Adding to all the fun that is the Sizzix Alterations Sidekick, Tim Holtz has released six sets of Side Order dies and the best part is that they are available TODAY! How cool is that? You don't even have to wait!
Below are the sample tags I had the privilege of making for Tim's live Facebook reveal. There were several questions about how I made the frames for the shaker tags, so I took a few pictures that are at the end of this post that I hope will explain how I made the frames.
Making the frames for the shaker cards is actually really easy! I started by pulling out the following die sets: the tag that comes with the Sidekick, the Labels set and the Gift Tags set.Labels set, you will notice that most of them are too big or small for the shaker tag frames, but there are two in this set that work well. The large postage stamp and the one I've termed the bulging rectangle.
Gift Tag dies all fit on the Sidekick but not all will work for a shaker tag frame. Some are too wide or too tiny, so check carefully to see which fit on the tag.
For the birthday shaker, I cut a bunch of the stars from for the hat
For the Valentine tag, I cut a bunch of the tiny hearts that go on the envelope.
I colored some of the Rock Candy Distress Glitter with Butterscotch Alcohol ink
and added that as sand in the Summer shaker tag.
I cut a bunch of the stars from the banner for the 4th of July shaker tag.
This shaker has a bunch of little "eggs" that are actually the bird's wings. I speckled them
by using the Distress Sprayer with the Ground Espresso Distress Marker.
