I was in a pickle the other day when I noticed I wanted to use some Fancy Pants wing die cuts but I wanted them to be both left wings (you know two wings exactly the same, not a pair of wings). Check out the layout so you can see what I mean, you always get a left wing and a right wing and I needed two left wings for this photo. So I though, I have enough scraps from the papers to create my own wing… a little duplicate wing. So below are the steps to create a duplicate of a die cut in this case a little Fancy Pants wing.
- Select the die cut you want to duplicate and the paper you want to use. Trace the shape w/ a pencil into the selected paper. I used one of the scraps of Fancy Pants paper so the new wing would look like it was part of the die cut paper. NOTE: if you have already used the die cut you want but you still have the die cut paper it came in, you could use that as your template to trace around.
- Make sure you traced it w/ the shadows where you wanted them to be in your die cut. Cut out the shape. I like to cut them a little bit smaller than the traced shape so I don’t have to erase the pencil. You could also trace it on the back of the paper (flipping the figure) but in this case my other side was too busy and I wasn’t able to see the line I traced.
- After you cut it out (isn’t it pretty) sand it out.
- Add glitter w/ a little bit of glue or use stickles (I specially like the Frosted Lace Stickles).
Then just add them to your LO and I do like to add more Stickles somewhere on the LO just to tie things together and of course some ribbon is a MUST. On this layout I used the Zany Zinnia November Kit – Oh, Happy Day.
