Honeycomb Ornament Tutorial

Hi there blog friends!!  Remember the Honeycomb Ornament I made last year using the Spellbinders Ornament die template?  This year Spellbinders released the 2011 Heirloom ornament and with Christmas around the corner I created a tutorial on how to make your own.  Several of you have asked for a step by step and a video and you’ve got it.  I was honored when Splitcoaststampers asked me to submit those for their site – you can see the step by step tutorial and list of products needed at this link:  http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/honeycombornament/

In the meantime, for those of you who like videos – have a look see here!

I’m quietly working in the background on projects (insert mischievous grin here).  I hope you enjoy the tutorial, there are more on the way!!

    Becca, I saw your tutorial and SCS yesterday and fell in love with this ornament. The paper you used really caught my eye. I would love to get my hands on this purple and gold combination. My nephew is a U of WA grad and purple and gold are the school colors. I thought he would love getting an ornament using this gorgeous paper! I know you mentioned Hobby Lobby. We don’t have one in the city I live in but I thought I might be able to find it online if you could give me more info. Thanks!ReplyCancel

    Beautiful!!!!! OH my gosh Becca maybe I missed something that you take breaks between cards. You are a love drug for me and treasure your creativity. I can’t be without your daily cards. My husband said I was going through withdrawals. I look so forward to checking your site after work. I am sure I am not the only one. Your wonderful! My mom passed away some time ago and I feel that your cards and comments are so welcoming and a comfort zone. I just can’t tell you how much it means to me. Sorry ladiesfor my long comment but I am addicted.ReplyCancel

  • RufusNovember 10, 2011 - 11:01 pm

    Hi Becca

    Amazed that after years of browsing the internet I have only today discovered you through Splitcoaststampers. Your site is amazing and your creativity is inspiring. I too, as another commenter mentioned loved the paper you used. We fortunately do have a Hobby lobby here but I wasn’t able to find anything double sided that I thought was thin enough. Is there anything else you can me? Did it come in a pack? Was it with the scrapbook paper etc…. Anything information is appreciated.

    Signed up for your emailings and am looking forward to what is to come


  • BeverlyNovember 11, 2011 - 5:22 pm

    This is so amazing! I was very inspired by your amazing creativity that I made an ornament using the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge and posted it on my blog: ScrappinThread.blogspot.com. I linked to your amazing tutorial so that others cans see how you created the beautiful ornament above. Thank you for sharing your gift of creativity with others. BeverlyReplyCancel

  • WinkNovember 11, 2011 - 9:44 pm

    You are something else! The ornament is Absolutely Gorgeous! I wish I was only half as creative as you! I look forward to your emails everyday. Thank you so much for all your inspiration.ReplyCancel

  • GG Judy JacksonNovember 14, 2011 - 4:16 am

    Loved it. Don’t have this die yet so I checked out another of your ornament videos. I also don’t have the Fluer De Lis Motif but found the Flur De Lis square (S4-318) works just as well using the 3 embossed markings on the center of each side. I used the largest die (#4) in white and #2 for the center in silver patterened wrapping paper. I cased your video to make a topper for the square metal tin, then threaded a large ribbon with glittered snowflakes thru the lid and bottom so the tin could be hung on a tree until Christmas morning. One of my more eyecatching gift card holders! My SU demonstrator takes pic and uploads for me at times so If you want to see it, let me know. (GG stands for great grandma; as apposed to the talented Judy Jackson of the TJ magazine). Thank you for all your creative ideas.ReplyCancel

  • Mia McDonaldNovember 14, 2011 - 11:55 pm

    Becca, your work is so awesome!! Everytime I enter your site I have to be ready to work bc I’m always so inspired by what you have done. I’m doing an ornament swap with some of my closest girlfriends and when I saw the Honeycomb ornament. I felt like it was a must have. I’m doing mine with tissue paper so a needed to add a few extra steps but I would love to share my results with you.ReplyCancel
