Product Name: Jillibean Soup Corrugated Shapes
Jillibean Soup Corrugated Shapes are die-cut pieces of dimensional cardboard. They are non-adhesive and come in seven different styles. The four brand-new styles that premiered at Winter CHA 2010 include:
The three original styles include:
All of the shapes are a kraft color. There are 20 pieces per pack in assorted sizes of shapes. On the back of the packaging you can view the exact shapes that are enclosed.
This product really allows you to use your imagination; here are some of the benefits I discovered.
There is a certain appeal to using dimensional die-cut shapes; they add depth to any project. They also come in such a variety of shapes that it is easy to find one to match almost any theme.
Considering that you get 20 pieces per pack, they are very affordable. Cost per piece is less than $0.20 each, so you don’t have to feel guilty about using several on one project.
I believe that the best benefit is that these shapes are completely alter-friendly. They accepted every medium I tried and held up well.
The only disadvantage I found was that they didn’t come with their own adhesive backs. However, every adhesive that I tried attached the shapes very well, including tape runner, glue and glue dots.
In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend this product. These shapes are tons of fun to alter and add to almost any type of project, because they are so versatile.
