Squares Cards from Rectangle Craft Dies



Hi bloggers!  Today's video features one of my favourite die cutting tricks!  I will show you how to make a square shape out of a rectangle die shape for more versatility!  










The finished dimensions are 7 3/4"  x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Great card Great trick

I love it when you cut your dies up to make another shape, you just make it look so easy! Really must give it a go as I make a lot of square cards, but I do have a few of your rectangle Dies. I certainly couldn't see where you had done the cuts & the small pearls hide it completely. It makes a lovely card. Thank you for your inspiration Sue.

Hi Sue. Love this card today and I love the way you can make square cards from your rectangular dies meaning you get more use out of them. I have used this idea quite often since you showed us how to do this before.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, I love this gorgeous card and the way you have created a square from the Ruffled Edge Frame. I am pleased to say that I achieved this with the help of a previous video showing a similar alteration to a different die. Once you know where you are going with it, it all makes perfect sense and your videos are excellent at showing this so I thank you.
