Becca Bit: Punching a Doublesided Lattice Border

I’ve received a couple of emails with questions about how to make the lattice handle I used on the recent Lattice Basket I made.   So, I have a Becca Bit to share with you today.   It’s short and sweet so don’t blink or you might miss it, lol!!

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon!

    Thanks Becca for your Tutorial. It helped a lot.

    I have been playing around with my MS punches–doubling etc. Some are easier than others.

    I love my new Water Lily Punches –So pretty in White. Pink tinted would be great also.

    Have you done a card with them yet?

    Thanks for sharing your talent.ReplyCancel

    Thank you, Becca. I sort of had figured it out, but was still working with the exact measurement. I truly appreciate you clarifying this process.ReplyCancel

    from someone who is mathematically challenged – thank you explanation on the measurements. :-)ReplyCancel

    Awesome tutorial–thanks!!ReplyCancel

  • Pat JandacekFebruary 17, 2010 - 3:15 pm

    I’m a big fan and admirer of yours! Enjoyed how to do something like that precisely rather than “catch as catch can” which is my usual mode. And you may not realize it but you had another Becca Bit in there that wasn’t mentioned: Using the triangle to keep your left edge straight when there isn’t much paper width to put against the top rail of the paper cutter. I’m thrilled with that technique! That will save me a lot of recuts.ReplyCancel

  • AnnaFebruary 17, 2010 - 3:23 pm


    Thanks for the wonderful tutorial.

    I’m in the market for a new trimmer and the trimmer you used seems to be very accurate, would you mind sharing what type or brand it is.


  • ClarindaFebruary 17, 2010 - 3:31 pm

    Wow… Thanks! I have this punch and can’t wait to try it out!ReplyCancel

  • KimberlyFebruary 17, 2010 - 4:41 pm

    What a wonderful idea! Thank you so much for sharing.ReplyCancel

  • SandiFebruary 17, 2010 - 4:45 pm

    Great tip – thank you! Like another viewer, I also loved the “silent” tip using the triangle to keep my paper straight. Have often wished my Tonic cutter had lines closer together and this will solve that problem.ReplyCancel

  • ConniecrafterFebruary 17, 2010 - 4:49 pm

    that is so cool, great tip! Thanks!ReplyCancel

  • annFebruary 17, 2010 - 5:05 pm

    Thank you Becca for being so sharing. Your work is incredible and so are you! Please keep the tips coming. I could have gone through a ream of paper and never figured out how to punch that handle. You make everything so easy.

    God Bless you

  • Marilyn ClarkFebruary 17, 2010 - 5:29 pm

    Thanks for the tutorial. I need a trimmer and would like to know the name of the one you used in the video. Thanks.ReplyCancel

  • Chris KirkpatrickFebruary 17, 2010 - 6:04 pm

    This is just gorgeous! I have ordered what I need to make it but I have 2 questions. How did the box go together and the lid parts and sizes? Nothing like being challenged here. How long is the handle on the basket
    Thanks so much for sharing these with us. I feel very fortunate to be able to do these

  • JaneFebruary 17, 2010 - 6:08 pm

    Thanks for sharing all your talent. I also would love to know the name of your trimmer, I am looking to buy one. Thanks again
    God Bless

  • JennyFebruary 17, 2010 - 6:14 pm

    How cool! I loved all the other little bits in this too…using the triangle is a great idea as well.ReplyCancel

  • LuAnn in AZFebruary 17, 2010 - 10:29 pm

    just a reminder… you are fabulous. Thanks for the tutorials.ReplyCancel

  • HeatherFebruary 17, 2010 - 10:53 pm

    Thank you! I think I took the long road, cos when I made mine, it was wider than yours. I simply measured, as you had, but included the entire depth instead of just the end piece. I then flipped and cut out the lattice. Yours gives the thinner width, which is lovely!
    PS: I have the regular lattice border punch and have lined it up as meantioned to make a wonderful 1″ strip. Cutting the paper at 1-1/4″ gave me a thin line down the middle making it look like a different punch. Cool!
    I’m loving your Becca Bits :)ReplyCancel

  • CindyFebruary 17, 2010 - 11:34 pm

    Thanks – so glad you gave us this tutorial; I was just going to flip and punch again – but you did it RIGHT… But as you’ve said, it can be anyway we want, more space, less space, etc. Thanks again!ReplyCancel

  • Jane TFebruary 17, 2010 - 11:36 pm

    Brilliant idea! Bet it will work with the punches I have. I don’t have the one you have in the video. Gotta give this a try. Thanks for all of the great ideas you share.ReplyCancel
