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…

Lucky to Know You Card and Spool Box

Lucky to Know You Card and Spool Box

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.

I also made a skinny spools to wrap lace around.  I am putting them and other goodies in the box.

Apple Treat Box – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

Apple Treat Box

Apple Treat Box

This week at The Cutting Cafe we had a back-to-school theme with a choice of files featuring apples, school busses, pencils and other school themed items.  We could use the Bus Shaped Card, the School Borders Printable Stamp Set, or the Apple Treat Box which I used.

This file is very easy and can be done easily by hand, so you do not need to have an electronic cutting machine.  That is one great thing about Regina’s files…they come in multiple formats including PDFs so that those without an an electronic cutter can still make beautiful items!

I used a cute orchard patterned paper, some bling leaves, bling mesh trim, and a woodgrain patterned ribbon.  I finished it with a rust color leaf, a gold bow and a thanks sentiment.   Here are a few other views:

Hershey Kiss Treat Box – My Design Team Project for The Cutting Cafe

16 Jan

It’s Inspiration Wednesday yet again (it does happen weekly you know) on The Cutting Cafe’s Blog!  Be sure to stop by to see all the fabulous designs.  This week’s theme was Valentine’s Day.  We had a few files to choose from and I chose the Hershey Kiss Treat Box file.  This was very easy to make.

You don’t need to have a cutting machine as all the files at the Cafe come in PDF format as well as multiple cutting formats.  I printed the PDF on cardstock and patterned paper (for the lining) and hand cut the pieces.  Once cut, all I had to do was glue it together and decorate.  Simple and easy!

I love the white chocolate kisses and for Christmas they have peppermint chips in them and come in a red striped foil.  For Valentine’s Day I think the swirl is raspberry.  So, in the vein of the white chocolate kisses, here is my project.  Thanks for stopping by!
