Amazing Paper Grace September Die of the Month Bog Hop - Lattice Quadrante



Every once in awhile a die comes along that gives you so many combinations that it's almost like a puzzle.  Today we are sharing the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month for September 2020 -  Lattice Quadrante.  The four pieces of pristine cut, pie-shaped lattice with decorative edges will have you twirling, twisting, and setting the pieces on end figuring out all the beautiful configurations you can make.


Becca Feeken of Amazing Paper Grace sent me these lovely dies to create with.



Lattice Quadrante Details

Who isn't a fan of lattice?  Becca shared that so often she longs for pairs of motifs so that she can cut a symmetrical design in one pass.  This die is symmetry on steroids!  She has given us four identical motifs that function as inlays or can be used altogether with a rim to make a rounded central element.  The word quadrante comes from quads and is just the hint you need to know that there are four pie-shaped pieces in this set to create a configuration powerhouse.  


Today we want to inspire you to think of different combinations using the Die of the Month, Lattice Quadrante.


It's truly like a puzzle!  Here's what we came up with.


  1. Use all the motifs together in the rim for a large motif.
  2. Alternate motifs in the rim for an alternating lattice design.
  3. Cut each piece separately and use the pointed end as corners.
  4. Make a tall card by stacking two of the motifs the tall way.
  5. Make a pocket card by cutting two of the motifs side by side.
  6. Set the die on point and cut a v-shaped peek a boo piece.
  7. Use one motif alone.

    Are you getting the picture?  We can name so many more!

 

There are SEVEN dies included in the Lattice Quadrante Set


 

My Project Today using Lattice Quadrante


Slimline cards are very popular right now, and I just knew that the Quadrante Lattice would be perfect for making one.   


My slimline card base measures 8-1/2 x 7 inches and is scored at 3-1/2 inches on the short side.   I die cut four of the quadrante motifs in gold foil card stock and four from some pretty papers I had in my card stash.  I layered them in pairs and cut one in half up the middle.  They fit this card base like a glove.   



Elegant Twist Squares Etched Dies in the centre, highlight the simple sentiment which is from the Borders and Sentiments Glimmer and HotFoil Plates set, part of the Elegant Twist Collection.   I love the pretty border on the Lattice Quadrante dies

Designer Tip: It definitely helps to use low tack masking tape to hold the dies in place when cutting the four quadrante motifis in the formation shown in the red illustration above.  This prevents the dies from slipping when being run through your die-cutting machine.


For my next project, I realised when cutting out the individual quadrante motifs that one on its own would be perfect for these origami style treat pouches, The die is so pretty that it needs nothing more than a simple bow and perhaps a flower to make this simple treat box into something very special.


These treat pouches are perfect for gifting cute little hard to wrap presents.





To make the origami style treat pouch, take a piece of 6" x 6" inch card stock and fold as per the photo sequence below:-








I added glue to the underside of the bottom flap to hold it in place.

  5. I love to see your work, as you always come up with the prettiest projects. And these two are no exception. I adore them both but the slimline is so feminine and pretty; I just have to make one for my sister's birthday. I always give her a new "Mickey Mouse" watch for her birthday. This year your box is going to be the gift box. Thanks!!!
