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…

Christmas Gable Box – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

6 Nov
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…

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

Birthday Themed Chinese Take Out Box

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.
