I’m totally squealing with delight over this giveaway. Oh. My. Gosh. At Alt in January I had the awesome opportunity to see this machine in action & meet a couple of the lovely ladies behind the creative scenes. I’ve been drooling over it ever since.

      I would first use it to make a cool paper banner for my sewing room with inspiring words. Then I had this idea of making a couple of prints to decopauge onto small pieces of wood or something to make decorative hanging blocks. Haven’t completely thought it out yet, but that’s the basic idea.
