I love that Audrey took these dies and created this awesome project in her own very elegant and individualized crafting style! There are lots of cool project ideas for things you can make using the shape cutters I designed on the Sizzix website which are done in my signature outrageous style. I really like how this designer took those same shapes and incorporated them into a project which reflects her own unique signature style!  Here you can see how Audrey cleverly used the mini envelope as an interactive design accent on the front of a handmade greeting card!

Crafters may purchase this fun collection of shape cutters in independent and chain craft supply stores as well as on Amazon.com. These shape cutting tools work with a variety of machines, but their small size and portability make them ideal for using with the Sizzix SophistiCut die cutting machine.
