Good morning sweet friends! Just in case you didn’t see this before, today I’m sharing the tutorial for the Bella Rose Die Cut Ornament on my blog – it was the first in the Die Cut Ornament series. (I also have more Creative Team Inspiration with more cards made with the Chantilly Lace Collection.) I posted this picture on Instagram and several of you have made similar ornaments – that simply makes my heart sing! It’s an easy make with eight cuts of the Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame – except this time I use the inner oval portion along with inserts from the Lunette Arched Borders set. It certainly makes for a signature look ornament that people will notice. One reader even said to hang it over the door with mistletoe for a kissing ball. I love all the ideas that flooded in and I hope you’ll snag the info for a try next year or even this year as the icing on the cake.
How to Assemble Your Bella Rose Die Cut Ornament:
Gather a tassel, bow and embroidery thread. Cut eight ovals with inserts from S6-129 Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame. I used the heart motifs from S5-330 Lunette Arched Borders for the insert on mine. I also cut two small snowflakes from S3-302 Die D-Lite Snowflakes.
Using Glossy Accents, glue all eight folded elements together. Do this by placing one folded element on table, glue exposed top and stack another element on top of glue. Repeat until all eight pieces are finished.
Glue snowflakes back to back on thread with tassel and glue thread to edge of stack.
To finish, close the circle by putting glue on the last piece on top and gluing it to the first piece on the bottom of the stack. Embellish by putting a button and bow on top. Your ornament will lay flat for storage, as shown below. If you want your ornament to retain a consistent shape, simply arrange the gores so that they are even and add a dollop of hot glue at top of ornament.
