3D Cup – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

3D Cup Front

This week at the Cutting Cafe, we were to use the relatively new file, 3D Cup Template and Cutting File.  This is a cute file that you can keep full size as a treat holder or RAK holder, or you can do something a bit different and resize the file and make tiny favors with it. Although the file comes with a lot of sentiments, I made my own which just says Mugs & Kisses and I filled it with Hershey’s Kisses.

I added bling to the top and bottom and on the sides…

This week at The Cutting Cafe, it was all about jars.  There are many files to choose from but I chose the Jar Shaped Cards file and used the mason jar with window.  I sized it down quite a bit to make them mini.

These work well for swap gifts and exchanges.  Here is a sample of packaging for that purpose…

Mailbox Treat Box

Hello everyone!  This week at The Cutting Cafe, the design team is all about Valentine’s Day.  Since we all have men in our lives, I decided to make my project with the men in mind.

I used the Mailbox Template and Cutting File Set.  There are two mailbox versions.  I used the second one and used non-traditional colors to give it a more masculine feel, as well as some brads that look like screw heads.

I used the patterned paper on the sides also.

I used some of the printable sentiments that come with the set on the back…

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…

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…

Fall Themed Milk Cartons – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

7 Oct

Hello there!  It has been a month since I posted anything!  I am sorry for the wait!  But today I have two cute milk cartons I made for The Cutting Cafe‘s Design Team!  These will house goodies for my god children. I used the Halloween and Fall Milk Carton cutting file.  The file comes with several cut outs.  I used the leaf and the pumpkin and added acetate to the window cutout.

My god son is nine and absolutely hates glitter so I still had to bling his up, just with acrylic pieces…

My god daughter is 3 1/2 and loves glitter!  So for hers, I used glitter paper and some glittered embellishments…

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.

I added a flower to the side but you can attach a handle to each side if you choose.

There are overlays in the file, which the tree is cut from a different color.  I chose only to put one on the front.

Here is the back.

One could be added to the back if you wanted to which would cover up the part that folds down in the back.

I also used the Christmas Hershey Kiss Bottoms Printable Stamp set on the kisses I filled the bag with.

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.
