How to Use the Stampin' Up! Framelits in a Different Manner - Part 2

Tuesday I shared an alternative method for using the Stampin' Up! Hearts and Labels Framelits.  If you have used them, I'm sure you've noticed the size between each framelit is 1/4".  In my post on Tuesday, I asked if you prefer the difference in size to be 1/8".  If your preference is the 1/8" difference, and you don't mind tracing and cutting, here's an alternative for you. 


ALTERNATIVE 2:  CREATE A FRAMELIT THAT IS 1/8" LARGER THAN ANOTHER (NOT THE USUAL 1/4")


1.  Select one framelit and desired cardstock and cut out two hearts or labels using the Big Shot. (Reference yesterday's post for the Big Shot sandwich.)
















2.  Lay the framelit onto one of the cutouts with the cutting edge facing upward, and trace around the framelit.

 



3.  Using paper snips, cut along your tracing.

                                                             

4.  Now you have a cutout that is 1/8" smaller, except at the very top.  I like the look, don't you?
