Thanks & Beyond

Item 164397

Express your gratitude and add something special to each of your crafting projects with the Thanks & Beyond Dies! Cut out a butterfly outline and a separate detailed piece that nests inside to create a partial pop-up feature. You can also add the sentiment to any card front or use the hexagon label for whatever you need. We love how these dies offer more options to not only three Paper Pumpkin kits but also any other crafting projects. Please note that the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine is not included and can be purchased separately.

Add-on includes:
* 4 dies

Make the most of your Paper Pumpkin kit with a Paper Pumpkin add-on! Combine this additional set of dies with the Delicate Wings, The Best There Is, and Life Is Sweet Paper Pumpkin Kit for an extension of the kit's crafting experience. Pair with our other products for even more creative options!
