Adhere die cuts to create a 3D image.
- Mat board or chipboard
- Die capable of cutting thick material
- Quick grip adhesive
- White glue
- Paper for covering completed die cuts (I used a vintage book page)
- White paint (optional)
Die cut four pieces of chipboard or mat board in desired shape.
Determine where the angled cut needs to be, if project requires it.
Trim all die cuts as required.
Glue shapes together, stacking one on top of another. Let dry.
Tear paper into small pieces. Cover with glue and adhere to stacked die cuts, smoothing to follow the contours of the shape. Continue until the entire piece is covered.
Step 6 (Optional)
To soften the look of the text, cover lightly with white paint.
Step 7 (Optional)
Use completed 3D die piece in project as desired.
