Snow Globe Shaker Card ~ By DT Member Chantel Schroeder

Hi everyone, Chantel here today.

No matter how well I plan, I always seem to need a few more cards in the last days just before Christmas.  This year of course was no different:)  

So, if you're anything like me and still need a few last minute cards, why not try one of these cute little snow globe shaker cards? 

Isn't it adorable?  Well, not only is the snow man super cute, but what I love most about this card is that I was able to cut all the pieces (apart from the snowman) out of ONE piece of 12' x 12' cardstock.  Isn't that awesome?  

How did I do it you may ask?  Well, here's the scoop:

I used the Snow Globe card from the Holly Days Boxes and Cards Kit/Collection and imported all the required pieces into my software.  I then drew squares around the pieces and filled them with papers from Fleurette's New Merry and Bright Coordinating Paper Pack.  Here's a snapshot of the layout in my software:

Before sending it to my printer, I ensured that all the outlines where set to no colour and I also set my cut lines at the same time.  By doing it this way, you will not only be able to see where your pieces are in the cut window, but you'll also be sure to get clean cuts with the print and cut feature.  This is such a good trick as your cuts will always look perfect even if the printer calibration is slightly off. 

Next I imported the Snow Man SVG Cut File and Printable and sized him down a touch so that he would fit into the snow globe.  Once all the pieces were cut out, I assembled him as usual and gave him a cute Peachy Keen stamped face which I coloured with watercolour pencils.  

Finally, to make the "glass" for the snow globe, I cut an acetate circle slightly larger than the center of the globe piece.  I used Glossy Accents to adhere the acetate onto the back of the top snow globe piece.  I then added some dimensional foam all around the back of the globe piece and put some fake snow in it before I adhered it onto the snow globe base.   
A touch of ribbon and viola - one super cute snow globe card ready in time for Christmas!

Design tip:  Now that you've already designed the card in your software, why not make a few more?  By simply clicking on each block and filling it with different digital paper, you can make more cards with entirely different looks in no time!  

I hope that you've enjoyed my project and that the tips and tricks will assist you when you make some of your own.  If you do, I would love to see so please do share on my Facebook page or on Fleurette Bloom's page.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Drum Gift Box Set ~ SVG Cut files Fleurette

Fleurette here :)  I've had so much fun Guest Designing for Trendy Twine this month!!!  Since Christmas is coming soon and this is my last post this month, I wanted to go out with a Bang!   So, I created these Christmas Drum Gift Boxes.  The Krafty Red Trendy Twine gives it that extra special touch!  Fill each drum full of goodies or special gifts, it's also an adorable addition to any Christmas decor.

Supplies needed to create the Christmas Drum Gift Box Set:
  • Card Stock
  • Hot Glue
  • Paper Glue
  • Krafty Red Trendy Twine
  • Fleurette Bloom SVG Cut Files - Nesting Round Cake Boxes
  • Adhesive Rhinestones
  • 2 - 3/8" x 2 3/4"Tie Rack Pegs for "drum sticks"  Available in the wood dept. of most craft stores.   (see photo below)
  • Ribbon 3/8"W - to go around top edge of lid. (double stick tape works great for quick application, or you can use little dots of hot glue).
Tip: Use hot glue to adhere the twine to the box edges,  just a tiny dot here and there is all you need.

The paper pack I used for this is "Let It Snow" 

Tie Rack Pegs that I used for drum sticks:

Stacking Christmas Tree: By DT Member Ilda Dias

Ilda here!
Are you all getting into the Christmas Spirit yet? I can't wait!!!

Today I am sharing with you a super cute stacking Christmas Tree I made using Fleurette Bloom files. Love how it turned out and how functional it is too!

This will make one cute Christmas gift for sure... all I need to do is add some treats to the inside!

Here are the files you will need to recreate this tree and what I did...

(cut 5 and score down the center of each, glue them back to back)

Tree - Stacking Round Cake Box from Celebrations 3D SVG Kit 
(cut one extra box and enlarged it)

Tag - Party Hat tag from Celebrations 3D SVG Kit 
(deleted cut lines, folded in half)

(cut smallest box and resized it)

How cute is that tag?
The stamp I used comes from Craftin Desert Divas Happy Celebrations Stamp Set

This gorgeous double sided paper has been sitting in my stash for a while!
It's from K&C Company.

