When I received my free die and stamp set with this month’s Die-Cutting Essentials (issue 25), an idea popped into my head. Why not cut all these shapes out in felt to play with? I remember a happy childhood, spending hours playing with Fuzzy Felt.
I went straight to Ebay and ordered a pack of 25 assorted A4 sheets of felt (only £6.10!). I already had 2mm thick A4 chipboard (for the base boards) and everything else that I needed. Then I had to wait for the postman to deliver my felt…luckily the wait was short and it arrived the next day.
The tutorial is down below and my children’s hands appear a few times – they wanted to help and couldn’t wait to play with it. They had hours of fun playing and changing the scenes around. I will always look at dies differently now, as I will probably want to make more felt shapes and add to the collection! I’m on the lookout for dinosaurs and spaceships 🙂
I have stored all the shapes in empty Stampin’Up! cases. They are DVD sized and come in a pack of 5. They will also fit perfectly on the shelf and easy to tidy away. These will certainly be useful on a rainy day or taking away with you.
