This 29 piece Thinlits Die set, Patterned Butterfly, is designed by Jenna Rushforth for Sizzix. This die set is going to help you create four gorgeous, intricately designed butterflies that can be used on a variety of projects. These dies are compatible with leading die cutting machines (sold separately). These wafer-thin chemically etched dies are designed to cut, emboss, or stencil a single sheet of paper, cardstock, vellum, or metallic foil. These dies can be used for cards, scrapbook pages, tags, journals, planners, and other paper crafting, home decor, and mixed media projects. The largest die measures 3.125" x 1.5" and the smallest die measures 0.125" x 0.125".
This set will create beautiful, customized butterflies. I only gave it 3 stars because some of the die cut pieces are so tiny that I find them nearly or completely impossible to work with. I will probably stick to the larger die cuts and then embellish my butterflies with pops of color instead of the tiny dots and dashes that the smaller die cuts make.
Pros - the dies cut clean & accurate.
Cons - it's a daunting task to adhere the detail dies.
Tried double sided tape & glue but neither helped.
I enjoy detail crafting but these dies take intricate to a whole new level of frustrating.
Will keep for the butterfly forms but won't be using the details.
The thing I love about this die set is that the main die embosses the design for the smaller pieces into the main butterfly piece. You can cut the individual pieces and glue them on, or you can color those parts with pencils, Pops of Color, markers...whatever your heart desires. The dies cut cleanly and evenly.
I love this little die set, with many pieces. There are a lot of tiny pieces to play with in it and you can put many pieces into making the butterflies with, or without using all the parts to it, it looks like. The dies are tiny, with some larger ones.
I'm so pleased with this die set. Thank you, S.com.
