Reindeer Gift Box

I used a few files from My Scrap Chick to make this cute reindeer box.  I used a reindeer head from Santa & Friends and added it to the Pumpkin Box.  I needed to make it a certain size for a customer to fit her treats inside so I decided to use that box, but My Scrap Chick has an adorable Reindeer Belly Box already created!!

The printed eyes are also from My Scrap Chick and are FREE here!!

"Heaven" Glass Light Block

I made this for my brother and sister-n-law and thought it turned out really pretty.

I used black vinyl and did reverse weeding and applied it to a glass block.  The sentiment was uploaded free from a Silhouette Facebook group.

I also added some large rhinestones to each corner and a large white ribbon is wrapped around it.

Snowman Snow globe Card

I love the new adorable snowman from Fleurette Bloom so I decided to combine it with her snow globe card!
You can get the Snowman HERE and the Snow globe card in the great Holly Days set HERE!  The pretty poinsettia is also from the Holly Days set.  I changed the shape of my snow globe to fit my snowman so he could be pretty big.  After I was finished, I thought it would have been fun to make this a shaker card by adding a layer of clear acetate over the top with glitter inside!

The cute snowflakes are plastic and glittery and I found them at Michaels.

Santa Countdown to Christmas 2

Someone had seen a pin from Pinterest of my Santa Countdown and asked me to make some for her daughter's Preschool class, but I decided to use a cuter Santa (different from the other one I had made HERE).  I liked how these turned out so much better!  I used the Santa file from My Scrap Chick called Sweet Winter Faces.  I enlarged the whole Santa head as big as possible.  It is almost a full 12" x 12"!  I did a print and cut with the numbers on the beard.  I used lots of foam pop dots to add lots of dimension and inked all the edges to give depth and personality. 

  Just add cotton balls daily to each number and countdown (or up) to Christmas!

Fall Acorn Pillow Box

For my Design Team Project for Fleurette Bloom, I made this pillow box that would be a perfect hostess gift Turkey Day or anytime!  I used several files to pull this all together and I think it turned out really pretty.

Here are the files I used:
*Little Critters (acorn)

I had some pretty sunflower buttons that I hot glued on.

Coffee Maker Gift Box

I love this adorable coffee maker from SVGCutting Files called My Cuppa Joe!  The little gift card holder came from the Silhouette Store and is called Keep Calm Drink Coffee.  I just printed it out, added a back side so it is a little pouch to hold the coffee gift card.

Santa Gift Box

I loved the new Santa Boot that recently came out from 
My Scrap Chick and I immediately knew what I wanted to do with them! (I don't recommend using black card stock with a white core though!!!)  But I had already cut all the pieces and didn't want to re-cut   I tried to cover with black ink, but it didn't work.  Oh well!
Make a Santa!
Here are the files I used to make this cutie:
*Santa's Boot (make 2)
*Pinwheel Flower Cupcake Box ( I made this as large as it would fit on my mat )
*Sweet Winter Faces (Santa head)
*Santa Claus 5 Piece Set  (belt buckle)
*Santa & Friends (gloves)

 The top comes off to reveal a place to add goodies, gift cards, etc!

 I stuck candy canes in the sides of the boot since the space was there and it looks pretty cute!
 He stands 14" tall.

My Scrap Chick just came out with some adorable Christmas Tree Box files and I made up a bunch of them with different looks!  There are files for 3, 4 and 6 sides and different embellishments for each tree!  The set is called Mix & Match Tree Box Trio.
So cute!

Pour Boxes (School Girl & School Boy)

I love the pour boxes from My Scrap Chick.  The file is HERE.  I added some reading bears from the School Bears file.  I did a print and cut with the bears.  Although the file itself is not a print and cut file, I just layered the files on top of each other , grouped and then cut around using my Cameo cutting machine.  It is easy to do but takes a little time.

Race Car~Zoom Zoom Card

I did a really quick print and cut card for my son's 6th birthday and just wanted to share.  I used My Scrap Chick's Zoom Zoom file.  This isn't a print and cut file, but I layered all the colored pieces, grouped them and then cut with my Cameo.  Super easy!  It's takes a little time to layer the pieces, but easy to do!

I did a little inking and added some white dots and a few buttons and done!

Candy Corn Gift Box

Candy Corn Gift Box made using My Scrap Chick's

These boxes are so simple and easy to make!

Halloween Goodie Treat Bags

LOOK at this adorable digital paper from Fleurette Bloom called Oh Candy Corn!  Isn't it just the cutest and right now you can download it for FREE!

I printed the digital paper on white AC Card Stock and then used a file from My Scrap Chick called Halloween Treat Bags and cut it out from the printed paper.  They went together so perfectly!!

I put clear acetate with white dots behind the candy corn cutout.  Looks cute and makes it more sturdy!

The tag banner I just made myself and printed it out and stuck them behind the buttons.  I added a little twine and inked the edges.  Super cute and simple gift bags using matching printable paper!
Go get your paper (it comes in purple too!!) and check out all the other great files from Fleurette Bloom!

Halloween Treat Boxes

I combined several files from My Scrap Chick to create these cute little Halloween Gift Boxes.  

The base of the box is the Pumpkin Box.  I made the box as large as possible on my mat.  

Then I used the Halloween Treatbag Toppers and Cards set to add to the top of the box. I just sized them to cover the top part.  I used the knife in my cutting program to make extra arms to match the skin color.  Then I just made some rectangle "sleeves" matching the box color to cover up parts of the arm I didn't want showing.

The titles on the front are from Fright Night Titles and Under Your Spell Word Title.

Caramel Apple Gift Box

Being as caramel apples are so popular this time of year, I thought it would be fun to make a gift box using 
My Scrap Chick's apple box from the School House Trio set.  I "made" my own caramel in my software cutting program.  I used a real Popsicle stick too!
