|How to make a scrapbook page using an X-Cut shape cutter|
X-Cut shape cutter scrapbook page
The X-Cut Shape Cutter is an innovative system for creating smooth shapes easily and accurately.
Equipment and materials used to make this card.
Place one of your photographs on a cutting mat. Select one of the X-Cut Shape Cutter circle templates and place it over your photograph. Move it around until you get a pleasing composition.
Add the X-Cut shape cutter tool to the template. Hold the template in place. It has non slip feet to help it stay in position. Press down on the cutter and guide it around the template cutting into the picture. The cutting blade can be used on the outside or the inside of the template giving the choice of two different sizes.
Remove the picture. Cut the other pictures in a similar way selecting the best circle template for each picture.
You can create borders by cutting both inside and outside of the same template. It is possible to vary the width of the border by cutting the outside of one template size and the inside of another template size.
We have added the words SKI and SNOW with Alphaletterz chipboard stickers. Lay them out and try various positions until you find one that pleases you.
When you are happy with the layout fix all of the elements in position with card adhesive such as a glue stick.
Silver sticker snowflakes add a finishing touch.
