Birthday Themed Chinese Take Out Box

Birthday Themed Chinese Take Out Box

Birthday Themed Chinese Take Out Box

The Cutting Cafe Shop is the sister store to The Cutting Cafe.  The shop sells paper, ribbon, and stamp sets like the Birthday Party Background one that I have used here.  I stamped it with Staz On ink onto clear cardstock, which is also sold at the shop.  I used white paper to better show the stamp but here is what it looks like without it…

This shows the window in the box without the white card that I used to help show the words better.

The actual box is made with the Chinese Take Out Box cutting template.  This can hold candy or a little gift.  And it is quick and easy to do!  I just added flowers on the sides but you can attach a handle using brads as the file even cuts the holes for you to use.

Christmas Ornament Treat Cup – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Ornament Treat Cup

Ornament Treat Cup

This week’s project for The Cutting Cafe is made from the Christmas Treat Cup Cards file, but this is a bonus ornament that is not a card! It is so cute and I can see many thing other than an ornament.  If you add some hands and numbers around the rim, it could be a clock!

It has a nice depth to it so you can get a good number of treats in it.  You can use resin pieces like I did or you can add candy or nuts also.

The back has a slide up tab to allow the goodies to come out.

The focus of the projects for this post is the With Gratitude Printable Stamp Set.  This file has over 70 images including many sentiments in square, round, and rectangle shapes, background images, and borders.  Some come in color as well as black and white and some come in a couple different sizes.

I also used the Large Top Box template .

I used one of the treasure word definition sentiments on the front of the box.

I wanted the box to look great from both sides so I added another sentiment on the back…

I printed the circle printable background from the file and usedit to cut out the liner pieces of the box.

A great thing about the Large Top Box is that it adjusts to whatever you need to go in it as it slides to fit.  Here is it with nothing in it…

When you add your goodies the top will just sit on top of your tallest item.  Here is what I put in mine…

Post It Notes Box Set – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

7 Aug

Post It Note BoxIt is time for another project for The Cutting Cafe!  This time we had two files we could choose from, The Mini Note Pad and Card Set Printable Stamp Set or The Post It Note Box and Cover Set which I used.  The file comes with covers for the Post It Notes, a couple versions of a belly band that you can add, plus labels.  I love how it turned out.  It will make a cute little gift for someone.

Make sure you visit The Cutting Cafe Blog on the 7th and 21st of each month as our design team projects are posted those dates.  Leave a comment and you will be entered into a drawing to win three files of your choice!  Plus we love reading your comments!

I had paper in my stash that was double-sided and the color combo was a bit different so I thought I might as well pull something old out to use it.  The red with white circles used on the label on the front is the other side of the pink paisley paper.  So the inside is finished instead of just being white.

Here are a few different views…
