Hi everyone, how are you? Today I want to show you a little present. I've decorated a small A6 notebook using the newest Sizzix® Bigz™ Die - Calliope (661243). I really love this big flower!

Tell the Story

If you want to make these gorgeous flowers, you need the Sizzix® Bigz™ Die - Calliope (661243). You don't have to use the platform in your Sizzix® Big Shot™ Express Machine Only (660850) if you work with the Bigz Dies, you only need the 2 cutting plates.

I cut out all the flowers twice in old rose cardstock and twice in vellum. For the leaves I used some green cardstock. To get the flowers in shape I used a flower shaping tool kit.

In the middle I added a big pearl brad. After that I used some distress ink on the edges of the leaves and added a little bit of glue on it. When the glue is wet, you can add some white Prills on the petals.

On the green leaves I used some Dimensional Magic for the drops. The small leaves are made with the Sizzix® Thinlits™ Die Set 3PK - Green Garden (661375).

To decorate this notebook I used some metal corners, metal butterfly and a clasps. The text sticker is from Tim Holtz.
