Today I have a tunnel book to share using the same collection from Heartfelt. Tunnel Book….Aww…that sounds something NEW!! I was not known that something of that kind too is there in this craft world. Few months back when I was watching you tube channel I came across a video by Vicky Papaiannou. She is an amazing artist inspires me always with her beautiful Art Journals. I love her work and got inspired by her Tunnel Book idea and gave it a go with Heartfelt Creation’s new release. I found this collection was just so perfect for the same theme. You can look for her VIDEO here.

  • Carol says:

    Hi, Gorgeous book, really lovely work. Did I read this right you put chipboard through your die cutting machine with your spell Binders dies? What machine did you use , how did you do that without damage to them. I would love to try this out.

    • Rajni Chawla says:

      Thank you!!
      Yes here in india we get papers which are 500gsm or above and we call them chipboards only. I generally use 800 gsm chipboard as i get good cut if I run it through my fiskars Fuse. Fiskars Fuse is a heavy machine and i have tried upto 800 gsm chipboard. Sometimes the cut is imperfect…means it doesnot cut completely but it’s Ok…i can simply cut it through using my XCto knife a little. I know its risky but I trust my FUSE. Hope this helps.

  • Carol says:

    Thank you Rajni for the information. I have bought a Fiskars fuse to cut chipboard, what are the plates you use to cut yours please? Thank you.
