The Fiskars Fuse

For the past few months, those of us who create projects for Fiskars to use as promotional content have had to be tight lipped about something really cool.  I couldn't even share it with my real-life friends.  When they came over to my house, I had to hide this new tool Fiskars sent me.  The actual hiding part wasn't difficult.  I just had to stick it in my craft room and tip a few piles of materials from other projects I hadn't put away yet over on top of it.  The not telling part was the difficult part!  If you haven't seen it yet, it has been revealed so I can finally share some of the things I have been working on.  First, here is a short video that shows the Fiskars Fuse and how to use it. 

I have never owned a diecutting machine before and I had it out of the box and using it in literally 10 minutes. I went through a brief step-by-step how-to-use-it/how-easy-was-it-to-use survey that they sent me using a variety of materials from regular cardstock to heavy chipboard.

The next time I got the Fuse out, I made this.  A tutorial for making this thank-you card can be found on the Fiskars website.

I also made this birthday banner by combining the letterpressing/diecutting with some fabric.

And I used the Fuse to "letterpress" (it really just stamped) and diecut some fabric to make a scrapbook layout embellishment

I'll share more of the things I've created using the Fuse here in the future.  If you'd like to see more now, Fiskars has a gallery on their website of some of the projects we've made.  You can see it by clicking here.
