Hello! Today I have a new Sizzex Die to share with you! This is the Notepad Cover Bigz die, by Brenda Walton. Found at Cut At Home!
This die includes the Notepad Cover, rosette, small scallop, and a butterfly. I made several of these, they are so simple to make. They take less then 10 minutes, and make a great gift! Would also make a great stocking stuffer! 

This is a great project, to use up some of your scrap paper. I prefer to use double sided paper, so the inside looks finished. 

This perfectly fits the 3x3 Post It notes. 

I have also used two of the Notepad Cover's to make a longer journal book, or brag book...whatever you'd like! This book measures approximately 6 1/2 x 3. I enjoy that this die is versatile, and can be used in a few different ways.

On the outside of this booklet, I used the beautiful Tim Holtz Wallflower Idea-ology paper, Which can be found at Cut At Home. I covered all the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Paint, in Vintage Photo.  I added a few rhinestones, from Prima...along with a flower. Added a Tim Holtz ticket, seam binding, and the butterfly that comes with this die. On the inside, I added Kraft paper, along with a couple pieces of the patterned paper. The paper inside is 6x3, and I scored each one at 1/2". This way the paper can fold up nicely.

   With this Bigz die, you can cut cardstock, felt, fabric, foam, magnet, leather, craft aluminum and many other materials. This can be used in most die cut machines. Stop by Cut At Home at: and also their blog for more detail, and lots of inspiration at:
