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I love finding projects using dies, other than what they were originally made to do.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!
