Fall Milk Carton – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

7 Sep
Fall Milk Carton

                       Fall Milk Carton

It’s milk cartons galore for The Cutting Cafe’s Design Team this week!  We were asked to use one of three milk carton cutting files for our projects this time.  These cute cartons can be used for candy, little embellishments, jewelry, or whatever you would like to put in them.  I used the Halloween and Fall Milk Carton and I am just using it as a decoration for my desk at work for fall.

The file comes together very quickly.  If you don’t have an electronic cutting machine, you have the option of cutting by hand as the files all come in a PDF format.

For my project, I made the Sleigh Treat Box.   We could choose any Christmas file we wanted to and I had not done this one and thought it would make a good gift for a co-worker during the holidays.  You can fill it with candy or a gift card.  The file comes with may layers to give you variety.  It also comes with sentiment tags (I made my own from a stamp as my printer was not cooperating) and several sizes of a flower.Here are a few other views of it…

Round Basket with Handle – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

20 Apr

Round Basket with Handle Front

It is time for another design team post for The Cutting Cafe!  This time we could choose from two files, the Round Basket with Handle, which I used, or the Round Easter Basket Set.

Both of these files are very nice for making little gifts for people as you can fill them with goodies and wrap them up in a clear bag and tie with ribbons.  I added pearl and chinese braid trims as well as single pearls and a cherub.

Lucky to Know You Card and Spool Box

It is design team post time at The Cutting Cafe!  In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, our projects had to be green but we could choose from any of the files we wanted to use.  Make sure you stop by the blog as there will be a lot of variety!  Plus leave a comment while you are there.  Each post, Regina, the owner, randomly pulls a name from the comments from the previous post.  That person gets three files of their choice!  Now that is not bad at all for leaving a comment!

I picked two files this time.  I needed a gift so I used the Ribbon Spool Set which has a spool box in the set among other things.  I also picked a new file, Lucky to Know You Overlay Set which is a card and has the overlay with it.

I added teardrop pearl strands, single flat back pearls, flowers, and a die cut word.  I also added pearl bling on a roll  to the top of the sides of the box.

YouTube Favor Box/Bag Swap

Princess Carriage Favor Box

Princess Carriage Favor Box

I participate in a swap hosted by Live Love Scrap who is Bona on YouTube.  We were to make favor box/bag kits that featured lace, embellishments, and a sentiment.  We made one to show what it looks like, then packaged all the materials in a kit for our swap partners to put together themselves.

I found this cute carriage file at the Silhouette Online Store and knew that is what I wanted to make.

I added lace and pearl trims to the top, and used bling flowers for three of the wheels.  On the 4th wheel, I used a stamp that I embossed and fussy cut.  The silver heart is dangling slightly inside the cut out heart.

I added little bows on the sides under the heart cutouts…

On the top I added a rose and some iridescent pink pearls along with a silver thanks sentiment…

Of course for a swap, you need great packaging.  I used another Silhouette file to make these cute bags with a princess crown belly band…

It’s time for another design team project for The Cutting Cafe!  We post our projects on The Cutting Cafe Blog on the 7th and 21st of each month.  Make sure you stop over to see all the projects.  If you leave a comment, you will be entered into a drawing held on the next post.  The winner gets three free files of their choice!  Plus we love reading the comments!

Now on to my projects.  This time we were able to choose any file we wanted to use from the large collection of Valentine themed files.  I actually chose four different files to work with.  I made little treats and cards for staff.  First I used the Hershey Kiss Window Card file along with the Lots of Kisses Printable Set for the sentiment.  I made two different cards, one more pink based…

The sentiments are designed to look like the paper strip that hangs out of the kisses.  But I also used the Happy Valentines Day version of it on the inside under my stamped sentiment…

Those hearts on the inside of my card were the cutouts from the box and the card and I used another sentiment on the front of the boxes, and I randomly added little dots of Stickles on the front of the boxes for a bit of added bling…
