Pyramage Die Cutting Tutorial

Pyramage Box
           I have a deep fascination for 3 D decoupage/ Pyramage technique and have made many projects using ready made printed image sheets and even stamped images. [You can see examples here : Accordion Pop Up Card3 D Decoupage Tutorial ]

          But fuzzy cutting  can be tiresome at times and here is an easier ,quicker way to create the 3 D decoupage look using dies.
Pyramage Die Cutting Tutorial 
I saw this technique at Splitcoast Stampers using stamped images and they called it Telescoping image technique . I tried adapting it to pattern paper and loved how easy it was!
For this technique you need 2 stamped images or  pattern papers and 4 nesting dies.
Pyramage Tutorial
I have used 4 dies from the  Spellbinders Labels 8 die set. You can use any nesting die set you have.
Pyramage Tutorial
Place the 3 larger dies on the paper/image and remove the middle one. Tape the other 2 to the paper and cut through your die cutting machine.

You will get die cuts as shown below

Replace the dies on the 2nd sheet of pattern paper/ image and this time use the smallest of the 4 too ie if you are labelling the 4 dies as 1,2,3,4 from smallest to largest, you will be using numbers 1 and 3.
Pyramage Tutorial
Tape the dies 1 and 3 to the paper and die cut.

You will get 4 die cut frames as shown .These are now ready to be stacked atop each other using foam tape. I found it sturdier to stick the die cuts with the center aperture to a similar die cut before layering.

Isnt this a cool technique to make a 3 D pyramage image!

I added  my pyramage image to a glitter foam die cut and used it atop a shaped box made using the same Spellbinders Labels 8 die using this tutorial : Easy Hinged Box Tutorial
