The topic: One of my first SVG Cuts


I've kind of been saving up the kits because that spend ten dollars and get one free thing has me hooked (a new kit/set every Friday). Well, the first one I ever tried was from the High Skies kit (the link isn't going to the page like it's supposed to, so just do a search for "high skies").

I fell in love with the hot air balloon.

Yep, that's made with paper. Cardstock, actually, a little heavier than paper.

I used some beading cord/thread for the tassles and for the basket, I used my Sizzix Big Shot embossing machine (it's not electric, just a hand crank) and one of the folders that has a checkered pattern.

I took the photo with the balloon hanging down from the swing, then cropped it and removed the string from the picture. Looks pretty real, huh?

wow I thought it was real. That’s awesome!
