Spellbinder’s Large Die of the the Month for January

Updated: Jan 7

Happy New Year, friends! Oh my goodness! Spellbinder's Large Die Of the Month, Honey Bee Jar, is so special! I love this die set with its large honey jar that could be easily transformed into a jam jar, beautiful flowers and, of course, a honey bee. I have created a 'shaped, shaker' card (say that three or four times!!!) that is a combination of pretty and fun.

Be sure to check out Spellbinder's new value pack, The Deluxe Caboodle Club! All 10 clubs are included at a great savings! The January bonus item included in the membership is the super sweet Honey Dippin' Die Set! An image has been included at the end of this post.

The January "New Subscriber" registration window will be available January 6 - 27th while supplies last. 

  • An A2 sized card base was cut with the outline die of the jar. The cutting edge of the top of the jar overhung the fold of the card base to keep it intact.

  • This die was also used to cut cream card stock.

  • The detail die for the jar was used to cut gold vellum that was run through a sticker maker. The 'honey' was adhered to the cream jar. This die cut is the backing for the shaker.

  • The detail die for the jar was centred and taped in the outline die. Heavy, white card stock was cut four times and once from the cream card stock. The white frames were stacked.

  • The outline jar die was used to cut acetate. The acetate was adhered to the stacked frame and the cream frame adhered on top aligning it to the white frame.

  • The shaker material was added to the pocket and the backing die cut was adhered to the frame. The independent shaker was then mounted on the shaped card base.

  • Pink vellum was adhered to one side of a double-sided adhesive sheet and cut with the jar topper and sentiment tag dies. The topper was adhered to the rim of the jar and finished off with a gold foil bow and string. The tag was slipped through the string and adhered.

  • The flowers and bee were cut from various colours of card stock and assembled. Blue vellum wings were added to the bee.

  • The flowers and bee were adhered to the jar saving the smaller flowers to arrange on the bow.
