Snowflake Kisses Treat Box – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Snowflake Kisses Treat Box

Snowflake Kisses Treat Box

Hello!  It has been a while since I posted, or even crafted.  We recently moved and I did not have time for anything but packing.  I have not begun to unpack my craft room yet, but I dug some things out to do this project.

For this posting of the Design Team of The Cutting Cafe, we could choose any file to work with as long as our project was about Christmas.  I used the Snowflakes Kisses set which has two boxes, the treat box, which I used and a square box.

The paper I used has holographic foiled snowflakes on it.  I had some holographic bling so I added those to the centers of the big snowflakes on each side.

The bling center is holographic to go with the holographic foiling on the paper.

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…

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.

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…
