♥ Six Ways to Use the Charming Cottage Year-Round ♥


Hi there! Welcome to the Amazing Paper Grace Charming Cottage Blog Hop! Join us as each Creative Team member shows you all the different ways you can use the Charming Cottage Box Etched Dies. They aren't just for Christmas! It is such a versatile die set that can be used for many holidays special occasions throughout the year!

The Charming Cottage can be purchased HERE at the Spellbinders Website. UK creators can purchase it at Hope and Chances. Although it has sold out, stock is expected quickly and it can be pre-ordered to ensure receiving one.

 My Projects today!



A sweet little Christmas Cottage. These are great told hold a small gift, money or gift card or even some homemade cookies!


Next up, I made a sweet little schoolhouse which would be perfect for a Teacher.



The Bell is from the Snowflake Doily Etched Dies Set.


Here I made a cottage perfect for the Fall.


These are so quick and easy to make! And did I mention Fun?! Kids would have fun decorating these for Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Easter, etc and making a tiny little village that you could keep for years to come!


And lastly, I decided at the last moment to make a Wedding Favor Box because they are just too fun to make! The die cut insert is from the Charming Tag Pocket Etched Dies Set.  You can even add a piece of vellum or clear acrylic on the inside and then add bird seed for guests to throw or even a battery operated tealight for little lanterns. The possibilities are endless with these! This literally took me 15 minutes to make.



The flower is from the Cinch and Go Poinsettia Set.



Please be sure to Save the Date! Becca will be on Hochanda on September 25th at 6pm and 8pm and on September 26th at 9am, 1pm and 5pm.

We will be giving away one Die of the winner's choice (excludes A Charming Christmas) to 1 commenter picked from the combined comments on all 6 blogs and is open to international commenters. Winner will be posted on the Amazing Paper Grace Blog on Monday, September 24th.

I'm so glad you decided to add the Wedding Favor box - it's my favorite. The exquisite little window, the white poinsettia and the border die used for the roof are all so captivating (and have Becca written all over them!). You nailed it Melissa!
