OK, how do you use them??? I have quite a few sets now, and I just do not see how the smallest one or possibly two are even USABLE.

they don't fit most stamps,,,,

I have YET to use most of them,,,,,

anything I haven't thought of so I get some good use out of the whole set???

I would love to know as well!!! The only thing I can think of would be to use them for a name/label??? One word stamp? Any examples would be great too!!! (good question!!!!)

Individual letters, link them together with rings.

Collage side by side.

Make a banner with individual words on each one and string together

Umm.... I'm sure there's LOTS more uses.

I agree that they tend to work well on smaller scale projects - ATCs, small framed art, small tags on cards, etc.

Here's an example of a small tag on a card. I wanted it to look like the price tag on a dress

Here's another where I used the smallest in the set.

On this one, I used the smallest to create the book pages for this mini book on the card.

I use them for little tags I also like to cut a bunch of them and use them as boarders or accents on pages.

I've used my smallest nested circles and scalloped circles for flower centres. I have also stamped single letters on them and made a title out of them.

I love the ideas already mentioned! You could also use them as a faux envelope seal, either by itself or covered in dimensional/glossy accent or layers of embossing powder to give it some height & gloss. I also saw a technique somewhere where the lady built up layers of embossing powder then while it was still warm made an impression with a charm or stamp which gave it a wax seal look.

I'd feel better if I could remember where I saw it! I'd put my money on YouTube. I never realised that you could build up layers of embossing powder like that :-)

I use them by typing my own words on the computer using the smallest font. Then I print them out on paper, cut to the size I want & last put the paper thru the big shot machine.
I sometimes have to play around with the size of the letters depending on what nestie I am using. I may type the words with different size fonts on the same paper. The words don't have to be black. I prefer a color.
Hope this helps.

forgot to comment earlier- YES YOU CAN USE A COUPON ON THEM! AND if you know someone who is a teacher they get an additional 15% off. Makes them UNDER $15/set when they're 40% off!

Um, Tiffany? That was just cruel. NOW I WANT THEM ALL. I only have 2 sets, but I love them so much I almost want to put them under my pillow at night.

I was at J's and specifically asked for them, but they said they no longer carry them. Dummies.

At M's they just set up a new wall by the die-cutting machines and all the hooks are labelled "Spellbinders". Can't wait to see what's going there because it was a 6-foot section!! Wheeeeee!

My J's had a bunch on clearance for $14.95 and then they had the rest on sale for 40% off which ALSO made them $15. So, um a 5cent difference? WTH? I asked about why they were clearancing some of them and was told that they're not carrying them anymore.

Strange that Holly's store on the far east coast is JUST getting them and my store on the far west coast is no longer going to sell them.

BUT I will be there next week so I'll see if they've got new ones or replaced them with something else. They've completely redone my store so I may have a hard time finding them. I don't like it!

I'm on the far east coast, too, and mine says they don't carry them anymore. They've also moved a lot of stuff around.

Trying to make sense of it all gives me a headache.

I wonder if they will be coupon ineligible. Kind of like the cricut cartridges. My HL is really nasty about coupons.

If this hasn't already been said.
Use the cricut to cut pot a font slightly smaller than the smallest nestie and glue each letter to the smallest nestie as a dimensional alpha.

Great for numbers or letters or a full title.

Don't mention trhe prices you pay. I was over the moon to get nesties on sale for $25 NZ. And there is very little differnce bewtween the $US and the NZ. It's getting to the point where shipping from the superstore will be cheaper.

Thanks Kitty! I see an hour drive in my near future I think I'll call them first! I can find them for $30 to $35 online but hate paying that much! I want a couple more of the labels.
