Christmas in July-3D Ornament-The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

20 Jul

                              3D Ornament

Hey everyone! I am here with a quick project for The Cutting Cafe.  This post we are still doing Christmas in July.  I chose the 3D Ornament file as it is a very quick but cute.

I am on vacation and cut the pieces out to take with me to put together.  The set has circles and an ornament base.  You fold the circles in half and glue together side by side.  Use more circles for a fuller ornament.

When I return home, I will glitter the edges which will add a glittery touch.  Tie a ribbon or hanger on the top and you are finished.

Be sure to stop by The Cutting Cafe Blog and leave a comment.  You will be eligible for a drawing on the August 7th post for three free files.  Thanks for stopping by.  Before you go, here is my video…

Camera Shaped Keepsake Box

Camera Keepsake Box

Hello Everyone!  Thanks for all the wonderful comments on the camera box I created for The Cutting Cafe design team blog hop last week!  As I mentioned, I am giving the Camera Treat Cup Card and Keepsake Box Cutting File and Template file to one person who left a comment letting me know why they liked the file and how they would use it, and they had to follow/subscribe to my blog.

There were three people who actually answered the two questions and followed/subscribed to my blog.  They are:

janja65
Carla Hundley
Katrina

In the old fashion, put the names on pieces of folded paper, mix them up, and pick one method, I chose a winner.

Congratulations to Janja65 who said: I like the design paper you’ve used for the camera, its beautiful!  I would love to make this camera box with a mini album for a friend who is pregnant with a baby girl ❤.

Leave a comment below letting me know you saw this and I will email you the file.

Thanks again to everyone who stopped by!

Lip Balm Favor/Gift Box – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

7 May
Lip Balm Box

Lip Balm Favor/Gift Box

Hello All!  This week for our design team project for The Cutting Cafe, we used the new Lip Balm Chapstick Holder Set.  The file comes with a few variations – a box, and a single holder that you make a cover out of clear acetate or paper which you can give as is or add to a card or tag.

I think this one is so cute.  I made the box which holds three lip balms.  You can decorate for men, women, boys, and girls and they make great favors for showers, parties, friendship exchanges, teachers gifts, co-workers, grab bags, etc.

I added a shaker element to the window of my box but you can use acetate or velum instead.  I just added some bling stickers and a sentiment from the file on both the front and back of the box.

Bows and a Box

21 Apr

Hey everyone!  It is time for a The Cutting Cafe Project!  This time we could use whatever files we wanted to and I used four different ones.  The items I made are going into a gift bag that I made.  I used the Gift Box with Divider, the Loopy Loopy Bow, the Bow Tie with a Slit, and the Bow with Ribbon Set.

First up is the box.  The file comes with two box sizes and two tops.  I used the one with the window…

T-Shirt Shaped Note Pad

This time for my design team project for The Cutting Cafe, we had to pick a shaped card and make it into a notepad. I chose the T-Shirt Shaped Card.  I used my favorites, black and gold to make this fabulous note pad.

I added flat back pearls randomly on the front and added a fringe trim as well as some black and gold rhinestone trim.

I chose to use black paper on the inside which will require the use of a metallic marker.
