Simple and Fast SVGCuts One Piece Boxes!

Hi everyone! I know it’s been a little while since my last post and I apologize! I have been working on making products for the upcoming Holiday season. I know it’s only July but is it really ever to early to start working on products for my favorite Holidays?! I love Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas! Today, I want to share with you some one piece gift boxes from SVGCuts. These boxes are great because you can use them for any season or any occasion just by changing the paper. Unfortunately, these will not be available in my Etsy shop. However, if you have a Cricut Explore or a Silhouette Cameo you can easily make these boxes. Below you can see 3 of the boxes that I made with the files. I decided to go a with Fall theme because I had a pretty 12×12 paper pad with fall paper.

These boxes are so simple to put together! If you want to watch the video to see how it’s assembled, just click below. I personally don’t use the same glue as Mary. Instead, I use Martha Stewart Gel Adhesive which I have provided a link to below.

I hope that you enjoyed todays post!

Newton’s Nook Inky Paws Challenge #22 – Birthday

Hi everyone! One of my favorite companies, Newton’s Nook, is having another Inky Paws Challenge! The theme of the challenge is birthday, which is perfect since I only have 2 birthday sets from them. My goal is to have all the cute cat sets but for now I just have 2.

I decided for the challenge to utilize both of my sets which are Birthday Bash and Birthday Flutter. Also, I used a die set from Taylored Expressions called Color Block Cutting Plate. This die set comes with 11 dies! Don’t let the number scare you! I only used 3 of the dies from the set; the large main die and 2 of the smaller dies.

To make the card I ran the large main die through my Sizzix Big Kick twice, once with yellow card stock and once with Copic quality card stock. Then I used the scallop die with green paper and the smaller die with white card stock. I stamped my images using Memento Black Ink and colored them with Copic markers. For the balloons, I stamped several balloons onto Post-it Tape and cut them out to create masks. I used the masks to create the layers look of the balloons. Also, I used my clear Wink of Stella Marker to add some sparkle to the balloons. Unfortunately, you can’t see it in the picture but I promise it is there! To stamp the greeting, I used Versafine Black ink because it makes a nice crisp impression. Assembling the card is the easy part! First, I adhered the yellow frame to my white card base using my Zig Glue Pen. Be careful that everything is straight so that your pieces will fit in their spots. Next, I adhered all the pieces into the their spots using my ATG gun.

I loved making this card! I hope that it inspires you to combine stamp sets together and even companies together to create awesome cards!
