Diecut Ornament Series: Bella Rose Lattice Frame
Are you ready for another quick make? This month I’ve been showing you how to make die cut ornaments for gifts, for fun and as a part of a family activity. I’m Becca Feeken with Amazing Paper Grace and I’m back with the third in a three part series on Diecut Ornament Making. Today I’m going to show you a round, eight gored ornament using S6-129 Bella Rose Lattice Layering Frame. If you missed my post with Ornament 1 in the series, click HERE, Ornament 2 in the series, click HERE.
Because there are three sets of inserts that fit this die, that means three different looks of the same ornament! The matching arched inserts I chose were from S5-330 Lunette Arched Borders where I picked the heart motifs.
This is another ornament that goes together quickly. Once again, finding the button I wanted to use on top took longer than actually gluing the pieces together. Although I used one color of card stock, alternating two colors would make a lovely ornament as well.
Assemble Your Diecut Ornament:
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.
Fold all eight ovals in half, rights sides together.
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. 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.

I love finding projects using dies, other than what they were originally made to do. Handmade ornaments are like the icing on the cake. Have a look in your stash to see what you can repurpose for your tree!

Oh, Becca. This is absolutely gorgeous!!! You are such an inspiration. I don’t know how you thought this up, but it is just so beautiful and elegant. Thank you so much for the tutorial on how you made it. Brilliant!
Thank you Chelsea!! Lol, much to everyones chagrin, I design dies slowly because I like to marinate on whether I’m packing enough into what it can be used for. This particular die missed an earlier release because I just didn’t think it was ready. I will say that I’m feeling better about the long thought I put into making sure it is purchase-worthy. Thank you so much for your kind words on this!
An awesome Christmas ornament. Just lovely!
Thank so much Suzzie!! Many of these ornaments have been on my “must make” list for a while and then I think, would people want to see it? I thank you for your kind words – I might make a couple more!!
Lovely ornament. Becca has such lovely dies, love her work.
Christine (one of my sweetest, long time readers) thank you so, so much for your kind words here! I hope you are doing well!

Hi Denice! Thank you so much for popping over and glad you liked the ornament. It’s not hard and I’m contemplating making with some kids 🙂 God bless you too sweet friend!
I love what you’re doing with the dies to make ornaments. I ordered a die just for that reason as the ornament was so pretty. Thank you for your inspiration and I’m sure that the people receiving my ornaments will love them. You have such wonderful products. All of your dies make beautiful greeting cards for me to give and sell.

Gorgeous ornament, Becca! Using a regular die no less!
But of course, you have been challenging us to make ornaments using dies since at least 2010, when the Heirloom Ornaments were introduced. That was when I began following you on the Spellbinders blog before adding your own blog to my daily inspirational friends must-see list. Lol. I have so many ideas and not enough time.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful talent & designs.
Kristine, it tickles me that you remember that honeycomb ornament – it was a first 🙂 I’ve seen a lot of people reproduce my original guide and it may be time for an update!! I am thinking to bring it into the current day with a rerelease – it was fun!!
How about a kissing ball with mistletoe
Ooooh, I think that would be lovely, Beverly!!
Another exquisite creation, Becca. You are amazing! I’m having some girlfriends over for a Christmas cocktail party next week. Now I have the perfect take-home gift for each special lady. Thank you for another fantastic inspiration. Hugs, Pam