Check out all the layers I have to fill up with goodies!
#svgcutfiles #svgcuttingfiles #svgcutfileschristmas #svgcutsfiles #svgcutfilesbox #svgcutfileshatbox
I think this would make a perfect teacher's gift, hostess gift or a great decoration for yourself! Hope this Stacking Christmas Tree has inspired you to be a little creative today :)

Happy Crafting!

Thanksgiving Pumpkin Boxes ~ By DT Member Chantel Schroeder

Hi everyone, Chantel here today to share with you my latest DT project.

Although we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in Australia, I simply couldn't resist making Fleurette's cute little pumpkin boxes from the Harvest Happenings 3D SVG kit!  I just love the colours of fall (again not something we see much of here in the Sunshine State), so I was thrilled to use some lovely fall papers for a change.

For the tag, I resized the leaf place setting files from the same kit and sprayed them with some Perfect Pearls mixed with water for a touch of shimmer. Whilst the leaves were still wet, I crinkled and curved them a bit and then dried them with a heat gun.  I think it gives them a more natural look, don't you? 

I did the same for the leaves on top of the boxes and then ran the vines through a crinkle machine before I curled them.  As a final touch, I added some natural twine around the stems and grouped the boxes together with ribbon and some more twine.

I'm really pleased with how my trio turned out and so happy that I decided to do this project even though we don't celebrate Thanksgiving. I hope that I've inspired you to make some too! 

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Thanksgiving!

Fall Leaf Wreath: Guest Designer for Trendy Twine

I am having so much fun being a Guest Designer for Trendy Twine!  I really wanted a pretty fall wreath for my front door and thought why not make one out of paper!  To embellish it I chose  a few beautiful colors of Trendy Twine, picking up on the colors in the papers.  I also threaded twine through the buttons around the edge of the wreath, adding lots of texture and dimension.

Supplies needed to create this Fall Leaf Wreath:
  • Card Stock
  • Paper Glue
  • Hot Glue
  • Buttons
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors

Fleurette Bloom SVG Cutting Files:
Fall Leaf Wreath ~ Full directions for the wreath come with the file

Don't have a cutting machine?  No worries!  Try our New Hand Cut Project File!
Fall Leaf Wreath Hand Cut Project File ~ Print out the images on your home printer, cut and glue!

The coordinating paper pack I used to create this project is "Summertime Fun".

This project can be completely cut on 8.5" x 11" card stock, of course you can size it larger if you want by using 12" x 12" card stock 

How To Create Wreath Bow

Cut twine in 39" strips wrap twine around 4 fingers leaving tail at each end.

Slide off fingers ~ it should look like this

Cut a strip of twine about 5" and tie around loops ~ as shown below

Trim ends and glue a button in the center, then glue onto your wreath

I think the multi strand Trendy Twine bow adds just the right finishing touch :)

If you create one, please share it with us on the Fleurette Bloom Facebook Page!

Flower Gift Box By: Fleurette Bloom ~ Trendy Twine Guest Design Spot

When I was asked to Guest Design for Trendy Twine I was so honored, as it is my absolute  favorite go to for that extra special finishing touch on projects.  Also the quality of the product and people are top notch!!!

Today I am sharing with you a pretty fall themed gift box that I embellished with Orange Truffle  and Totally Sky Trendy Twine giving the appearance that it is all wrapped up.  The fun part is you can open it without removing the twine! It will always look like a pretty wrapped up package / decoration.  I think this will make an extra special gift!

To create this special gift box, I used the following Fleurette Bloom  3D SVG files and Paper Collection:

The Trendy Twine I embellished with is: 
* To attach the twine so that the box can be open and closed without removing it:
     1. Cut strands of twine long enough to reach around two sides and top of box.
     2. Drape strands over top and sides of box forming and X.
     3. Glue twine strands with hot glue to the top / center of the box (let strands drape down the                    sides.
     4. Glue bottom ends of twine to bottom edge of box, then cut so they are even with the bottom of            the box. 
     5. Glue on your leaves and flower to top of box.
