Our 2017-2018 Inspiration Book & Catalog has sooo many fun goodies! Today only, enjoy 30% off 3 of our favorite Steel Rule Dies: Milk Carton, House, and the Matchbook.
These dies create life-like shapes. Get creative with them as you bring paper to life. Note: these steel rule dies require a die cutting machine with an 8.5 X 11 platform, like our Journey Platinum. Since they do require a bit of assembling we have Product Spotlight videos for each die. We list them below as we explore a couple projects in a bit more detail below.
Milk Carton Steel Rule Die
Watch Michelle Woerner, FSJ’s Concept Designer, assemble this Milk Carton die here.
Yesterday we showed you a Christmas holiday take on this die. Keep using this die throughout the year. You can even create one for Valentine’s Day too! Yes, it may be a bit early for Valentine’s projects. However, remember you can save this project for later. Scroll over the photo to add it to a Pinterest board, use the Share button at the end of this post to email the post to yourself or add it to your Facebook timeline. You can even find this post again later using our blog search function (at right).
Die cut the Milk Carton and then die cut out a Heart Felt Die. Place a Clear View Sheet on the inside of the carton to keep that open space a closed window.
Let’s decorate! Create a fun Be Mine tag with the Be Mine Stamp & Die Set. We stamped and embossed the hearts with Journey White Embossing Powder to make them pop! Embellish the tag with a Summer Fun Chip and Whip Cream Sparkle Tape. Loop a Bubble Gum Checks Satin Ribbon through the tag and clip it to the top of your carton with a Jumbo Wooden Clothespin.

House Steel Rule Die
Watch Michelle assemble the House in the video below.
How adorable?! The House Steel Rule Die makes a cute handmade gift or home décor. Die cut the roof from Journey Brush Gold Cardstock. Then curl and sew Special Day Organza Ribbon along the edge. Add a 2nd layer to the roof that’s embossed with the Layered Scallops Embossing Folder. Cut the roof panel in half and adhere both sides with scallops facing down so it looks like tiles. Place a strand of Journey Gold Thread in between the halves to cover the seam.
Adhere your roof to your assembled house.
Decorate the outside of your house. Give it a pretty door with a Heart Punch and Fashion Gold element for the door knob. Grow a garden in the front with branches from the Border Details Die Set and flowers from the Summer Pretties Punch. Make it unique!
