Upcycle with Sizzix Techniques and Ideas for using Sizzix Die-Cutting and Embossing Machines by Sizzix

The book, Upcycle with Sizzix by Sizzix has been out for awhile now and yet it's still something that I knew I needed for great ideas for old, new and things I don't know what to do with!
I find this book to be my renew everything I own, that once was great and now just could look even better. Plus, a great way to change one thing into a gift for another. So this book has so many creative ideas and helpful tips to recreate something I find at the thrift shop or any store, to a personalized and FABULOUS looking product!
Inside the book, there are many different creations that the Sizzix Machine could help you cut out and unlike the many books I've read before by Sizzix, this one deals with no cards, but actual objects such as hats, napkins, boxes, and much more! The ideas in this book can be used for so many special occasions, holidays and just changing up the ordinary to something extraordinary! What I love is that it's great to find ideas that my machine can make other than just cards and use for scrapbooking. Now there are three main topics in this book, which make it easy to decide on where or what your going to create. The 4 of these main ideas for upcycling would be the Home Décor, Accessories, Gift Giving, and Entertaining. However, within these main topics there are a bunch of wonderful and creative ideas to recreate some ordinary objects into some fun and stylishing new products.
I already want to try a few, but which one sticks out the best is the Embossed Foil Frame. It's a simple frame, covered with beautiful flowers and dragonflies, as well as the embossed designed that adds such a beautiful look to the frame. Than to place in a photo of a loved one, a pet or just an object I adore would be great! However, I can take the same idea and even just use it to gift someone. However, the best part is that it takes an old frame and recreates it to look like something you'd buy from the store and spend more for. A few others are to decorate pillows, old books and just a bunch of around the house and found goodies or old items that could use a tune up! So with this book, I have ideas that will make me think twice be for tossing something that could be upcycled and renewed to something better!
Finally, there are many different ideas and creative things that can be made from this book, which all uses the many different Sizzix machines for making great gifts, items for parties or just decoration. It's just excellent and the book itself is very attractive and eye catching with ideas to get you motivated!
