Creating a 3D shape using die cut images

Today’s #TuesdayTip is a very simple tutorial to turn your die cut paper shapes into a 3D embellishments for your home decor, cardmaking or scrapbooking projects.

This technique can be used on many different shapes, it works particularly well on hot air balloons, butterflies and hearts. I even made a Christmas themed card using triangle bunting dies.

How to create a 3D shape using die cuts

  • Cut your chosen shape five times.
  • Fold two of your shapes in half creating a crease in the centre and stick two halves together – as seen in the picture below.

  • Repeat with the other two die cut shapes
  • Fix the die cuts together to make one 3D shape.

  • Attach the fifth shape to the reverse to stabilise the finished shape
  • That’s it. Now you can fix it to your project
