Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this project. Take your black, silver and ochre cardstock and cut out this SVG file of the Scissor and pin cushion. Enlarge the file to 125% follow the instructions on how to put it together.

Take 2 paper coasters and cover them with paper from the paper collection and ink the edges, take a piece of the empty roll and cover this also with the design paper then glue it in between the 2 coasters, now you have a spool. Take the wool and run it around the spool and put a needle on the end and stick this as a decoration in the wool. Take the Scissor and glue this against the spool.

Put some wool in the holes of the pin cushion as if it is stitched. Make some stripes on it using a fine black marker, now you can stick some pins in it and cover the back with some white cardstock. Glue the pincushion next to the Scissor on the spool.

Instructions: The ready top-fold card from white cardstock measures, 9" by 5 1/4". Starting from the top panel, first, choose the paper from the designer paper collection. The top panel measures, 4 1/2" by 8 1/2". To create, we need a color combination of two pattern papers. Cut blue printed paper measuring 4 1/2" by 4" and light-yellow paper measuring 4 1/2" by 4 1/2". Adhere both the strips on a thin rough strip of paper. Neat the edges with the help of paper trimmer, if required. Paste the panel on the white cardstock, giving a slight white border on all sides. Set the Patchwork Pocket & Patterns Die on right and left side of the ready panel and run through die cutting machine to create the windows. Cut exactly same 4 panels from white cardstock and stack them together to get some dimensions. Choose the paper from the designer paper collection, and create the base for the windows.
