Amazing Paper Grace May Die of the Month Blog Ho


We just love dies that transform into different things!  When you look at this die template there is no limit to the ways it can be fixed and flipped and folded to give you a beautiful prop, box, or card.  Welcome to the APG May 2020 Die of the Month - Fleur de Lis Grandeur Fold Over. 

We often talk about that "easy to use die template" that you reach for time after time after time.  This, is one of those.  This month after using it we've seen it make the most darling filigree envelope that simply requires cutting and folding.  We've seen it make a simple notecard that will produce a card in under five minutes.  We've seen it make a box top that simply takes the time to score and fold the box and drape the die over the top.  As always, the die makes a card that goes from just die-cutting to one that has layers of the filigree elements crisscrossed.  Lol, do cards make themselves?  Almost with this one - that puts in on our "goto" list.

Here are the dies included in the set:


My Project Today:

I created a Wedding Day card and a Thank You favour box.


 To create my card I die cut the decorative envelope and folded there sides inside. The edge of the folds I adhered on 3D tape so it does not close flat.


I added inside Spanish moss (it is moss used by florists) and some handmade paper petals. Then I glued all a bit here and there so the flaps stay in place. Between card base and bow I placed 3D tape (there levels) so it stays up.


I created a card base that is opening to the side.
On my both projects today I added sentiments from Spellbinders SDS-166 - All Occasion Sentiments Stamp and Die set. To create roses on my card I used Spellbinders die and here is a paper  rose tutorial that I created ---> click.


Here is my little box that I created using the decorative envelope.


I created a closure for a box with mini peg and a decorative flat pearl.


Here are pictures showing how I made my box using the filigree envelope die.
I die cut the envelope only with two inlay elements.
I placed it in a middle of my scoring board (6 inches) and scored at 5-1/8' and then at 6-7/8'.


Then I also scored the pre scored sides.


And then I just cut the sides so I could glue the box as usual.

For a Sweet Friend Pop-up Card


Today I would like to share a pop-up card for a friend.


To decorate the card I used a small square from Spellbinders S4-1047 - Richelieu Squae. I also added a tiny tag and stamp from Spellbinders SDS-053 - Graceful Tiny Tags. I handmade flowers using Spellbinders S4-982 - Cinch and Go Flowers IV.


Inside the card I added a pop-up mechanism from Spellbinders S4-1032 - 3D Interactive Pivot Banner. I added a decorative swirl from Spellbinders S4-926 - Swirl Tags.


Since my card is small. It measures 9cm x 9cm only I adjusted slightly the pop-up mechanism. I trimmed both sides so it is now approximately 1''-5/8' wide.


I adhered it inside the card as normal. You can check Becca Feeken's tutorial where she shows two ways of using it ---> click.




I cut my four piece and trimmed it to have four squares 1''-5/8' x 1''-5/8'. I just wanted the pop-up to be squares like the card.


If I would not trim the panel a bit on both sides it would be visible here from under the four-square panel.





When I have finished my card I decided to add a bow closure.



Thank you so much for stopping by.
