Sprinkle out some sequins and use the packing tape (sticky side down) to pick them up. Then gently flip the tape over so the sequins are facing up.
Trim out a small piece of card stock that matches the colour of your sequins.
Apply clear scrapbook adhesive onto the card stock and then press this onto the sequins. Mush it down a bit so that it adheres to the sequins.
Essentially you have just created a sandwich of sequins between the packing tape and card stock.
Run this sandwich through your steel rule die to create your die cut shape.
You may have to use a little bit of liquid adhesive to secure a few sequins that may have come loose from the die cutting process.
Voila! a pretty sequinned embellishment is ready for your project. The packing tape gives the leaf a nice glossy sheen and also keeps the sequins contained when the card is sent in the mail.
There are some very tiny snow flurries dropping as I type this so I know and feel (brrr...) Winter is just around the corner.
Mark December 5th as this is the day SCT's Winter Issue is going to be released! Oh yay, I think that is a good day to whip up some hot chocolate and enjoy the issue in your comfy PJ's!
