I bring you this post with great excitement.......I had to try out Stampin' Up!'s Designer Fabric and well........I LOVE IT. I was getting some inspiration from a upline DVD the other day and a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator showed a Designer Fabric creation she had made....a designer fabric scallop square coaster. Thanks for the inspiration Winona! OMG! I loved it so of course I had to get the products to re-create this too cute project. Below are a couple of pictures that I took while making these cute Christmas gifts.
Here is an opended package of the Candy Cane Designer Fabric. I love the color and fabric combo you receive. Wow! Look at all that fabric. Isn't it great.
The Scallop Square Bigz Die is a perfect die to make these cute Scallop Squares. If you have the Big Shot die-cut machine this die is a must. Even if you don't own the Big Shot die-cut machine I would suggest getting one. You can do so much with it.
Here is a picture of the supplies I used to make the Candy Cane Designer Fabric Coasters.
Here are the Candy Cane Designer Fabric trio I made. Too cute! These are so easy to make.
Stampin' Up! Supplies used:
Accessories: Candy Cane Designer Fabric, Big Shot Die-Cut Machine, Scallop Square Bigz Die, SNAIL adhesive, Linen Thread, Button from Candy Cane Designer Bigs Buttons
Here are the step by step instructions
Step 1 - Cut a piece of 5" x 5" Candy Cane Designer Fabric or fabric of your choice and place over top of the Scallop Square Bigz Die. Remember when using a Stampin' Up! Bigz Die if there are no scoring lines which the Scallop Square Bigz Die does not have, you can cut more than at a time. I think I was able to cut 4 squares at a time. Yahoo!
Step 2 - Run Scallop Square Bigz Die and Candy Cane Designer Fabric through Big Shot Die-Cut Machine
Step 3 - Flip Candy Cane Designer Fabric Scallop Squares over so that they are facing down on your stamping surface. Then place adhesive either on each scallop around the edges of just inside of them. I used Stampin' Up! SNAIL adhesive. You want to do this on bot insides of each Candy Cane Designer Fabric Scallop Square.
Step 4 - Take a little bit of batting or poly-fiber fill and place on the inside of one Candy Cane Designer Fabric Scallop Square just inside the adhesive line. You do not need to use a lot of batting or poly-fiber fill as we don't want these coasters to be too thick.
Step 5 - Take the Candy Cane Designer Fabric Scallop Square that doesn't have the battie or poly-fiber fill and place on top of the other one. It is easy as all you have to do is match up the scallop edges of each square and it should be adhered together straight.
Step 6 - Take a needle and Linen Thread and sew an 'x' in each corner. A Linen Thread tip - you can separate the linen thread so that is it not so thick.
Step 7 - Take a button from the Candy Cane Big Designer Button collection and sew it in the bottom right corner using a needle and linen thread.
