CUT IT UP TECHNIQUE WITH BACKGROUND DIGITAL CUT FILES


I started with the 17turtles X Marks The Spot Background Cut File and cut it from white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo. However, instead of using it as one large piece on my background, I cut it into pieces to let it look like it was hanging off the sides of my page. I still used it as a background element, but this technique helps you get a little more out of a cut file by giving you a different way to use it. I always like to get the most out of my crafty stash, don't you?
