Big Shot 3 September class

Everyone had a interesting time learning how to fold and twist the candy wrapper! It is a tricky lil thing! TIP: Make sure to bone fold all your score lines back and forward making very crisp folds. You get deeper score lines if you sie cut 2 at a time, I would not do anymore than that at a time. It may cut thru the score lines.
Especially the sides(just like the milk carton) you must make sure the side folds are crisply folded so that when you go to fold & twist the ends they will go smoothly. This is one of the funnest die cuts so many ways to embellish it. It has been very popular among our group.
Vewe it in the Holiday Mini Catalog pg.10 #120890 $32.95
The matchbox die is also very versatile and can be used for party favors, wedding favors, small gifts on and on... they are super easy to make. You can only cut one at a time on this die.
