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.

Christmas Tree Goodie Bag Holders

This week for The Cutting Cafe, the design team got to use any Christmas file we wanted to.  I have been in craft fair mode so I chose this cute Christmas Tree Goodie Bag Holder.  It can be used to hold candy, money, or crafty items like I have used.  It makes a great craft fair item, teacher or coworker gift, or a stocking stuffer.

My First Craft Fair

20 Nov

This past Saturday I did my first craft fair.  It went fairly well.  I wish there had been more traffic, and my tablecloth is wrinkled, but for the first time, I am ok with it.

Altered Talenti Gelato Jar

Altered Talenti Gelato Jar

For our The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project we were tasked to use an item that we would throw away, like a jar or bottle, and make a Christmas project out of it.  Well I used a jar and came up with this pretty!

I used three files from the cafe, the Christmas Bell Shaped Shaker Card for the bells on the front and the Christmas Colored Basic Shapes for the sentiment…

Scrapdaworld’s Christmas/Winter Tag Swap – My Entry

4 Dec
Tag for Scrapdaworld Christmas/Winter Theme Tag Swap

Peace Ornament Tag

My friend Tmika who is Scrapdaworld on YouTube always hosts fun swaps.  This time it was a Christmas/Winter shaped tag swap.  I had a different tag in mind but I had technical difficulties with it lol.  My Cricut Expression was just not cooperating!

So, I came up with this tag and I like it.  I glittered the tag in stages and it worked well.  I really like the white and gold.

I made a box envelope to package them…

Christmas Gable Box – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Christmas Gable Box

Christmas Gable Box

Hey all!  Christmas is just about a month and a half away!  Where did 2016 go?  It was just summer!!!  Well it is time to get started making those little gifts for family, friends, co-workers, etc.!  The Cutting Cafe has the perfect new file to help you out with treat giving.

The Gable Box file come with a lot of variety so that you can customize your box for the occasion.  There are windows that come in different shapes, some have words in the window.  You can choose straight edge or scalloped edge. There are toppers you can add.

I made the plain box in white and used a black/gold/white paper for the topper pieces, then added a sentiment from the paper stack, and finally added a HUGE gold poinsettia clip that is just over the top!  The recipient can take the clip off and use it for decor or add to a package of their own.

Here is a view of it without the poinsettia…

Christmas Gable Box No Poinsettia

Here is the box without the Poinsettia.

I see a lot of these in my future as the larger size can hold little gifts and the mini ones can be used for little candy gifts or favors.  Here is one more view with the huge flower…
