Multiway Snowflake Lattice

For my second monthly inspiration post for Crafts U Love I decided to focus on the Snowflake Lattice die I used last time.

It's easy enough to use this die "out of the box" and just place the cut out lattice on top of a contrasting paper and use a variation of papers (glitter, pearlescent) or techniques, but there is so much more to do with a few snips of the scissors... So here's another 9 ways with the Snowflake Lattice from John Next Door.

In this photo you can see how I just snipped the left hand corner apart from the Lattice snowflake to give a small and large corner piece.

Snipping apart the bottom right corner gives you a diagonal die cut in addition to the small corners.

The corner pieces can be trimmed further as I did here for the corner on the right in the photo, by snipping the vertical and horizontal bars. Be careful not to cut the links between the snowflakes to keep the die-cut stable.

Similarly the diagonal can also be trimmed in the same way :

The lattice die does not have an outside cut edge (it does come with 2 square dies that can be used for that purpose if needed) which means that it is possible to extend the die-cut horizontally or vertically, as long as your die-cut machine is large enough!

The photo on the right shows the die alongside a long piece of card I die cut twice lengthwise.

For my card I chose to have a 4 snowflakes border and cut extra snowflakes completely for embellishments as in the photo on the left.

I placed the border on top of silver paper and matted onto patterned papers adding my cut snowflakes and an embossed sentiment.

So now you can create small and large corners, a diagonal, a vertical or horizontal border, and give an alternative look by snipping some or all of the links. There you have it, 9 more ways to use the Snowflake Lattice!

  2. Happy to see some more of those snowflakes being pressed into action. Love the geometric simplicity of the lower half, freeing up into the natural shapes and movement of the upper half.
