An out of this world pop up box card flew to the top of our list
with its red rocket and star filled backing paper.

Hello and Good Morning! Our new challenge here at The Male Room - TMR#61 is a stash challenge. We want you to use your DIE CUTS on your masculine projects. There are lots of different techniques to using die cuts - you can you them just as they come out of the die, or you can use the dies in a variety of creative ways - it's up to you the technique you use, but make sure we can see how the die cuts have been used. If it's not obvious - tell us!!!


Here are some inspiration projects from the Design Team:
