This was inspired by a project I saw on the Sizzix blog here by Tiffany Johnson. This project was the reason I bought the Sizzix Bigz 657689 Fence die. As it is a Bigz die it cuts through chipboard which I used as the base for the fence which I connected with little strips of duct tape, and then covered the chipboard and duct tape with more fences cut from thick card. This makes a fully flexible joint so the fences can be arranged in various ways. The fences were inked with Distress ink and decorated with various dies, paper flowers and metal charms
I used a set of rubber stamps to create the apron, watering can and tools. The little friend sign was made using one of the rectangles produced when the fence die is cut. These are a really handy size for sentiments and I've used this die just to create the waste rectangles. I added a sentiment panel on the back of the centre fence where I wrote a birthday greeting. It was a fun project to do, and my friend loved it.
