AMAZING PAPER GRACE DECEMBER DIE OF THE MONTH BLOG HOP


Good morning!!  Every month we'll be bringing you inspiration for the Die of the Month; today is our Die of the Month Blog Hop!!   The Die of the Month is like a "Swiss army knife"  you can manipulate it to do a variety of things.  At the very least you can do a card and normally you can use the pieces and parts for cards and other 3D items.  The Creative Team has joined in for everyone to give you their spin, in their style.  We hope you'll see something that resonates and inspires you.

If you are new to our blogs, the Die of the Month is an exclusive die Becca has designed for Spellbinders - it is called Softly Spoke'n Flip and Gatefold Die.  This particular set has 9 dies and they can be used to make a background, a gatefold card, a tent card and the individual dies in the set can be used for many things.

My First Project:


I made a sweet little basket using this amazing Die set. I simply cut out 2 of the larger die cuts using the insert on just 1 side of each die cut. (I also cut a 2nd die cut using gold paper and adhered it, offset, behind the original die cut.) I then folded them and attached them to each other on the bottom with some adhesive. I then cut the side panels by just measuring the width of the basket but left a 1/8" on both sides. I then scored a 1/8" line on each side and adhered those "tabs" to the inside of the basket. So easy and fun to make! These are great to hold candy, a gift card, money or would make great favor holders for a wedding.


My Second Project: 


I made a card using the die as the top layer to the front of my card. Easy peasy! Such a lovely die!!  


I adhered the die cut using some pop dots to give the card depth. This fabulous Die set can be used for so many things and so many different ways! Love it!!

Beautiful projects, Melissa,
Surrounding the handles of the baskets in pearls is a great idea for reinforcing them. I'll certainly keep that in mind.
Thank you! Sandy
