Upcycle with Sizzix
These beautifully upcycled projects have been created by our talented staff crafters, but don’t worry — the projects in this book can be embraced by crafters at all levels. Whether you replicate a project exactly, use a particular project as a jumping off place, or just use the volume as ingredients for a future creative recipe, you’re sure to find the pages that follow to be an inspirational feast!
Our team worked their magic and transformed items like old lamps, tablecloths, frames, and watchbands into stylish home décor, jewelry organizers, and bracelets. Perfect for you to enjoy or give as gifts, there’s a little something for everyone.
Lay of the land
Rather than taking you through each project step-by-step, Upcycle with Sizzix is an idea book that will spark your creative fire. Each project photo is accompanied by helpful hints to help you make the project yourself, including the dies used, the upcycled item that was used, and any special notes.
Are you new to die cutting and embossing? You’re going to love it. Our machines, dies, and embossing folders are easy to use — you’ll be hooked! The creative possibilities are truly endless, and talk about a time saver! Why spend ages cutting out 30 paper hearts by hand when making cupcake toppers? You can die-cut them in a minute or two.
You’re also going to love the variety of materials you can cut. our steel rule dies cut materials like fabric, leather, magnetic sheets, burlap, vinyl, foam, felt, compressed sponge, matboard, aluminum cans, and more. If you’ve never crafted using steel-rule dies, your world of crafting possibilities has just blown wide open!

It's more like photographs of finished projects, nearly all in distracting settings, a list of the materials used and an occasional tip, such as use colored markers.
No instructions. You have to refer to the Sizzix or other site to find out which die was used and so on.
Good for a page-through, but has no substantive value.
This is a great resource for anyone who just needs a little inspiration. The book includes a chart that shows system compatibility for the various Sizzix machines with the die cuts and embossing folders, which is helpful if you own a lot of dies from other companies (like I do). The book also gives the reader information on what type of materials can be used in the embossing folders and/or cut by the die cuts. This is a great time saver when planning a project and trying to figure out what materials you will need.
The photographs in this book are excellent. I especially appreciate that they list which dies are used in the projects. I really like this book and recommend it to anyone who wants an idea source book to inspire projects.
