Gift Box and Card Ensemble Tutorial by Becca Feeken using Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame - see full supply list and step by step tutorial at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=33172
Hi there sweet peeps!  I had a lovely Christmas with my daughter and have another day or two with her before she returns.  I thought this would be a great time to show a project I made earlier that I haven’t shared here as well as some lovely inspiration from the Creative Team.  The project is a Gift Box and Card Ensemble using a folded Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame.  I love using large templates and figuring out the ratio to turn them into boxes.  For this project I also used the Lunette Arched Borders set and specifically the lattice design from that set.  The cards are 3-1/2″ x 5″ each.

Putting Together the Gift Box Notecards:

1.  Cut small card 7″ tall by 5″ wide; score in half to make a 3-1/2″ x 5″ landscape card, round corners on bottom two corners.

3.  Hand fold the Bella Rose die cut in half and glue to card base.

4.  Make a 1″ slit along the middle of the fold card base at the fold line.  Then punch a hole in the large loop on the bottom of the card and thread ribbon up through hole and down through slit.  Secure ribbon with tape.  Add a pre-tied bow to ribbon at bottom, center of card.

Assembling the Gift Box Bottom:

1.  Cut two pieces of sturdy card stock to 6-1/2″ x 7-1/2″

2.  With the 6-1/2″ edge at the top of a scoreboard, score at 4″ and 6″ then with the 7-1/2″ edge at the top of a scoreboard, score at 5″ and 7″

3.  Cut as shown, round corners and add ScorTape to right side flaps.
4.  Remove tape liners and lift right piece onto left flap to make one piece.  Fold right flap under then fold entire piece in center (wrong sides together) to engage the remaining flap.  Pop up box from flat to dimensional and close bottom tabs.

Constructing the Gift Box Top:

1.  Cut/emboss Bella Rose Lattice Layering Die, excluding the large oval die but including the arched inserts from Lunette Borders.

Tip:  Placing the arched pieces is easy if you use the large oval as a guide but then remove so as to not cut out the oval.

2.  Score 1-1/2″ from each edge turning 90 degrees for each score and as a result, that will give you a total of four score lines.

3.  Cut as shown above.

4.  Trim loops from each end as shown above.

5.  Flex all score lines, bend flaps around end of top and glue sparingly.

The project is not hard at all but I do recommend practicing the top with scrap card stock before making the final top.  I do this with all the models I work with and it makes it stress free :-)

Hey, don’t forget to share what you make on Instagram or Facebook if you live there.  I’m so tickled when you all tag me to show you’ve created something or remade one of my cards to send to a loved one.  I love instagram because it’s on my phone and I take it everywhere.  If you’re a hold out and want to learn how to get started, let me know if your comments.  I’m considering doing a series of posts :-)

    Hi Becca. Lovely item as usual. You do the most amazing things with shapes, cuts and folds.That’s what caught my eye first time I saw something you created (the punched geometric folds for flowers or medallions). Anyway, yes, I would love instructions on using Instagram. I am not really a hold out, just old (lol) and learning isn’t as easy as it once was, so learning from you in your calm voice and manner would be so helpful. Thanks for asking. :-)ReplyCancel

Holiday Bags by Becca Feeken using Angled Fold and Go Flowers, Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame, Vintage Pierced Banners, and Quietfire Design Sentiments - see full supply list and instructions at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=33140
Hi there sweet friends, today is an extension of my Special Paper Touches post from yesterday.  (It’s also known as Project Homecoming Daughter.)  Today, I’m spinning up some Holiday Bags to go along with sweet paper touches for dessert on Christmas Day.   Do me a favor, click HERE to see what I started with, and then click HERE for a little surprise :-)   Okay, I could not resist.  Not what you would normally expect from me?

Holiday Bags are the Icing on the Cake

This is an well used die that many of you already have.  In fact, it’s something I reach for all the time when I have a small gift to present.  I loved dolling this bag up to hold her last Christmas 2017 gift.  I used the Favorably Simple Gift Bag to create a bag that matches the decor of our upcoming dessert extravaganza.  Last week I figured out I would need several more to hold cookies for some ladies that always keep my cup of coffee filled at a local breakfast diner.  With Christmas closing in, I picked some pretty holiday card stock to make things move along quickly!!

I had the same dies on my desk for an extended period of time and I wove them through several of my Christmas projects.  I found myself reaching for the Angled Fold and Go Flowers because it looks so much like a holly leaf and also used it for a Poinsettia look.  Again I reached for Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame – purely as a partial embellishment.  Finally, I reached for Vintage Pierced Banners for the sentiment on the matching card.  In addition Quietfire Design stamps saved the day!

For those of you who are new to the blog, some time ago I made a video showing how the bag goes together —–> HERE.  I’m partial to the elegant versions of the bag, but the cute versions are just right for happy occasions and little ones!
