.:Review - Lifestyle Crafts Epic 6 Cutting Machine & Dies:.

It's been like an early Christmas around these parts.

I got another fun package on my door last week, and inside was the Epic 6 Cutting and Embossing Machine, along with a bunch of fun dies to use - all from Lifestyle Crafts.

I was anxious to get started, and used it to create this simple neighbor gift.

The machine itself was super easy to use. The instructions came in the box, and were short, simple, and to the point. I love how the machine has a handle on it; that makes it much easier to move!

You start off by using the cutting board - the machine comes with two different boards, and they are clearly marked so that you use the right one, depending on your project. Then you take your die, and lay it face up on the cutting board. I like this little decorative embellishment, and thought it would look great on a band.

Cut your paper, and lay it over the die.

Then put your cutting mat over the top.

The mat is even marked clearly as to which side should be up. I love it when I don't have to think too hard!

All that's left to do is stick it in the machine, crank the handle, and your paper is cut!

I also used these fun brackets to frame the embellishment.

Take your candle, wrap your band around, and add a cute tag - now you've got a darling neighbor gift to give away!

I love this machine! It was very simple to use, and there are soooooo many fun die options; you could be busy creating things for every occasion under the sun!
