Cute Pumpkin Pillow Boxes – A Design Team Project for The Cutting Cafe

7 Oct
Pumpkin Pillow Boxes

Pumpkin Pillow Boxes

It has been a while.  Hello!  Today for my The Cutting Cafe design team project, I have made some cute pillow boxes with pumpkin cutouts.  I used the Pumpkin version of the Halloween Pillow Boxes.

I added an optional layer around the pumpkin and backed the opening with acetate.  I added a resin leaf at the bottom for an accent.

I used a resin leaf embellishment.

An I added a resin pumpkin on the top to act as a handle of sorts…

Steampunk Tote Bag Purse and Mini Wallett

Steampunk Timeless Tote and Wallet

My Steampunk version of the Our Daily Bread Designs Timeless Tote and Wallet Dies

I am in the Steampunk Fantasy Collaboration with Poetspice on YouTube, which runs from July 25 through August 29, 2018.  I am usually a clean and simple crafter but like the steampunk genre and have a good stash of steampunk paper, stamps, and embossing folder and thought this would be a great way to use some of my stash.  I also have had the Timeless Tote and Petite Wallet die sets from Our Daily Bread Designs for a couple months and have not had a chance to play with it.  So, why not a steampunk version of the purse?  This is how it came out…

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…

Tissue Box Cover

This week for our design team project for The Cutting Cafe, we were to use the Tissue Box Cover Template.  I needed something elegant in white and gold to use in my office for Christmas as my decorations are white and gold.  This fits the bill perfectly.  I also used the Bow with Slit Template File to make the glitter bow.

Here is a view of the back…
