Blog: One Die, Four Ways – plus a sale!

Lifestyle Crafts Basket Die Four Ways | Damask Love

 

Just popping in to share a quick idea for a fun die that I recently bought through Lifestyles Crafts…and since today they are launching a weeklong sale, I thought it’d be the perfect time to post about it!

The Basket Die is a seven-piece template die that I think is great for spring!  Once assembled the die measures 2″ high and 2.5″ across it’s widest points. It’s an itty-bitty basket, but great for Easter treats or springtime favors.

Above, I have a few ways that I styled this die, giving you an idea of it’s versatility.

CLOCKWISE:

{A CLASSIC BASKET} The lattice inserts that come with the basket die make it super easy to create this intricate design…perfect for a basket full of jelly beans.

{AN EDGY GIFT BOX} I went with a bold color scheme and embossed the entire box with a lattice pattern for a funkier look. One of the pieces included with this die is a lid, which I also embossed.

{A MINI PICNIC} By combining the lid and the lattice design, I created a cute little picnic basket favor, which I embellished with a scrap gingham fabric. I embossed the lid with a woodgrain pattern and trimmed the center so that it folds back and looks a bit more realistic!

{WINDOWS MADE EASY} With the open format of the die, I was able to place a circle die on one of the sides and run it through my die cutting machine all at once.

Here’s a quick photo on how the basket die works.

  1. Amber, just so you are aware…the link for Lifestyle Crafts in this post, brings us right back to this blog post and doesn’t connect to Lifestyle Crafts. Did you use these dies in your FUSE?

  2. Oh gosh!! Thanks so much for letting me know! And yep! I totally used this die in my Fuse! I was able to put both the basket and lid dies on the same plate and cut all at once!

    1. Hi Claudia! This die fit in my Big Shot without a problem so I imagine it would also fit in a Vagabond. Since I don’t own a Vagabond, I can’t say for sure, but I think it will fit! Hope this helps!
