How to Tutorial by Becca Feeken on How to Assemble Spellbinders S3-251 Round Fold and Go Die and Spellbinders S3-250 Angled Fold and Go Die - details at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=31907
Good morning sweet friends!!   I wanted to pop in and share a step by step walk through of how to use my new Fold and Go Flowers – S3-251 Vintage Elegance Round Fold and Go Flower and S3-250 Vintage Elegance Angled Fold and Go Flower.  The design team has been posting lots of inspiration using the flower and once you see how easily it goes together, you’ll be able recognize the lovely ways it is being used.  There are many pieces in the Vintage Elegance Collection that were designed to be embellished with this flower.    Today I’m using it as a focal piece on a mini card ensemble made with Spellbinders S5-289 Filigree Booklet Die.   I’ve received many puzzled looks from people when actually looking at the die and then a look of “aha” when they see how it is assembled.  Since it is a double decker flower and shows two sides of paper, that gives you a lot of options and of course you can always use a solid piece of paper.   The folding (along score lines) gives the petal it’s final shape and a unique texture not seen among other flowers.  Double decks add lift to the flower but it’s so great because these flowers can be compressed to go through the mail flat!How to Tutorial by Becca Feeken on How to Assemble Spellbinders S3-251 Round Fold and Go Die and Spellbinders S3-250 Angled Fold and Go Die - details at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=31907I consider myself flower challenged, I like to design dies for flowers that are easy to put together and will look the same every time you make them and you don’t have to be a flower master to master them. Dig through your stash and find a paper that has design on both sides – small patterns work best.  You might even try a solid/print combinations.  No worries if you don’t have any double sided paper – one color works just as well.  The set comes with four sizes of petals – I often run the whole set, all sizes at once, and reserve the extras for later.  You need eight same sized petals for each flower.

Let’s get started:

How to Tutorial by Becca Feeken on How to Assemble Spellbinders S3-251 Round Fold and Go Die and Spellbinders S3-250 Angled Fold and Go Die - details at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=31907
1.  Cut eight petals from the desired petal size.

2.  With right side facing up – identify ”x” shaped score line that is intersected by a horizontal line. Fold right sides together along horizontal line then open petal and bend wrong sides together along each side of ‘x’. Bend petals together again and tuck the horizontal arms to the inside so that the result are two stacked petals that come together at a point.

3.  Fold all petals in this manner in preparation for glue – Glossy Accents (recommended).  Begin by holding a petal with folded point at bottom.

4.  Place a drop of glue inside the left valley.

5.  Seat next petal into the glued side with the largest petal all the way to the back and the small part of the petal clicks into the valley. Push all the way in until the new petal no longer moves.

6.  Repeat steps 4 and 5 until there is one petal left.

7.  Put a drop of glue on the left and right side valleys then insert into the final slot.

I’ve made many sizes of these flowers and now reach for them as embellishment on gift bags and wrapped presents!

    Hi Becca
    Flowers seems to have taken over my crafty life at the moment I really can’t get enough of them. These look great … I’m sure they will become another addition to my flower colection. I love the double feature. Really clever.

I am pouring myself, my hours and my days into creating the kind of cards I’ve always dreamed of and it doesn’t matter how long one card takes to create!

    I have been looking for things that don’t thicken up a card I will be mailing. Sometimes, all the thick flowers are a little over-the-top for the occasion on non-occasion celebrated. These would be perfect! With the right designer paper, they would work well on a man-card, too. Good show, Becca!!ReplyCancel

  • Sandy ArtmanMay 30, 2017 - 11:16 am

    Hi, Becca,
    Well, this is inspiring…you made me aware of this product, showed me how easy it comes together and highlighted that it lays flat, which is a feature that I prefer when adding flowers to my cards. This die will surely become part of my craft supplies!
    It’s been great to see posts from your creative team this past week, also! I’m gearing up my card-making right now so it is great having so many beautiful samples to fuel my imagination.

Hi there folks.  I’m sad to say that I missed Day of Giving Friday yesterday, but I’ll make up for it in the next week or so with a giveaway; I’m spending some holiday time with my family.  Do you want to know how long it takes to make a card when you know company is coming or you’re going out? Well the answer to that is it takes forever.  You can’t seem the find the certain color you are looking for; you misplace place your die; you run of glue runner – these are all the kinds of things that happen when you just gotta get it done.  At some point I spend more time spinning my wheels than going anywhere, that’s when I stop.  Instead, today I thought I would show you something I pulled together to celebrate a new hashtag that Spellbinders is supporting on Instagram – #neverstopmaking using the Spellbinders Vintage Elegance Filigree Booklet Die.


Book Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbiners S5-289 Filigree Booklet Die - details at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=31894
There are so many makers out there – papercrafts, needlecrafts, sewing, mixed media and the list goes on.  I’m the type of gal that has lots of hobbies and as you can tell from my last post, I now have the opportunity to throw some love into books.  That passion has always been there but now that I have a die that accomplishes something I was loathe to do by hand, well, it’s a perfect match.  This was made by stitching the pages together, covering mat board and taping everything into place with binding tape.  This one I did without looking at anything, I just let it go together how I thought books looked.

