Ever since they were in grade school, my kids knew I was the mom that loved the special paper touches.  When they were doing their science projects I hauled out all the die cutting machines to make um… encourage them to crank through crisp, readable letters.  You would not be wrong if you imagined that my kid was the one who had decorative corners in each edge of their science fair project.   Today I’m using Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame and Angled Fold and Go Flowers for the little details!

I have a small dining room table in this empty nester stage of my life but one of the supreme joys that I experience whenever anyone comes to visit is the special touches that I can offer when we sit down for tea, when we sit down for dessert, on the pillow in their guest room.  Ten minutes – that’s all it takes moreover, the memory lasts a lifetime.

My daughter is home for Christmas this year and I planned a dessert afternoon where she and I can sit, have coffee and savor our time together.  Let’s be honest, this event will last less than an hour but I’m already looking forward to it.  How will I ever tempt her to sit for minute?  Well, this time I have a tantalizing frozen dessert and I also planned to make it lovely occasion by snipping a couple of my favorite dies for the place setting.

Special Paper Touches, Yes Please!

This is a super easy project, no magic, just cutting – I’m including a picture of what everything looks like before assembly and from the backside.

  1. Make small poinsettia from my Angled Fold and Go Flowers (hint, hint, this week I’ll show you how I used it as a holly leaf!)  I’m the impatient kind, so I used hot glue instead of glue.  Add two leaves from the same set to add volume.
  2. From gold paper, cut one Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame.  By hand, fold it in half and inserted a piece of card stock cut to 4-7/8″ wide 6-1/4″ tall.  Instant pocket!  Printed off your dessert menu, layer it on gold paper and inserted it as well.  Use glue dots on the top corner loops to secure the pocket.
  3. Make a napkin ring from the ovals in the Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame with the flower inserts, cut in half like a half moon.  Back the cutouts with the appropriate colors for the flowers and leaves.  Adhere it around your silverware and napkin for a napkin holder.

Now don’t you feel like a star?  That sweet piece of loving took less than 10 minutes and you never know whose heart it might tickle!

Never underestimate the worth of the kind gesture inherent in a small handmade gift :-)  Recently I attended an annual Christmas party with a group of papercrafters that I’ve been with for the 18 years.  Our December party is the highlight of the year and is full of special touches.  Each person makes an unique craft to give to the other 11.  Yes, it’s just paper and small inexpensive knickknacks but they are my most treasured gifts of the year.

    Merry Christmas, Becca,
    Just this morning I heard an interview on NPR talking about the joys of wrapped gifts (versus gift bags). It’s all about those special touches that tell others they are special to us. Hand-made, hand-wrapped or hand-lettered may be “dying arts” but the heart longs for these special touches and what a joy to behold!

    Growing up in a family of limited means I learned early on that a well wrapped gift holds great anticipation, regardless of the contents. Oh boy, do I love these special touches. What a year this has been for new die releases and formation of your Creative Team. Thank you so much for your commitment to keep beauty and inspiration coming. I so appreciate being in the company of talented, generous and loving friends.
    Love and blessings,
    SandyReplyCancel

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.

Here are links to the other two Die Cut Ornaments I made this season:  Multiloop Tiered Bow Die Cut Ornament and Swirl Bliss Pocket Die, Die Cut Ornament.

How to Assemble Your Bella Rose Die Cut Ornament:

Die Cut Bella Rose Ornament by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame - see full supply list at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=33082
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.   Die Cut Bella Rose Ornament by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame - see full supply list at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=33083
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.

Swirl Bliss Die Cut Ornaments by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Swirling Grace Pocket Die - see full supply list at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=33053Sweet friends, recently I did a series on Die Cut Ornaments and this is one of the three die cut ornaments made for the season.  It’s our family tradition to have a special ornament so I embellished this for one of my trees.  I used the Swirl Bliss Pocket Die to create the ornament.  These are all sentimental to me this year; I was creating them as I sat in the midst of memories.  December 4th would have been my 35th wedding anniversary and this is an activity that John and I relished.  It didn’t make me sad but I know he would be proud that I continue to create, especially on an occasion that would have previously really squeezed my heart.  Life is good like that!!

Swirl Bliss Die Cut Ornaments by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Swirling Grace Pocket Die - see full supply list at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=33053These dies were not originally designated to make ornaments but I love designing something you can get a bonus use out of.  I have a tutorial of an unembellished version that I share below.  These can be decorated in so many ways – I chose to put a flameless candle inside and below I share an illuminated undecorated version so that you can clearly see the charm of the glow.

SSwirl Bliss Die Cut Ornaments by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Swirling Grace Pocket Die - see full supply list at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=33053I could chat on forever but this is a Christmas Spirit thing – a joy for me to make.  I hope you’ll take a moment to scroll through the pictures.
Swirl Bliss Die Cut Ornaments by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Swirling Grace Pocket Die - see full supply list at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=33053We are in the days where we take stock of the happenings of the past year.  I find myself pondering what actions I take to make the next year better.  I wanted to say that I so appreciate the readers that come here to Amazing Paper Grace.  I’m going into my 10th blogging year and would not have made it though my rough personal times without you.  Your collective voice has lifted me more than you know.  2017 was fraught with trials but I am walking with my head up and with a confidence that has been long in finding the right place in my life.  I hope the same is true for you :-)

Adhere 3 more pairs to the square bottom (inside) to construct the four sides.  I chose to add a large flameless candle to  the lantern  that was too large to go through the side (a small flameless votive would fit).  I left one end open so that I could get candle in place and glued closed.

    Your creativity always amazes me. I love the ornaments and how you repurposed dies to create them. I remember those first holidays after my husband passed away. He loved Christmas and I knew that he wouldn’t have wanted his death to ruin the holiday for me so I forced myself to decorate and celebrate. After that each year became easier. Even though I remarried ten years after his death, I still have ornaments on my tree that we bought together at Christmas shops while on vacation. Now they bring more smiles than tears. I am sending you wishes for a special and meaningful holiday season and a Merry Christmas.ReplyCancel

    Becca so good to hear you are now in a good head space ready
    for the coming New Year hope it’s a good one for you and yours.
    You inspire so many of us not only with your makes but also your
    attitude on life and dealing with the downside of daily life .
    Your makes this year have so inspired me to use my dies in different
    ways to get the most out of them !
    I thank you for all you do and the work you put into it for everyone of us
    to learn and enjoy.
    John would be so proud but not surprised!!! Hugs much love Pam XXXReplyCancel

    Becca, thank you for sharing this versatile die. But most of all, thank you for sharing your innermost thoughts from every chamber of your heart. You must know, that a lot of us out here in creative land are going through stressful times and your quiet messages of love can permeate the worst day. God bless you during this Christmas season and may you be surrounded by cherished friends and family. SaraReplyCancel
