The rest of the DT is showcasing these dies in a vertical arrangement, but I saw a tutorial on YouTube that showed this horizontal arrangement and I had to give it a try. I also wanted to show that there is more than one way to use these awesome dies. Just a warning: there will be a bunch of pictures in this post. To begin the flipping process, you pull on the ribbon and the panels begin to flip one by one. It's pretty cool.
You can see that the top panel has flipped to the left and the second panel is showing. You can also see a hidden sentiment has started to appear. The next photo shows the third panel.
And here is the final panel with the bear finishing up his hug.
And here is another look, sort of an action shot:
To finish off my inspiration for you, he is the inside--a sneak peek of a new sentiment set that will be released next month. Shhh. . . Don't tell.
Now I will send you off to finish up the rest of the hop.
