefit of the fabulous starter kit.

The Big Shot Plus is my go to machine.  Basically because it is large enough (9inches wide) to take all of my dies from the very smallest right up to A4 size it means that I can use it in all my projects.

The pressure on this machine is amazing and because of the steep roller system it means no matter where you place your dies you will get even pressure.  This machine never fails me and it is my one craft item I couldn't be without.

This week see's the launch of the new Big Shot Plus Starter Kit which includes all of these fabulous items.

So today I want to share a project where I have used not only the dies but the new fabric and paper that comes in the Big Shot Plus Starter Kit.

1.  Clean and dry the tin.  Add double sided tape to the top and bottom on the tin.  Trim the fabric so that it overlaps the top the tin and can be adhered on the inside edge.Big Shot Plus Starter Kit


2.  Add ribbon to the top and die-cut the scalloped border included in the Big Shot Plus Starter Kit.  Add twine to cover where the border and the ribbon meet.Big Shot Plus Starter Kit

This would also make a great little gift if filled with sweets or biscuits.  The fabric gives a lovely texture to the tin and really adds some colour to your home decor.Big Shot Plus Starter Kit


The beautiful papers are all designed by My Life Handmade and have a lovely modern, clean finish to them.  The dies that come in the starter kit are the type of dies you will use time and time again and because you get a mix of Thinlit Dies and Bigz Dies it means that you can use them in both your paper crafting and your soft craft projects.Big Shot Plus Starter Kit
