Die Cut Rainbow – neat assembly trick

Don’t you just love it when you find a neat little trick to make tasks that bit easier?

A couple of weeks ago, I was using the ever so lovely Rainbow Builder Thinlits in my weekly class and I noticed one of my lovely friends using this neat little trick to assemble her die cut rainbow. (thank you Anne)

I couldn’t believe I hadn’t thought of it myself!

Normally I would use the Stampin’ Up! adhesive sheets for fussy die cutting but as each segment of the rainbow is cut in a different colour I thought that was too wasteful.

So here is the trick …..

Die Cut Rainbow:

Use a piece of scrap cardstock large enough to take the largest rainbow die cut. Apply Snail Adhesive or Fast Fuse Adhesive all over this scrap.

Now assemble the die cut rainbow pieces directly on to this.

Once complete, simply hand cut the assembled rainbow in one piece and use it on your project as desired.

Here is a little card I made as a class project this week. I just love the colours. I just love rainbows! What do you think of it?

It wasn’t quite so much fun though when my lovely ladies in class were too lazy to stamp and fussy cut their own letters for the rainbow sentiment. Although, I think they just thought it was funny to get me to do it for them. They’re a naughty lot! lol.

I didn’t mind really. It just gives me something to complain about. lol. 😉

I actually really love the Labeler Alphabet stamp set. It is so useful and the font is so beautifully quirky.
