Spellbinders - Turning Negatives into Positives

Hello Blog Friends - I am excited about today's Step by Step Tutorial for Spellbinders and hope that you will be too!  What could possibly be negative about Spellbinders - well the answer to that is nothing but I am talking about Negative Dies!! So, what is a Negative Die some of you ask...

A Negative Die is what remains when you have cut your original Die, so often these are pretty enough to use on their own.  I have collected a lot of them and am going to show you one way to use them....there are many different ways - you may have some of your own and I would love to see them.
