Beware! This is a photo heavy post! Hubby is out of town so I’ve spent some concentrated time scrap busting the last couple days! Remember my overflowing baby bath tub full of scraps?
And this big bucket of scraps?
I put on an audio book and start pressing and sorting into piles of similar sizes.
And then I started cutting. I always start with the biggest die I want to use. These will be 4 inch finished tumblers. Here is my die.
And run it through. With my studio cutter I can do up to ten layers at a time. Those leftover bits will get cut down with smaller dies.
Not sure how many I have here. Somewhere over 500.
I grabbed the next largest die and did the same.
Here are some of my other scraps all cut down and ready to use.
I even labeled my containers!
But I cannot begin to imagine how long this would have taken without my Accuquilt die cutter and dies. Honestly, I might have thrown all these scraps away rather than facing them! Right now, the regular GO! Cutter is on sale for $199 with free shipping. You can find details on that as well as their other current deals here.
I have more scraps to cut. Have a great day!
