Made this girly gift box using my favorite SVGCuts! I used my purse that I bought in Vienna Austria as an inspiration. Click on the banner to the right and it will take you to their site if you want to buy the file. I used the Playful Parlor collection and chose the “Playful gift bag.” I customize it by using satin cord and creating a strap for it to make it look more like a real purse. All the files come pre-measured for you so need to configure them. The finish box is 9.5″ wide x 4.5″ deep x 6 1/4″ tall.
Today we had a fun time at my sister’s house. She is expecting so I made a cute “mommy to be” card for her and gave her some maternity clothes (this is her first child). I had made my mom’s card before so I thought I would just add a cute envelope. Here are my two projects for Mother’s Day:
I used the New Arrival cricut cartridge on this card. The mommy was cut at 4 1/2 inches. I cut three layers: 1 black, 1 brown and 1 patterned paper. The black was used for the main figure. The brown was used for the pants and the hair (I used a silver marker to make the polka dots) and I used the glitter stack for the patterned paper. The card was cut at 5″ tall x 4 1/2 wide.
Now for the hippo on the envelope I used the create a critter cutting it at 4 1/2 inches. I used the moving eyes (found at Michaels) and the Martha Stewart glitter polka dots paper. I used plan fuschia card stock and pink card stock for the back ground and mouth of the hippo.
Today I did a smaller project. I used my Stand and Salute cartridge cutting the triangle banner at 6 1/2″ Fit to length button (using 9 x 11 1/2 paper). I used the Storybook cartridge to cut out my letters and shadows at 4 1/2″. I used Sparkles cotton candy pink paint to draw a border around the triangles. I used a flower stamp using green ink. I connected all the triangles but punching holes on each top side of the triangle and weaving in the string.
