Top Note Accordian Book

Another reason why I had such a wonderful day on Friday.... I had a play date with my stampin' friend, Jennifer. Boy, what an experience to have 2 creative minds working together!

Soon after Jennifer walked through my door, she couldn't wait to try an idea that came to her on the drive over. Finding some "scrap" paper, she went to town with her idea on my Big Shot... Her brilliant idea was to accordian fold paper just small enough to fit between the edges of the Top Note Bigz Die and then punch it out to create an accordian style book or card. Between the two of us, this idea evolved over the 4 hours she was at my house. You could say we were Happy Stampin! :)

Here is the book I made:







You would not believe all the different things Jennifer and I came up with to make out of the Top Note Bigz Die! It's another one of those "thinking out of the box" moments. When you have a chance to give the Big Shot Die Cut Machine and Top Note Bigz Die a try, be sure to take a closer look at the scrap pieces! Check out the cover of my book and you'll see a couple scraps that made the brackets on the sides.

Happy Stampin!