This right here is therapy for me.  I hope you enjoyed the pictures I shared.  And say, if you make anything with my dies and share on Instagram, be sure to tag it #amazingpapergrace and #neverstopmaking.   Oh, and where ever you buy your dies (or crafting supplies for that matter), leave a review letting people know how it was working with the item – I read reviews on everything before I make a purchase :-)

Hi there friends, just peeking in with an update and some eye candy today.  One day every week I’ll be recaping the designs made by my fabulous Creative Team and today is the day.  But first some great news – the Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team is growing by one!  I’m so tickled to introduce you to our newest member.   I hope you will welcome her and add her to your subscription lists!  Today’s post comes full of inspiration from the creative team – they’ve worked with dies from the Vintage Elegance Collection; keep scrolling so you can see it all.  We’re kicking off today’s post with the first creation from our newest designer along with wonderful creations from this amazing creative team.   So tickled to introduce you to Teresa Horner!!

I’ve had the privilege of working with Teresa Horner for many years.  Our styles are quite similar that sometimes I have to do a double take!  Teresa is expert at building well balanced ensembles that stretch a die purchase and allow you to use the die in so many ways.  She has such an eye for details and loves thinking out of the box.  Her creations look involved but don’t be fooled, they are very easy to recreate.

Thanks to my amazing mom I have been a crafter and artist all my life.  I majored in art in high school and also in college where I majored in costume design and graphic arts.   I love to draw, paint, sew, and create fun projects out of paper each and every day.  I have been on many design teams over the years and have been published both online and in print publications.  I also worked at a scrapbook store in my hometown and designed for them and taught classes for 10 years.  It has truly been an amazing and fun journey for me.

My favorite part of the journey was designing for Spellbinders for 4 years and I had my first chance at designing with Becca Feeken’s beautiful dies.  They are incredibly beautiful and my love for all things victorian and vintage has made them a everyday staple in my crafty library of dies.  So you can see I am over the moon excited to be on this team and create for her , it is truly a dream come true.

I am married to my very, very best friend and have 2 grown kids along with 2 dogs and a cat.  I am a So Cal native and when i am not working at Disneyland in the castle i like to travel, cook, work in my garden, perfect my photography skills and go hiking in the great outdoors.

You can reach Teresa at:

Teresa Horner is using the Spellbinders Vintage Elegance Filigree Booklet for a quick and elegant way to gift some money to a  friend for her graduation.   She made it up in gold and white and glued the Vintage Elegance Filigree Pocket inside to hold the cash and matched the elegance by using Spellbinders Decorative Swallowtail Tags (which fits perfectly inside the pocket)  for the sentiment.  Did you see how she created a closure on the outside with the Decorative Swallowtail Die as well?

Edited to Add:  I’m tickled that this has been a popular die.  It looks to be sold out at Spellbinders and Amazon someone will ask so I’ve provided  an alternate link where  I recently ordered the die from and received it within several days—>Spellbinders Vintage Elegance Filigree Booklet

Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team - www.amazingpapergrace.com

Joanna Krogulec crafted an ensemble that made us all gasp.  It’s so simple yet with all the flowers it’s so enchanting!!  The Spellbinders Vintage Elegance Filigree Booklet doubles as a mini -card and that’s exactly how Joanna used it – first as an Anniversary Card and then . . .

using the other patterned insert, she came back and did a birthday card!  They are both delightful and different from each other as they are sweet.
Melissa Bove had us swooning and asking for details about her card creation, with the perfect shade of blue ribbon that she hand dyed!  Perfectly shabby chic and so many details to love, she used Spellbinders Vintage Elegance Curled Grace Oval for her focal point and layered on ovals in the same set.  She finished by cleverly tucking in a sentiment that she snagged from the Spellbinders Vintage Elegance Giving Occasions Die and Stamp set.


Her second creation is an open book display that she has filled with all manner of sweet collectibles.  Meant to stand open and display the contents, I love the heart and the flowers match everything so wonderfully.  The booklet holes are precisely covered by pearls – I thought that was so genius.  A similar arrangement with pictures  would make a nice booklet frame to stand on your beside table or desk.   She is using the Spellbinders Vintage Elegance Filigree Booklet along with another sentiment from the Spellbinders Vintage Elegance Giving Occasions Die and Stamp set.

Kristi Schurr made some clever cuts on her beautiful card to give her additional layers.  She used Spellbinders Vintage Elegance Curled Grace as her focal point but wanted her layering to have the curls also.  She explains on her blog how to make to cuts to give you the extra layer.  So loving her bow and flowers!


Thanks so much for joining us today.  I hope you’ve found a little bit of inspiration in these creations.  It’s so amazing seeing what every one comes up with – an absolute gift and so lovely to share.

    Please let your entire design team know that I appreciate their beautiful designs!!! You are all such an inspiration with the variety of options. I won’t be able to keep up! Yes, Becca, your booklet dies are so versatile I can see why the set is sold out at many retailers. Keep the innovations coming!ReplyCancel

    Wow, what a treat this is, Becca,
    All of these are beautiful creations and give a great variety of ideas of how the dies can be used. How exciting to welcome another member to your design team. I love Teresa’s Filigree Booklet and she’s given me some great ideas with her outside closure and inside pocket. I’m at work now but…I’d rather be making cards!
    Love & blessings,
