Die-cutting Essentials 58 bonus bauble project

Issue 58 of the UK’s favourite die-cutting magazine is out now – and it comes with the most gorgeous Exquisite Edges border dies.

We love the magazine, and hope you will too – especially recreating Sandra Rayner’s stunning cover cards.There’s a gorgeous Inspired by… christmas feature from MEl Jess where she showcases her off-the-page skills with a decoration that’s full of sparkle.

  1. Cover one half of a plastic bauble with glue and cover with glitter. Set aside to dry.
  2. Arrange and fit to size the SVG files to fit inside the plastic bauble.
  3. Add cardstock to the cutting matt and die-cut.
  4. Carefully remove your die-cuts from the matt.
  5. Stick the different colours of hair to the unicorn’s mane and tail.
  6. Glue the circle with holes to a white background. This allows the white to peek through.
  7. Begin glueing the tree layers to the background.
  8. Add glitter to the trees to give the look of snow. Once dry, add the unicorn layer.
  9. Sandwich a piece of thread between the unicorn layer and largest circle layer.
  10. Glue the thread to the glitter side of the plastic bauble and cut away the excess. This will hold the unicorn in place.
  11. Stick the sides of the bauble together adding shaker bits before gluing closed.
  12. Add a hanging loop with twine and a bow to finish.


Cut the Unicorns mane and tail hair from 3 from the 3 other colours of card to create a multi-coloured look

We hope you enjoy the project!

Happy die-cutting,


Kirstie McCrum
