Spellbinders Sneak Peek and Giveaway Day 5

Wow! This year flew by! Thank you so much for visiting often and enjoying the fun projects that my creative team shares with you here each week! It's because of you, that I love what I do. There is nothing more rewarding as a designer than to see what YOU create with the things I design. I'm thrilled that my creative team has been a catalyst for your design projects. I love what you share with me on my Facebook page and encourage you to keep on sharing what you do. 

I'm happy to announce that it's that fun time of year again where I get to share with you my latest creations for Spellbinders Paper Arts! I hope you like my latest dies, and when you make something special with them...please feel free to share your projects with me...either via my facebook page, or e-mail.

Each day, through January 8th, 2013, Spellbinders will be revealing brand new, never before seen die templates, folders, and other exciting Spellbinders products. We're even giving you the chance to win all of the new product revealed!  

Today I am revealing my new licensed designs, the new Butterfly Corner set (S5-165) and Ornate Squares set (S5-166). The corner die will allow your creativity soar and the Ornate Squares work perfectly with Spellbinders basic square templates, allowing you to build off the core, expanding your collection's versatility!

Using the Spellbinders S5-166 Ornate Square set, use the ornate square to cut 12 square shapes, repeat with an embossing pass, then snip off one corner of each of the 12 square shapes, as pictured. 
Fold in half, so that the cut end is mirrored, and the other end comes to a point.
Fold edge up at an angle as pictured.
Fold the opposing edge as pictured.

Very carefully match up the lace edge of the square with another lace edge of a different square. Continue combining the lace squares until you complete a set of six to form a star-like shape or snowflake. Then repeat this step to create another set of six.

When you have your lace squares combined into sets of six, then cut off most of the lacey edge. Start at about 1/2 inch from the outside, down to about 1/4 inch in the center. Continue all the way around the circle until all are trimmed, then trim the other set of six that you glued together.
Now we will combine the two snowflake shapes. Carefully line up the inside edge of one snowflake with the other, then glue each of the edges to combine both snowflakes.

Each point of the snowflake should look like this when combined.

Now you have your combined snowflake. Lets add a little embellishment.
With the Ornate Square set, cut two of the littlest square shapes by running the die through the Spellbinders Grand Calibur, then switch to the embossing plates and run it through to emboss.
Next combine the two squares by interweaving the corners. 
Cut and emboss the flower shape, then add that to the center of the interweaved squares.

Now add a brad to the center, and feed it through the snowflake.
Add a ribbon to hang it up, and enjoy!
