It’s that time again, play time! Today I’m introducing a new Die of the Month. The die of the month for July is Graceful Concertina and it’s unlike anything I have in my stash. On this particular die template, there are connectors on the side so that you connect one panel to the next and the next and so on. As always, it is set up with a rim so that you can have a shadow layer and there is a small inlay panel.
The Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team will be having an Inspiration Hop on July 10th and I have a couple of makes to show you today.
Inspiration for Graceful Concertina
For this die, I worked backward to make sure the die could be used for more than just a card. I think it makes a beautiful card, but it also makes a beautiful card, box, votive holder, envelope and more :-) Since the card made with this template is easy peasy, today in the video I’m sharing how to make a quick box:
Graceful Concertina Samples
This is a concertina of three panels. It could go on and on and on :-) I like to think it could be used to make a mini album and I’m thinking to give it a try in the near future. In particular, I’ve been wanting to make a “10 Things I Adore About You” and I think it will be perfect!!
Because of all the open lacey spaces, I thought this would make a fabulous votive holder using one of those battery operated candles. It did not disappoint and the votive creates a soft glowing romantic light.
And finally, the box. It’s just so different from other boxes, I couldn’t resist whipping one up.
Thanks for stopping in!! I’m finding a lot of peace in creating right now and I hope you are having joy creating too!
