Berry containers seem to be pretty popular right now. They can be used as party favors, photo props, teacher gifts, or really any handmade gift. I was excited to see that Lifestyle Crafts came out with the Berry Container Die in a recent release. But the fun doesn’t stop there, just look at all the new dies in the Spring Core Collection.
If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter you may have already seen my sneak peek this past weekend. On Saturday I had fun using my Epic 6 and the berry container die to create some adorable handmade gifts.
In case you’re not familiar with the Epic 6 I have a little tutorial on how to construct the berry container. It’s pretty easy to use and doesn’t take very long at all. First you place your die on top of the cutting platform then your paper on top of the die.
Put your cutting mat on top and run it through the Epic 6 machine. You also don’t need an Epic 6, the Lifestyle Crafts dies can be used with any die cutting machine.
Once you have your pieces fold at the perforated line. Add an adhesive to the top of one die cut and place the other die cut in the opposite direction. To finish it off glue on the strips to hold it all together.
