Paper Layering™ is a new concept: cut as normal using these “half” Fancy Dies and then fold back the cut pieces to reveal a complete dimensional design.

Once you’ve cut your design, carefully remove the die and fold every other die cut element out. Paper Layering™ dies not only cut, but also create score lines for you to be able to easily fold the cut pieces back. This allows the design to reveal itself like a blooming flower as you open it.

You can cut these in a panel and adhere onto a card base, use it as a fun topper on a gift, or cut these directly into a card base to create a unique window card!

You can use some of these dies to cut the design twice and have a fuller element on your project. When folding the cut pieces back you can also use a bit of glue to secure them in place, add foam adhesive for a pop of dimension, or leave them as-is for even more dimension.
