Creating your own sticky back die cuts!

Pre made Die cuts are all the rage now in scrapbooking as well there is a plethora of die cutting machines and dies to create your own. I wanted to share with you how I made my own sticky back die cut using X-press Its double side sheets-they are amazing just like doubled sided tape but they come in A4 size so you can cut a piece to any size you need. Lets start. First I chose a die that I wanted to cut out.

I then cut a square of pattern paper, slightly bigger that the die and then peeled back one side of the sheet and stuck my pattern paper down. I then trimmed around the edge of this.

Next I placed my die onto my die cutting machine and rolled it through.

I was left with my pattern paper cut into the shape I wanted and It had a sticky back.

I carefully peeled away the backing paper.

Finally I stuck my diecut down in the position I wanted! EASY.

..and Here is my finished layout.
 You can see I have layered my title and a few embellishments over the top of the die cut!
