Deck your halls with beautiful fabric decorations and cover your Christmas cards with the cutest characters – all with one range of dies! Meet the new Multi Craft Appliqué Christmas Dies from Gemini.
Strong enough to cut through multiple layers of felt, card, cotton and more – these clever dies are perfect for soft craft and cardmaking projects and are sure to be your hardest working craft tool this Christmas season!
What are Multi Craft dies?
As the name suggests, Multi Craft dies are designed to be used for a number of different craft types – in this case papercrafts and soft crafts! The depth of the dies mean they can be used with a variety of materials including cardstock and fabrics such as felt.
Able to cut through a variety of materials including paper and cardstock as well as up to three layers of cotton or felt – the dies are powerful enough to produce a clean cut every time and achieve a beautiful and professional-looking finish.
Are they difficult to use?
Not at all – in fact they’ve been designed to make the art of appliqué as straightforward and accessible as possible! The dies are designed to make easy work of cutting out all the different elements to create appliqué characters.
Each die set includes a handy instruction sheet that features diagrams on how to create each character. There’s also a Bumper Felt Pack available, with 17 sheets in different colours, carefully selected to work with the die-sets so you can create all the characters.
So it couldn’t be easier to get started, making these sets a great gift for someone new to sewing!
What styles are available?
There are two festive die sets in this new collection from Gemini, each designed to make a whole host of cute appliqué Christmas characters. You can create even more characters by mixing up the colour schemes as well!
- Christmas Nativity: 24 dies to create a traditional Nativity scene, featuring Mary, Joseph and the baby alongside shepherds, wise men, an angel and more!
- The Nutcracker and Friends: 23 dies to create characters from the traditional Christmas story including Clara, the Sugarplum Fairy, the Mouse King and of course the Nutcracker himself!
